Items Included With Your Model:
Transmitter (RTF Versions only)
AA batteries (4) (RTF Versions only)
Assembled aircraft
Li-Po battery (2)
Install the Transmitter Batteries
Open the rear cover of the transmitter.
Insert the four AA batteries noting the polarity of the
batteries molded into the transmitter case.
Replace the cover on the transmitter.
Charging the Flight Battery
Open the door on the transmitter to access the charger lead. Connect the lead to the flight battery making
sure the red dots are aligned.
The transmitter can be in either the ON or OFF position while charging a battery.
If the battery is charging correctly, a yellow light on the
transmitter face will light. When charging is complete,
the yellow light will go off.
Transmitter Battery Check
When charging with the power switch in the ON position, the signal that the AA transmitter batteries need to be replaced will be an audible beep. When charging with the power switch in the OFF
position, the yellow light will become dim when the AA transmitter batteries are running low.
Install the Flight Battery
Once the flight battery has charged, attach the
battery to the bottom of the fuselage as shown.
Removing the Wing
If you need access to the internal workings of
the model, the rear of the wing is secured with a
strong magnet.
To release the magnet, hold the fuselage of
the model in one hand and carefully but firmly
lift the trailing edge of the wing approx. 5mm.
Then slide the wing backwards (towards the tail)
out of its mount. Replace the wing by doing the
reverse.
MODE 1 or MODE 2?
Your Micro Boomerang is available with either a, Mode 1 transmitter (throttle on the right) or Mode
2 transmitter (throttle on the left). The best mode is the one you first learn on, it’s up to you.
(The instructions on this page relate to Mode 1 transmitters).
Binding the Model
RTF versions are shipped ready to fly. If you find the controls are not responding to the transmitter, it may be necessary to bind the radio system.
RC Ready version, you will need to bind the model to your existing eRC transmitter before the
model will respond to the transmitter. (This model will only bind to an eRC transmitter)
Use the following to bind the radio system.
1. Turn on the transmitter
2. Install the flight battery and connect the plug
3. Momentarily depress the 2 trim buttons on the throttle stick (you do
not need to hold them down)
4. The airplane will indicate that it is bound by movtng the controls
5. Check that the control surfaces are moving in the correct direction
Elevator Control
Moving the left stick to the top of the transmitter will
make the elevator move down.
In the air, this will cause the plane to dive.
Moving the stick toward the bottom of the transmitter
will make the elevator go up.
In flight this will make the model climb.
Rudder Control
Moving the right stick to the right will make the rudder
go right.
In flight this will make the model turn to the right.
Moving the stick to the left will make the rudder go left.
In flight this will make the model turn to the left.
Throttle Control
Moving the right stick to the top of the transmitter will
operate the motor. The throttle is proportional, so as you
move the throttle stick up, the speed of the motor will
increase, which increases the flying speed of the model.
We recommend flying at 1/4 to 2/3 throttle for your first
flight to learn the flying characteristics of your model.
(The instructions on this page relate to Mode 1 transmitters).
Trimming the Model
If you find that your model does not fly
straight, it may be necessary to adjust the
trim for straight and level flight.
Trimming is best done when flying at 1/2
to 2/3 power.
Rudder Trim
If the model appears to turn slightly to the
right or left, it may be required to adjust
the rudder trim.
If the model is turning to the left, press
the right rudder trim until the model flies
level.
If it is turning to the right, press the left
rudder trim.
You should only use one or two presses
at a time so the model is not overtrimmed and begins turning the opposite
direction.
Elevator Trim
If the model is climbing or diving in flight,
it may be necessary to adjust the elevator trim.
If the model is climbing, you will need to
press the down elevator trim.
If the model is diving, it will require that
you press the up elevator trim.
As with the rudder, only press the trim
once or twice until the model flies level to
avoid over- trimming.
MODE 1 or MODE 2?
Your Micro Boomerang is available with either a, Mode 1 transmitter (throttle on the right) or Mode
2 transmitter (throttle on the left). The best mode is the one you first learn on, it’s up to you.
(The instructions on this page relate to Mode 2 transmitters).

Flying Your Model
Your model has been designed for the beginner to intermediate
flyer.
Always perform a flight check to make sure all controls are operating properly before flying.
Point the model into the wind. Advance the throttle to 2/3 power
and gently “push” the model forward with the nose up slightly.
You can also take off from the ground on smooth surfaces such as
gym floors or driveways.
The Micro Boomerang can be flown fast or slow.
Cruise around at 1/4 throttle or perform loops and tight turns at
higher power settings.
To land, reduce the throttle enough to cause the model to slowly
descend.
Point the model into the wind and fly it gently to the ground.
With a little practice you will be able to perform touch and goes.
General Flying Precautions
Always make it a point to practice good flying techniques.
Choose an area large enough that you can safely maneuver your model.
Always fly your model in winds of 10kmh (5mph) or less.
Avoid flying into the sun.
Flying Area
You can fly your model indoors in an area the size of a small gymnasium, or outdoors in a similar
sized area or larger in winds less than 5 mph.
Make sure to choose an area that is clear of buildings, trees, power lines or other obstacles that
your aircraft could collide with.
Always fly your model away from crowds or spectators to avoid injury.
