Flying/Controlling Drop from Ground-Based T/C - Continued
ALL LANDINGS SHOULD BE INTO THE WIND.
When the system is approximately 50 feet (15 m) from the ground,
press the 50% or 100% BRAKING switch (8) to initiate a "flared"
landing. A "flare" produces the slowest forward speed and slowest
rate of descent possible.
Manual control from the ground can also be accomplished
using the external control switch assembly if the T/C rotary
switch (1) is placed in the EXT position.
With some loads, the 100% braking configuration stalls and
possibly imitates reverse flight. Use caution and be ready to
transition to a lesser braking configuration if stalls are
encountered, as rate of descent would be excessive.
