This year on June 7-9 was the 3rd Annual of the “Utah Heli Bash” FunFly located in Saratoga Springs, Utah. The event was hosted by the Utah Helicopter Association.
This 3rd annual event was even better then the previous years with more pro pilots, and better Raffle Prizes! There were sponsored pilots from, Team Mikado, Team Amian Hobbies, team Align and Team Scorpion, and Raffle donations from many more companies
The noon demos consisted of demos from Many helicopter pilots such as Kyle Dahl, Donnie Petche, Ben Storick, Andrew Merlino, and then additionally Airplane Demos from Brandon Reimschiissel (Team AJ Aircraft)
The event wasn’t just for RC pilots, but also was advertised to the general public to spread awareness about our hobby. The crowd which attended the noon demos enjoyed them immensely!
For the raffle there were big prizes such as a Logo 700 from Mikado USA, a new Goblin Kraken from SAB, as well as many other ESC, and Swag from Scorpion USA, along with other donations from many other companies.
Then one really great part of this event was the night flying on Saturday Night! The organizers arranged some spot lights and a fire to keep everyone warm and then there was great night flying from Pros and Normal Pilots alike! Additionally there was airplane demos as well!
