Well Dave, I searched the net alittle for the word "Huckin" I see it in sentences like, "I was just Huckin around our field today", Or "He was Huckin that thing around".
From what i gather i suppose it's slang for "Chuck" "Chuckin".... Something like "A few of the Fly Boys were "Chuckin" those things around the sky."....
Im not positive..

I heard people ask about that also. I just looked in my old Webster's Dictionary and the closest thing I found was "huckster".

huck-ster (huk'ster) 3. one who employs showy methods to effect a sale, win votes, etc.

Heres is a link with a more appropriate definition.

[link=http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Hucking]Urban Dictionary: hucking[/link]

Seems like that term simply spilled over onto 3D R/C flying.

Thanks, Cobra289. I've gotten way out of touch with the current slang. I thought maybe it referred to a specific maneuver.

Alan, that's a useful link. So, I'm going to take it to mean throwing your plane around the sky in a precarious manner.

Huckin' is where you take an empty toilet paper tube, pack it with wadded up toilet paper, then inhale deeply into one end of this contraption while you spray the open end with aerosol paint. This is how those guys who fly 3D foamies invent those new manuevers.

Truckin', but I don't see how that's relevant.

We said huck more often than chuck when we were kids. Actually, I think we use wing or whip instead of chuck most of the time.

Huckin' might also be be what you start doing after you open the box and see what your ARF looks like in real life.
