The Black Bearons On The Wing (Flying at the U. Maine RC Flying Club Field)
Four Black Bearons on the flight line.
This is what everyone is watching...
Once the batteries are "burnt up", it's time for a landing...
... and a more or less gentle touch down.
After touch down we can get a better look at the trainer aircraft. Although in good shape after this flight, it shows the scares of some less successful outings.
This is what the Black Bearons club has for controlling aircraft. Two of these are used. One is in the hands of an experienced pilot. The other is used by a trainee. If the trainee gets the aircraft in trouble, the experienced pilot can intervene before something bad happens... most of the time.
And here's how it gets into the air.
