Landing was near Utica NE in a cornfield. Had to work for this one a little - very hard to spot in the fully mature corn. Could not pinpoint direction on beeper until about 50 ft away and could not see until 10 ft away. Used Aprsdroid to zero in to right general area. Horizon-pointing GoPro and still cameras ran launch to landing. Upward-pointing Kodak Zi6 quit after 10 minutes (3rd time in last 4 flights). Time for it to retire. 73 de Mark N9XTN
