Pre-Flight Checks
Flying
After Flying
Do not fly your aeroplane if it is a
windy day or there are strong
cross winds.
Always land your airplane into the
wind.
Safety Precautions
Always regulate the engine from behind,
but never from infront or from the sides,
because a rotating propeller might badly
injure you.
Only fly model aeroplanes in areas
away from houses and places
where people gather. The weight
and speed of your aeroplane make
it a potential hazard. Make sure
that the area around you is clear.
Fill the fuel tank.
Bring your airplane to a halt by
lowering the engine control trim.
For radio equipment, refer to the
instruction manual included with
your set.
Do not allow watching people to get too
close to a rotating propeller.
After each flight, the engine is hot. Beware of getting burned.
Check that the spinner and the
propeller are securely fastened.
By moving the various transmitter
controls, ensure that all control
surfaces move the way you
intend them to.
If the model begins to operate by
itself, there is another transmitter
operating on your frequency. Do
not try to operate your model if
this happens, but change your
transmitter and receiver crystals
to another frequency.
Switch off the receiver.
Move the throttle control stick
on the transmitter and check
that the carburettor opens and
closes easily.
Switch off the transmitter.
Fully extend
transmitter
aerial.
Switch on the transmitter.
Immediately disuse defective propellers
as well as deformed spinners.
If the batteries of the radio system
are flat, replace them with new ones.
To start the engine, set low throttle
on the transmitter and hold the
engine starter against the spinner.
Switch on engine starter.
Draw the remaining fuel out of the tank
and fill it back into the can
Do not fly your airplane above people
standing around.
Adjust the throttle needle.
Switch on the receiver.
Wipe up any fuel deposits or dirt.
Check that the wings are properly
and firmly affixed.
Never throw burning, gleaming or smouldering things into fuel cans, even if
these happen to be empty. This could
result in serious injury.
Launch the aeroplane into the wind.
Only use KYOSHO genuine parts.
