My Corona flown by an expert
Hi all -
I recently moved and was looking to join the local RC club. Got on the Internet (what did we do before the Internet?) and found the web site for the Modesto RC club, along with the phone numbers of all the officers. I called Jeff Hunter (the President of the club) and introduced myself. We chatted a bit and then he told me to bring my Corona over as he wanted to check it out.
So I get to his house and it turns out that he has been flying choppers for some 10 year or so and has several himself, including an electric JR. He's had a couple of Corona's but they were glow powered. He suggested that we go to a small park near by so he could check my Corona out.
We get to the park and get the Corona ready to fly. Jeff takes the controls and Wow...it can really fly! The Corona can really move! I was a bit nervous seeing my baby fly the way it was, but I knew it was in good hands. Anyway, he ran through two packs at twelve minutes each. Jeff was impressed with the Corona for sure. I'm meeting him at the flying field tomorrow for some expert hands on training. Wish I had my video camera with me. I think you might be impressed too. I'm looking forward to the day I'm that good with a chopper. I've already started looking at the Logo 10, 14, 16 or 20.
The bug has dug in deep!

The Corona will knock your socks off! All you need is a bit of patience and practice. There is a reason the Corona sells so well. It is durable, for sure. But, it is also avery well manored heli at high speed. Many collective helis have a very hard time keeping up with a Corona in a high speed stability run.
The Corona is not a Logo 10, to be sure. But, it is a very pleasing heli that just doesn't happen to hover inverted!
