Newest Addition to the Corona Fleet

Well, I finally got it finished over the weekend and ready for the first flight.

I would appreciate some suggestions on how to trim out the Corona on the first flight. I have the swash plate level both directions and I have the gyro turning the tail rotor correctly. What should I be prepared for once it's off the ground. I have ran the motor up to the point where it scoots across the floor, but not off the ground. Seems to want to turn to the right as it moves across the floor.

Any other double checks before the first flight?

Stats: AF motor w/ Castle Creation 35P (new programmable model), Futaba GY240 gyro, Battaries - Sanyo CP2400SCR x 7, Deans Ultra, Hitec Eclipse w/ 555 and HS 81 servos.

The right is normal for a heli. Pucker up and fly!

Keep it around 1 ft off the ground until you can fly out a whole pack at least.

Watch for tail wag and turn the gyro down if it does it.

Remember to fly the NOSE, not the tail.

AND BREATH !!!!!!!!
