Flying My Corona Pics

Here are a few photos of flying my Corona the other evening after getting home from work. Not much time to head to a flying field, so a little hovering around in my backyard.

Photos were taken by my wife with our new Cannon Powershot A60 Digital Camera,... nice an sharp.

Here I am spooling up in the grass,....

notice the concentration,...

Actually, I lost it into that fence in the second photo about a month ago. Wind kicked up, I lowered the trottle, but I drifted tail first into the fence, then the main blades,.... Damage, stripped a nylon gear set,.. 5 Minutes to fix. Picked it up, checked it over, and then hovered for a few seconds before calling it a night.
