Go Back   HeliFreak > Blogs > 3D HCHC

HCHC was a loose knit Heli club in Austin Texas twenty years ago. We were very fortunate as a group to have a fellow that knew what he was doing join us and show us many things. We would pretty much fly anytime we could through pretty much any kind of weather. One morning we were out in 20 plus winds and misting rain when one of the guys said "You know, a person has got to be kinda serious or crazy to come out and try to practice in this kind of weather. I think we should call ourselves the Hard Core Helicopter Club. " Well the name stuck and someone even made up some hats for us. And no, not a one of us was flying a fixed pitch heli.

So this blog is called 3D HCHC. I now live in San Antonio Texas and hope HeliFreaks from this area visit

Found one place to fly

Over near IH 10 and Loop 410 about a half mile Northeast of that junction there are a few very large open fields where folks fly.

One of the hobby shop owners in town called them outlaw fields because it is not an "official" flying field. My answer to that is that these "official sanctioned" plank clubs do not have what heli guys want or need. Back in the day, the plank guys would bitch and moan about us chopper guys. They claimed it was unsafe to fly helicopters. Bah humbug. I can assure you that a responsible heli guy is as safe or more safe than a plank flyer. We realize the damn things can hurt you if not cautious. IT IS NOT A TOY !! Nuff said.

    I agree! I fly my 450/600 in a local park, but still I have to be on the lookout for other people which isn't fun. I wish I had a dedicated field to fly in.
