Video on Corona in slow flight...

Ok, it seems that pepole think that you must rush around with the Corona, so this is proof that you can fly as slow as you want to. As always, this video was taken during WINDY conditions...
You can see how the Corona picks up speed down wind.

I also have a video on my Raptor the same day, and as you can see on the smoke from it, it is really blowing...

I am longing for that hot summer day, when it is still, or maybe just a gentle breze...If it ever arrives...

Ok, here´s the link:

enjoy

Hi Tom,
I'm not able to see your video. Did you try to see it from this link? It might be my computer, I don't know. Let me know if it works for you.

Thanks...........Sylvain

Tom, you make it look so easy :-) Got a few questions for you after watching all of your videos (Again)....

Do you have to add much throttle while in a banked turn to maintain altitude? Or do you just keep the speed up and vary for and aft cyclic to maintain level turns?

You use the 6 blade grips right? Have you tried the 4 grips? Just wondering...

Have you ever flown a sim? If so, what sim and model is closest to the feel and response of the Corona with your setup?

I am going crazy waiting till my birthday to get my Corona... Just working on building skill on the Imapla in RFG2 and wondering how I can prepare my self better? I am doing nose-in with slightly gustly 5 mph wind settings and it is helping me make adjustments in pitch to maintain altitute in gusts.

Smooooooth.. Great flying Tom!

The last chopper on your video, was that a Corona also?

How come the tail boom is so thick? Is that just the way it is?
