INTRODUCTION
Thank you for buying the Twister
400 Sport V2. It is the latest 400 size
fixed pitch helicopter with 4-channel
R/C, 2.4GHz radio and possesses
excellent flight stability. The Twister
400 Sport V2 is an ideal choice for
the beginner helicopter pilot as it
features professional 4-channel
operation combined with stable flight
characteristics. Intermediate/Advanced
pilots will also enjoy the more advanced
flight characteristics of the Twister 400
Sport V2.
V2 features an improved rotor head with
better flight performance and better
clearance between blades and boom to
reduce accidents. The transmitter has
been upgraded with digital trims and a
metal carrying handle. New anodised
metal frames, free training undercarriage
and a sparkling new colour scheme
are just some of the many additional
improvements to your V2.
Small and lightweight, the V2 can be
flown indoors or outdoors in calm
conditions so almost anyone can enjoy
the fun of R/C helicopter flight.

NEW TO R/C HELICOPTERS?
This model is not a toy. It can accelerate
very rapidly in flight and the rotating
blades are capable of inflicting severe
injuries if the model is not operated
responsibly!
If you are new to RC helicopters, please
do not expect to be able to open the
box and immediately ‘fly around’. RC
helicopters are fun to fly but require
some time and training in order to be
flown successfully.
If this is not what you were expecting,
we advise you not to buy this model.
Although the Twister 400 Sport V2 is
relatively easy to fly, please note that we
do not guarantee that by following the
information included with this product
you will be bound to achieve successful
helicopter flight. Neither do we
guarantee you will not break anything!!

GENERAL SAFETY
CONCERNING HELICOPTERS
Please be aware that rotating blades
can inflict painful and possibly serious
injury or damage to people, animals or
objects should the rotors strike someone
or something.
We recommend people use protective
eyewear when operating this model and
that you read the manual carefully before
operating your Twister 400 Sport V2.
Radio controlled models themselves can
reach high speeds and cover significant
distances rapidly if control is lost. This
model is capable of speeds of around
20mph (30kph) or greater. The model
must therefore be used responsibly and
with great care generally.
The model operates on the 2.4GHz radio
band using the latest 2.4GHz technology,
thereby providing probably the best
interference rejection for any R/C
frequency in use in the UK today.
In the UK, we recommend you observe
the model flying safety code of the British
Model Flying Association which can be
found at the following address:
http://www.bmfa.org
In Australasia, please contact your
hobby supplier.
Twister 400 Sport V2 Instruction Manual
FLYING AREA REQUIRED
The Twister 400 Sport V2 is designed
for indoor or outdoors flight in less than
5mph of wind. Ensure you have at least
3 metres of clear space all around the
Twister 400 Sport V2 before attempting
to take off. A hard, flat surface clear
of all obstacles is recommended for
training. Because of its size, the Twister
400 Sport V2 can be flown in virtually
any size room. However, you should fly
only where it is safe to do so and bear
in mind the smaller the room the more
likely you are to experience the effects of
rotor downwash causing instability and
therefore rendering the helicopter more
difficult to control.
ABOUT TRAINING, CRASHES
& SPARE PARTS
The Twister 400 Sport V2 has been
designed to be strong and very easy
to repair, however, the helicopter is
not invulnerable and most people will
tip their helicopter over or break parts
during their flying career. This is quite
normal. All parts are available as spares
from your local model shop. If repair is
necessary, carefully remember the order
in which you remove items so you may
put them can replace them in the reverse
order.
Unfortunately, crash damage is not
covered by warranty.

HELICOPTER CHARGING INSTRUCTIONS
Note: Your helicopter is fitted with a high power lithium polymer battery (lipo). Charge
the lipo battery in your Twister 400 Sport V2 before use.
▼ 1. Carefully connect the POLARISED white charge plug on the heli to the charger
ensuring it is the correct way around. You should not need to force it. See below.
WARNING: Do not force the charging connector into the charger socket!
Make sure the helicopter is switched off and the battery connector is disconnected
from the ESC connector as per the picture above.
▼ 2. Insert the AC power supply lead into the end of the 12V charger and switch on.
During the charging process power, the red LED will light.
The battery is fully charged when the green LED lights. This may take up to 120
minutes.
8
http://www.modelengines.com.au
▼ 3. The Lipo is charged when the green charge LED lights, disconnect the charger.
▼ 4. Unplug the AC power supply from both the wall socket and the charger.
▼ 5. Be sure to read the Lithium Polymer Battery Safety instructions in this manual.
WARNING: Do not leave the helicopter unattended whilst charging!
We recommend that you use only the supplied Twister charger­with this battery.
Over-discharging will shorten the life of the battery or damage it. Stop flying
immediately the helicopter has insufficient power to lift off. Recharge the battery.
Do not short circuit—battery may explode!
PLEASE READ THE ‘Lithium Polymer battery safety’ section BEFORE PROCEEDING
FURTHER.
LITHIUM POLYMER BATTERY SAFETY
Lithium polymer batteries contain potentially large amounts of energy, therefore if
your helicopter has crashed you should examine your battery for any damage e.g.
check if the battery has expanded or swollen in size or if the battery cells have been
punctured. If any of the above is true: DO NOT CHARGE THE BATTERY!
To check your battery, remove the body by unscrewing the body retaining screw and
pushing the body off the two upper mounting pins.
Body retaining screw
Charging your LiPo battery
ff Only use the charger supplied with this product to charge the lithium polymer
battery in the helicopter. Never use a nicad or other charger as this is very
dangerous.
ff Never charge unattended. Always stay with your battery whilst charging in case
of overheating or fire.
ff If the battery becomes hot to the touch during charging, disconnect the charger
immediately from the AC socket.
ff Extinguish fires with sand. If something goes wrong and your battery catches
fire, always have sand from a fire bucket at hand to douse the flames.
Twister 400 Sport V2 Instruction Manual

ff Do NOT use water to put out a LiPo fire!
Using your LiPo battery
ff Do not modify/change any part of the battery or lead. Do not remove its
protective covering. Removal or modification may damage the battery and will
invalidate any warranty claim.
ff Do not place this battery near fires or any high temperature object.
ff Do not store batteries in any type of motor vehicle.
ff Do not let the battery get wet or become submerged in any type of liquid.
ff Do not carry loose batteries in your pocket or bag as they could short-circuit
against other items.
ff If you should get electrolyte from the cells on your skin, wash thoroughly with
soap and water. If in your eyes, rinse thoroughly with water. Seek medical
assistance.
BEGINNER AND ADVANCED MODE
The Twister 400 Sport V2 transmitter features a beginner/advanced mode button.
Advanced mode with LED lit makes the Twister 400 Sport V2 more responsive and
should only be used by experienced pilots.
FLIGHT PREPARATION

To do this, enlist the help of a friend to carry the helicopter 25 metres away whilst you
operate one of the transmitter cyclic controls continuously.
WARNING: if you cannot achieve full and free movement of the helicopter at 25
metres range, it is not safe to fly the helicopter. Contact you supplier for help.
PRINCIPLES OF HELICOPTER FLIGHT
A. HOW DOES A HELICOPTER FLY?
A hovering helicopter is controlled about 4 axes; yaw, pitch, roll and height. Your
transmitter has 2 dual-axis precision stick units with two controls on each stick. The
transmitter has digital trimmers for fine tuning flight.
Mode 2 (throttle left) transmitter
▼ The left stick controls throttle (climb or descend) and tail rotor controls yaw (left
or right).
▼ The right stick operates the cyclic steering controls which are used to move the
helicopter forwards/back and to crab the helicopter left or right.
Mode 1 (throttle right) transmitter
▼ The right stick controls throttle (climb or descend) and cyclic roll control to crab
12
http://www.modelengines.com.au
the helicopter left or right.
▼ The left stick operates the tail rotor controls yaw (left or right) and cyclic fore/aft
controls which move the helicopter forwards/back.
Transmitter stick movements
Helicopters require relatively small control inputs of relatively short duration.
Do not move the sticks to extreme positions! A delicate touch is required on the
sticks. The sticks should be allowed to return to neutral almost immediately after a
control input is made. If you watch an experienced pilot hovering his helicopter, you
will see that his transmitter sticks hardly move. This is the goal you will be working
towards in this guide.
Height control
A helicopter’s rotating wings - the rotor blades, generate lift, in the same way that a
propeller generates thrust. The lift generated by the main rotor blades increases as
rotor speed rises causing the helicopter to climb. Conversely as the main rotor speed
is reduced, the helicopter descends.
This method of helicopter height control is called ‘fixed pitch’.
Height is managed using the throttle stick of your transmitter.
Push forward to climb, pull back to descend.
Yaw control
Yaw control is achieved by altering the speed of the tail rotor causing rotation to left
or right about the main rotor shaft.
When a helicopter is in the hover it can be yawed left or right.
Push the rudder stick left to yaw the nose of the helicopter to the left and push to the
right to yaw the nose right.
Your Twister 400 Sport V2 helicopter is fitted with a micro piezo gyro and electronic
mixing system which automatically helps stabilise the tail making for much easier
flight.
Steering control - fore and aft cyclic
When hovering, a brief forward push on the cyclic control stick will tilt the rotor disc
forward causing the helicopter to move off in that direction. Pull the stick back gently
to stop it. If you pull the stick back further, you start flying backwards.
Steering control - roll cyclic
When hovering, a brief right control stick movement will roll the rotor disc to the right
and the helicopter will start moving to the right. By briefly moving the stick to the left
any right drift or movement will be arrested or reduced.
Mastering the hover
Both experienced model and full-size helicopter pilots in the hover will gently ‘nudge’
the cyclic controls automatically in order to keep their helicopter in one spot and
prevent it from moving away from that spot.
A large part of the initial learning phase in helicopter flight is about mastering the
cyclic controls and learning to hover. Control commands will become ‘instinctive’
when you have ‘mastered’ the hover.
Twister 400 Sport V2 Instruction Manual
13
LEARNING TO FLY
A. THROTTLE CONTROL
If you have never flown an R/C helicopter before, we recommend learning to fly in
Beginner Mode before progressing to Advanced Mode.
▼ 1. Gently increase the throttle by pushing the throttle stick slowly up towards the
top of the transmitter. The main rotor blades will start to spin.
▼ 2. Keep advancing the throttle stick until the helicopter leaves the ground.
▼ 3. To begin with, move the throttle stick up and down in very small increments to
find the correct amount of throttle required to keep the helicopter at a constant
height.
▼ 4. If you get into trouble or lose orientation, slowly move the throttle stick to its
lowest position and the helicopter rotors will slow causing the helicopter to
descend. This gives you a chance to analyse what went wrong and try again—a
much better option than fighting the helicopter into the wall or the furniture!
NB It is perfectly normal for a helicopter to want to drift left/right/forwards/backwards
as it becomes light on the skids. The art of helicopter flying is to anticipate the
heli’s next movement and to nudge the cyclic control stick(s) lightly to correct
and to throttle back when your brain cannot keep up. The following section F.
TRIMMING THE HELICOPTER describes how you use the digital trimmers to
achieve this.
B. LEFT/RIGHT ROTATION (YAW)
▼ 1. Now that you have helicopter height under reasonable control you can learn to
rotate by using the yaw control.
▼ 2. To make the nose turn to the left, move the yaw stick to the left. Centre the stick
to stop the helicopter rotating to the left.
▼ 3. To make the nose turn to the right, move the yaw stick to the right. Centre the
stick to stop the helicopter turning to the right.
Yaw left
- Rotate nose to the Left
14
Yaw right
- Rotate nose to the Right
http://www.modelengines.com.au
C. FORE/AFT CYCLIC CONTROL
▼ 1. Once you have become adept at hovering and yawing you can try moving the
heli around the room using the fore/aft cyclic control.
Move the fore/aft stick forward to make the helicopter move forwards. Centre
the stick to stop the helicopter moving forwards.
▼ 2. Move the stick backwards, or towards you to make the helicopter move
backwards. Centre the stick to stop the helicopter moving backwards.
Forwards Fore cyclic
Backwards Aft cyclic
D. LEFT/RIGHT CYCLIC CONTROLS
▼ 1. Now using the left/right cyclic stick, move the stick left to make the helicopter
crab to the left. Centre the stick to stop the helicopter crabbing to the left.
▼ 2. Move the stick right to make the helicopter crab to the right. Centre the stick to
stop the helicopter crabbing to the right.
Crab to the Left - Left cyclic
Crab to the Right - Right cyclic
▼ 3. As you get more confident, you can combine movements at the same time to
fly circles, figure eights, climbing and descending circles, nose in flying and
precision landings on objects. The possibilities are endless. ENJOY!
▼ 4. When you have finished flying, turn off the helicopter FIRST, then the transmitter.
Twister 400 Sport V2 Instruction Manual

F. TRIMMING THE HELICOPTER (MODE 1)
The model should be stable and centred in the hover to produce the best flight
performance. If you find that your model has a tendency to drift out of the hover then
you can use the digital transmitter trims to correct it.
The transmitter features digital trims.
Throttle trim
Yaw trim
If the main rotor blades are rotating when you plug in the battery
but no throttle is applied, decrease the throttle trim by pressing
down on the trim slider.
If the rotor blades do not start to rotate when you raise the
throttle stick, increase the throttle trim by pressing up on the
trim slider.
If the model rotates to the left or the right press the yaw trim
slider in the opposite direction to correct it, e.g., If the model
rotates left, press the trim slider right, until the model is centred.
Fore/aft cyclic trim
If the model drifts forwards or backwards press the trim slider
in the opposite direction to correct it, e.g., If the model drifts
forwards, press the trim slider backwards (aft) trim until the
model is centred.
Left/right cyclic trim
If the model rolls to the left or right, press the trim slider to
correct it, e.g. If the model drifts to the left, press the trim slider
to the right, until the model is centred.
16
http://www.modelengines.com.au
G. TRIMMING THE HELICOPTER (MODE 2)
The model should be stable and centred in the hover to produce the best flight
performance. If you find that your model has a tendency to drift out of the hover then
you can use the trim buttons detailed on page 5 to correct it. The transmitter features
digital trims.
Throttle trim
If the main rotor blades are rotating when you plug in the battery
but no throttle is applied, decrease the throttle trim by pressing
down on the trim slider.
If the rotor blades do not start to rotate when you raise the
throttle stick, increase the throttle trim by pressing up on the
trim slider.
Yaw trim
If the model rotates to the left or the right press the yaw trim
slider in the opposite direction to correct it, e.g., If the model
rotates left, press the trim slider right, until the model is centred.
Fore/aft cyclic trim
If the model drifts forwards or backwards press the trim slider
in the opposite direction to correct it, e.g., If the model drifts
forwards, press the trim slider backwards (aft) trim until the
model is centred.
Left/right cyclic trim
If the model rolls to the left or right, press the trim slider to
correct it, e.g., If the model drifts to the left, press the trim slider
to the right, until the model is centred.
Twister 400 Sport V2 Instruction Manual

BINDING TRANSMITTER TO RECEIVER
A working 2.4GHz transmitter and receiver (in the helicopter) have a coded or ‘bound’
relationship with each other. The setting up of this relationship is known as ‘binding’.
In a ‘bound’ transmitter/receiver relationship the receiver (and therefore the
helicopter it is in) is bound to your transmitter and can only respond to signals
received from that transmitter. It will not respond to any other device or transmitter.
BINDING YOUR HELICOPTER
▼ 1. Make sure the throttle is in the lowest position, that is, throttle stick towards you,
then switch on the transmitter.
▼ 2. Connect helicopter battery and place on a flat surface, then switch on the
helicopter.
▼ 3. Wait for at least 5 seconds after switching on the helicopter.
▼ 4. Pick up the heli and hold it by the landing skids in one hand, keeping clear of the
rotors. Gently move the sticks on the transmitter side to side to confirm the heli is
responding. Your helicopter is now ready for use.
FLYING WITH OTHER TWISTER 400 PILOTS
It is possible to have up to five Twister 400 Sport V2 helicopters operating in the same
vicinity at one time.
WARNING: it is very important to turn on the heli’s one at a time (i.e. not all at once!)
Proceed as follows:
▼ 1. Turn on the first transmitter then
▼ 2. Turn on the first heli.
▼ 3. When the heli is responding correctly, turn on the second transmitter then
▼ 4. Turn on the second heli and so on…
…until up to five Twister 400 Sport V2 helicopters are ready for flight.
Double check that each transmitter is controlling one heli, then all five can be flown
together.
We wish you good luck and hope you enjoy your Twister 400 Sport V2!

LEARNING WITH TRAINING UNDERCART
TRAINING UNDERCART
If you have never flown an R/C helicopter before, we recommend learning to fly with
the included Training Undercart. This will assist you in having a successful landing
by helping you to land the helicopter upright and not break anything.
▼ 1. The training undercart consists of carbon fibre rods with balls attached, a centre
hub and cable ties.
▼ 2. Connect the components of the training undercart as shown above.
▼ 3. Attach training undercart to the helicopter using cable ties as shown above.
▼ 4. Learn to hover fairly close to the ground, 30 - 90 cm, and as soon as you can
hover 90cm off the ground for most of the battery pack, remove the training
undercarriage as your progress will now be quicker without it.
NB Again remember it is perfectly normal for a helicopter to want to drift left/right/
forwards/backwards as it becomes light on the skids. The art of helicopter flying
is to anticipate the heli’s next movement and to nudge the cyclic control stick(s)
lightly to correct and to throttle back when your brain cannot keep up. If you
get into trouble, gently lower the throttle and land the heli, the training undercart
will help stop the helicopter land upright so that after a few short breaths you
can have another go, usually without having to repair the helicopter.
