Radio Control Air Show: Flying PIlgrims.

  community member   < less Typical airplane at event

This is a show put on to demonstrate the Radio Controlled Airplane hobby to the general public.
The airplanes to be displayed and flown are what referred to as "Giant Scale". This means the model must be at least the size of the real aircraft and include both turbine jet and propeller driven models. Wingspans over 100 inches are common. Most of the models weigh between 15 and 50 lbs. Engine power ranges from 3 to 12 Hp. These are large models!
The models will fly all day during the show, and perform many aerobatic maneuvers during their flights. At noon flying is suspended for a time so spectators can inspect the airplanes up close and ask questions of the pilots. The models feature all the aspects of the full size aircraft as well, like retractable landing gear, flaps, and "smoke" systems, are common features.
Pilgrim Trail, 1/4mile North of Geddeson Ridge, Canton. $5/Carload. 248-348-1156. jrlane@!wowway.com [map]
