Pix of Grant Lord's Corona lit for night flight

At the end of August in Chilliwack, Grant Lord, aka "neweflier" celebrated the 1st anniversity of his coming out of the "heli closet" by doing night flight on his Corona. The local dollar store ate up his US bucks over the course of a few night's worth of experimenting with glow sticks. Later on he also added a couple of LEDs stolen from his Gym-E to light up the bottom of the blades a little.

I was surprised how well he did without the blades really lit. Nose in, and fast forward flight up and down the runway. It sorta looked like an evil ground squirrel

Cheers!

Glen

Now if i could just find some lit blades for the darn thing, we might

Yeah Grant, I'd love to see you and Glen fly Logo 10's at night next Chilliwack outing. Maybe I"ll have night blades for mine then too.

Dang, and I thought my flashing lights on my 120 were cool.

Nice work Grant!
