Swashplate check. Pull down the throttle joystick and throttle trim to the lowest position, and push the elevator trim and aileron inching switch to the neutral position, and check whether the swashplate is in a horizontal level. 2. Swashplate adjustment: If the swashplate is not in a horizontal level, adjust via the following steps: First, loosen the swashplate pull rod (Disconnect the ball buckle with the swashplate). Second, turn the ball buckle clockwise or anticlockwise to adjust the length of the pull rod so as to make the swashplate reach level. Third, connect the ball buckle. Ball head buckle Swashplate bearing MAIN ROTOR BLADE ADJUSTMENT 1. Main rotor blade inspection. (1) Inspect whether the fixed screws of the main rotor blades are too tight or loose. Extreme tightness or loosing of the blades will result in unstable flight. (2) Inspect whether the blade tracking phenomenon will happen. Blade tracking problem will lead to unstable flight. 2. Adjustment for the main rotor blade (1) Keep the fixed screw of the main rotor blades not too tight or too loose. (2) Lengthen or shorten the ball linkage rod if the blade tracking problem is existed. The trims of the transmitter may be displaced caused during the transportation and flying. Please adjust the trim properly before you fly the model. The position of transmiter trim may changed slightly due to transportation. Please check the state of trim and adjust knot according the flying. ball connector rod fixed screw for main blades GROUND EFFECT Airplane will be influenced by the airflow when airplane is flying 30 centimeters above ground, which is called ‘ground effect’. This effect can increase the lift and also make the helicopter difficult to control in the situation. It will be difficult for the helicopter to take off and land in this situation. The best way to reduce the ‘ground effect’ is to increase the flight altitude. 9 www.art-tech.com NORMAL FLIGHT Ascending Left stick pushing up Descending Left stick pulling down Head turning left Left stick moving left Head turning right Left stick moving right Right stick pushing up Head forward Head backward Right stick pushing down Helicopter moving left Right stick moving left Helicopter moving right Right stick moving right Chart for R/C mode 2(left hand throttle) 10 www.art-tech.com INSTALLATION 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 12 21 22 23 11 65 10 24 9 8 25 7 26 27 6 28 5 29 30 4 31 3 32 2 10 1 34 42 41 40 39 38 37 36 33 35 48 47 46 45 44 43 11 www.art-tech.com INSTALLATION 56 57 55 58 54 59 53 60 52 61 51 62 50 63 49 64 1 The fixed sleeve for main shaft 18 Nut 35 Left tail blade cover 52 Servo arm 2 Upper main gear 19 Balance bar sleeve 36 LED light 53 Screw 3 Lower main gear 20 Ba lance bar ball buckle 37 LED light seat 54 Copper gear 4 Servo arm steel wire 21 Stabilizer 38 Tail blade shaft 55 Screw 5 Inner inclined tray 22 Screw 39 Tail blade 56 Motor 6 Outer inclined tray 23 Rotor head 40 Right tail blade cover 57 Servo 7 Right rotor blade 24 Inner main shaft 41 Right body 58 Link bar 1 8 Rotor head sheath 25 Outer main shaft 42 Right stabilizer 59 Link bar 2 9 Connecting sleeve 26 Linkage rod 43 Searchlight 60 Screw 10 Bearing 27 Bearing 44 Searchlight cover 61 Controlling board 11 Left rotor blade 28 Screw 45 Searchlig ht sleeve holder 62 Cont rolling board seat 12 Screw 29 Main shaft fixed sleeve 2 46 Searchlight seat 63 Battery cover 13 Main rotor ball buckle 30 Bearing 47 Canopy window 64 Undercarriage 14 Screw 31 Main gearing copper sheet 48 Screw 65 Rotor holder 15 Pull rod 32 Copper sleeve 49 Screw 16 Balance bar 33 Left stabilizer 50 Battery box 17 Copper sleeve for balance bar 34 Left body 51 Frame 12 www.art-tech.com PARTS REPLACING Swashplate assembly Tail wing assembly 2.
