Thank you for purchasing the Spirit EPP-F3P.
The Spirit ARF has super slow flight responsiveness so you can fly high-alpha
3D with authority. Its carbon fiber reinforced Spirit EPP construction provides the
solid, precise feel of a balsa profile plane without the weight. This allows you to fly
the Spirit ARF outside in windier conditions that would keep most other profile
foamies grounded. The Spirit ARF is another exciting addition to TECH ONE's
outstanding line of electric RC aircraft and accessories.
TECH ONE uses top-quality engineering and materials in everything it makes, so
you always get the maximum level of value and fun. TECH ONE backs all of its
products with the best customer service and support in the hobby so your electric
flight experience is always a positive one.
These assembly instructions are designed to guide you through the entire
assembly process of your new airplane in the least amount of time possible. Along
the way you'll learn how to properly assemble your new airplane and also learn
tips that will help you in the future. We have listed some of our recommendations
below. Please read through them before beginning assembly.
An R/C aircraft is not a toy! If misused, it can cause seriousbodily harm and
damage to property. Fly only in open areas,preferably AMA (Academy of
Model Aeronautics) approvedflying sites, following all instructions included
with your radio.Always assume the electric motor can come on at any time
souse extreme caution.Before beginning assembly of your Piaget EPP, we
strongly s uggest that you read through this instruction manual so you
canbecome familiar with the parts and the assembly sequence.Assemble the
kit according to the sequence provided in the instruction manual. Do not
attempt to modify or change the kit design as doing so could adversely
change the models flying characteristics.

Motor Thrust
To ensure great flight performance and to be able
to trim your airplane properly, it is critical that you
adjust the motor thrust as described. We suggest
that you add 2 degrees of down-thrust and 1
degrees of right-thrust. This can be achieved by
adding a washer or two behind the top and right
side of the motor (between the motor and the
firewall). When set properly, the trim for the
elevator and the rudder should be neutral. Finetune the down-thrust and right-thrust until this trim
is achieved.
Balance Point
The Center of Gravity (C/G or Balance Point) is 3.54” (90mm)
from the leading edge of the wing, measured at the center of
the wing.
WARNING For test flying and general sport flying, we suggest
you balance the airplane at the C/G recommended above. For
3D flying, you may want to experiment moving the C/G back in
small increments until you're satisfied with the result.
Control throws
Sport Flying
Ailerons: (28mm)1.10" Up and Down
Elevator: (32mm)1.26"Up and Down
Rudder: (44mm)1.73"Right and Left
3D Flying

Elevator: (73mm-97mm)1.42"3.82-" Up and Down
Rudder: (100mm-133mm)3.94"-5.24"Right and Left
The control throws are measured from the widest
point of the control surfaces
Sport Flying
Ailerons: 20%
Elevator: 20%
Rudder: 20%
3D Flying
Ailerons: 45% - 55%
Elevator: 45% - 60%
Rudder: 45% - 60%
Exponential softens the response of the control
surfaces around neutral stick. This makes the airplane
easier to control while using such large control throws.
The Exponential values shown are given as a percent.
Please note that different brands of radio control
systems may call for + or - Expo. Please check your
transmitter's owners manual for more info.
Seek Assistance
If you are new to R/C we suggest you find an experienced pilot to check out your aircraft and help you with
the first few flights.This will help prevent damage to your model and will speed up the learning process
and making your R/C experience all the more enjoyable. You can contact local R/C clubs or your dealer
to obtain the names of experienced R/C pilots who would be willingto help you with your first few flights.
Although this is an ARF (Almost-Ready-to-Fly) kit, it does have some construction features that can be
challenging to the less experienced modeler. If you encounter difficulty in any construction sequence,
please feel free to contact one of our technicians, we stand ready to provide any assistance we can.
