Hexacopter in a Thunderstorm

Okay not really. Maybe "near" a thunderstorm.

We got back from Cowboy Mounted Shooting in time for another dramatic thunderstorm. It was loud but short, and resulted in a pretty double rainbow:

After the rain stopped, we took the hexacopter out and Kevin flew a few batteries' worth. We found a county road not that far from the campground that ran between some train tracks and the Arkansas River. (Hexacopter/dot in upper right corner of photo below):

It was beautiful out, and I think he got some great footage. While he was flying, I took this photo of the storm cloud next to us. (It was moving away, luckily, but look how cool!)
