INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing
our new 53” electric sbach
342. we strive to achieve the
real Quick Builded and ARF
aircraf .
It just requires the least
amout of assembly of any kit
that almost finished in
factory.To obtain the perfect
performence,both the design
and manufacturing have been
taken care with the highest
quality from any
hardware,covering ,wood and
glue in the construction as
well.By optimal weight and
reliable construction,you
construction you will
find this plane is really ideal
for 3D - Freestyle and
aerobatic.
So we hope every effort and
service
i we offer
ff will
ill make
k you
feel easy and have a wonderful
time in the pleasure of flying in
3D space.

15 Degrees on Low rate

Aileron:

After you set the given control
throws up and have a few flights under
you belt, you can change the amounts
as well as moving the CG back at 1/4"
intervals
■
Learn to use exponential of about
40 percent on your elevator to make
great landings and not over control a
highly aerobatic airplane.Use 70

Flight Preperation
Make sure you have the right model programmed into your
transmitter
■ Check the direction of each surface not and also right before
you take off .
■ Rememver nothing wrong on the ground ever improves in
the air
■ Check the air plane with the engine running and do a range
check with
■ your body between you and the plane at 100 feet.
■ Check your battery voltage after each flight in case one
servo is draining your battery
■ Recheck all screws ,horns
horns and linkages for slop after your
maiden fight and check for damage if you made a bad landing
you first time
■ Have an experienced pilot fly it for you the first time if you
have any doubts in your mind about the maiden flight
■ Take a break after y
you first flight
g and let the adrenaline
burned off by bragging to your fellow members how good it
flies.
■ Fly low and at a medium speed on your first few flight
■ Listen to your engine run and have an observer with you to
remember what you talked about during the flight or if you ger
i t trouble
into
t bl . Al
Always b
balance
l
your props, vibration
ib ti iis a kill
killer.
■ Remember nose heavy airplanes fly all the time, tail heavy
airplanes fly only once. Be on the CG!
■ Fly 3D two mistakes high in the beginning and not close to
people, planes or runways. Being a center of the runway hog
does not endear you to many modelers
modelers.
