HELICOPTER FLIGHT ADJUSTMENTS SAFETY PRECAUTIONS If your helicopter uncontrollably rotates you may need to adjust the trim controls (see below). IMPORTANT: ALWAYS DISCONNECT CHARGER CORD AFTER CHARGING. NEVER LEAVE CHARGER CONNECTED TO HELICOPTER OVERNIGHT OR FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME. O P T S U E A T O PER T O O F 0 6 1 ELESS RANGE REMOTE CONTROL: When flying your Wasp with other helicopters, be sure each device operates on different frequencies to avoid interruptions in flight or performance. W IRE HELICOPTER WARNING: The helicopter blades revolve at high speeds and can cause damage to the user or spectators. Stand away from the helicopter to reduce the risk of getting into the flight path. Warn spectators that you will be flying your helicopter so that they are aware of its position. Before flight, inspect the rotor blades to make certain that the blades are securely fastened to the helicopter. When the battery charge runs low, the helicopter may have difficulty taking off or reaching a normal height. If helicopter rotates left adjust the trimmer to the right. Trim Controls If helicopter rotates right adjust the trimmer to the left. WARNING! • Choking/Cutting Hazard. Small Parts/Sharp Rotor Blades. • Keep hands, hair and loose clothing away from the propeller when the power switch is turned to the ON position. • Turn off the transmitter and helicopter power switches when not in use. • The remote charger is built specifically for the helicopters Li-Poly battery. Do not use it to charge any other battery. • Use a new alkaline battery for maximum performance of the controller. • Parental supervision recommended for flight. • Do not fly your helicopter if the rotor is damaged or broken, as this may cause serious injury. • Do not make the helicopter crash into anything in the air of on the ground. doing so may severely damage the helicpter or reduce it’s life. • If your helicopter becomes damaged, please have it repaired or replaced immediately.

Below is a list of basic flight functions on your wireless remote and how they will effect your helicopter. While learning to fly your helicopter, it is best to start with a large open area until you get used to the basic controls. As you master flying the helicopter you can move to more advanced maneuvering. Stabilizer Power Switch Charging Socket Landing Gear Main Rotor Blades Tail Rotor LED Lights CHARGING THE HELICOPTER 1. Turn the power switch to the Off position 2. Insert the charger plug of the AC adapter (included) into the charger socket and plug the adapter in a wall socket. 3. The LED light will be off while charging. When charging is complete, the LED will turn on. 4. Do not charge for more than 45 minutes. Do not over-charge. 5. Keep battery temperature under 45ºC/113º F while charging to prevent damage. This manual contains important updates. Please discard the manual that is included in the box with your Wasp and use this manual. Move the throttle control up to increase the speed of the main rotor and the helicopter will rise up. REMOTE DIAGRAM Below is a basic list of features on the wireless remote control. Power Indicator FLIGHT TIPS • • • • Fly only in warm weather with no wind Do not fly your helicopter in bad weather or extreme temperatures Do not fly in strong winds or extreme weather such as thunder, lightning, rain snow or ice storm. It is recommended that you operate the helicopter in a wide outdoor space. Allow at least a 10-foot radius range. • The helicopter is designed for indoor or outdoor use. Never pilot the helicopter near buildings, power lines, people, animals, vehicles, homes, trees or other large objects nearby. • Make sure you are not wearing any loose or long hanging clothing. • Parental guidance or adult supervision is suggested at all times. • If you are flying helicopter with others, make sure all spectators are behind you. * Wireless range up to 160 feet. Environmental conditions may cause variations. Move the throttle control down to decrease the speed of the main rotor and the helicopter will descend. Throttle Control Direction Control Power ON/OFF Trim Control FLIGHT PREPARATION 1. Pull out the controller’s antenna 2. Turn on the controllers power switch, the red LED light indicates power is on. 3. Turn on the Wasp’s power switch and place on the ground in an open area you intend to fly. 4. Make sure you and the controller are at least 10 feet away from the helicopter before operating. 5. Visually confirm the fly area is free from all obstacles, people and animals and it is safe to fly without injury. Instructions fold inward NOTE: When flying your Wasp with other helicopters, be sure each device operates on different frequencies to avoid interruptions in flight or performance. Move the direction control left and right to change the helicopters direction from left to right. Note that the controls are reversed, to go left, press right on the thumbstick.
