• Double sided adhesive Tape
• 2mm Hex Screwdriver
• 8mm Spanner
• 15mm Heat shrink Tubing (20 cm length)
• Male Futaba Servo type plug (with approximately 5cm of positive and negative wires connected)
The following instructions assume that you are using Sky-Hero components (Camera, VTX and Radio
equipment), however towards the end of the manual there is also some basic information over the use
of alternative equipment
If you are using the Sky-Hero supplied Camera, then we recommend that you either solder the Camera’s
black and red wires directly to the 5v filtered output of the PDB or you can remove the yellow cable
from the Camera’s Servo type connector then use the Camera’s servo type connector to connect to the
M6 port on the CC3D.
If you are using your own camera, you should choose an appropriate power source, based on the voltage
and current requirements of your camera. If you use the Camera output from the PDB, check that the
Lipo battery voltage is not higher than your camera’s maximum input voltage.
NOTE: if you use a 4S Lipo and the FX795T-2 or FX795T-6 (200 / 600mW) VTX,
we recommend to use a 12v Voltage Regulator between main board and VTX

The Yellow video out cable can then be soldered or connected to the VTX video input cable.
If you are using the Sky-Hero VTX, and you do not want to do any soldering, you can cover the connector
from the camera in heat shrink tubing and insert it into the VTX connector
(connecting to the yellow wire pin)
Connect the Camera’s “Power in” connector to the CC3D M6 port, ensuring that the black wire is at
the bottom
11
CAMERA SETUP
In order to make fine adjustments to your camera angle, it may be necessary to slightly ream out (deepen
the size of) the grooves in the adjustable lower camera plate (this can be done using a small file or drill)
°
45
30°
37,5°
45°
NOTE: You can remove the camera at any point to adjust its position by slightly unscrewing the two
bolts holding the curved bracket above the camera
Using double sided adhesive tape, position the CC3D flight controller in the middle of the upper frame
and 10mm back from the edge of the 2nd hole in the upper frame and connect the 4 wire (Black, Red,
Blue and Yellow) CC3D cable to the “Main Port” of the CC3D
NOTE: with the CC3D label facing upwards the black wire of the connector should be on the left side
of the main port as you push it in.
12
Next step is to use double sided adhesive tape to position the Link9 Radio Receiver behind the CC3D
Flight Controller as shown in diagram below.
The SBus Port is horizontal port in bottom right corner of the image below and left to right the pins are;
signal, positive and negative.
Connect the Black, Red and Yellow wires from the CC3D “Main Port” to the SBus port of the Receiver,
in the sequence shown above (Yellow = Signal, Red = Positive, Black = Negative)
Now you should fix the VTX in place (as shown below) using double sided adhesive tape
To avoid potential damage to your VTX you should attach the antenna to it now, because if you connect
power to the VTX without the antenna in place – the VTX can be permanently damaged. With the
antenna in place, connect the VTX Power lead to the red plug at the front of the Anakin Club Racer.
13
CHANGING YOUR VTX OUTPUT POWER
FROM 25mW – 200mW
The Sky-Hero VTX is cable of operating in 2 power modes, either 25mW or 200mW. By default the
output power is set to 25mW, but to increase it to 200mW you need to cut the small wire shown in the
2 images below. (To reset it to 25mW simply reconnect/resolder the wire)
2
Changing the VTX channel is done by pressing on the small button.
If you press and hold the button for a couple of seconds it changes the VTX Band (A-E).
NOTE: if you use a 4S Lipo and the FX795T-2 or
FX795T-6 (200 / 600mW) VTX, we recommend to
use a 12v Voltage Regulator between main board and
VTX

PAIRING YOUR SKY-HERO LINK9 RADIO
AND TRANSMITTER
Ensure that you have removed your propellers and that your VTX antenna is in place. Switch on your
Link9 Radio (if you already have another aircraft setup on your Radio, you may need to select a new
model within the Transmitter menu).
Connect a 3-4S battery to the Club Racer and wait about 5 seconds then press the Bind button on
the side of the Link9 Radio Receiver and hold it in for a couple of seconds until its LED starts to flash
rapidly
When it stops flashing, it is bound with your Transmitter and on the radio Transmitter screen you will see
that the signal strength is now indicated with a number of bars
T
If the Receiver LED is showing RED, then Push the bind button twice (in quick succession) and the
Receiver LED will blink temporarily before changing to a solid, combined pink+blue “purple” colour,
meaning that the receiver is now correctly configured in SBus mode. You can now disconnect your
battery
15
CC3D FLIGHT CONTROLLER SETUP USING
OPEN PILOT GCS SOFTWARE
WARNING! Make sure you have removed your propellers before starting this section!
This instruction is for setting up the CC3D flight controller that comes with your Club Racer ARF with
the Link9 Radio/Receiver and using the OpenPilot GCS software for the Microsoft Windows platform.
If you are not using the Sky-Hero Link 9 radio with its receiver go to the section «USING ALTERNATIVE
RADIOS & RECEIVERS»
Ensure that you downloaded and installed a copy of the OpenPilot GCS v15.05.02 software
Ensure your Lipo battery is NOT connected at this point and that the OpenPilot software is NOT running
on your computer.
Connect your Micro USB Cable to the CC3D “USB” port and the other end to your computer.
You may have to wait up to a couple of minutes for your computer to recognise the CC3D device (and in
some cases install the necessary driver). If you want to check that the CC3D device has been recognised
by your computer, you can look in Windows Control Panel under Devices and you should see a
“CopterControl Virtual COM Port” listed under the “Ports” category (Note: the COMxx number will
generally change each time you connect the CC3D)
Normally the light on the CC3D will flash very fast initially, then it will start flashing slower.
Once it is flashing slower it is ok to start the software
1. Open the OpenPilot software and if you see a pop up message warning the GCS does not match your
firmware, click “Ok”

where it will not be subject to any movement or
vibration, then Click “Calculate” (and ensure the
CC3D is not moved until the calibration process is
completed), then Click Next
13. On the ESC Calibration Procedure Screen,
double check that your battery is not connected
and no propellers are attached, then tick the 3
boxes and Click Start
14. When the screen changes (as shown below)
connect your battery, wait for the multi-tone
calibration beeps, then Click the “Stop” button
Wait for more multi-tone beeps, then you can
disconnect your battery and Click Next
In the next step we will apply power to spin the motors, so ensure that your motors are clear of anything
that could get wrapped around them or cause a danger to yourself. Make sure your propellers are not
installed.
19
15. On the Output Calibration Screen, Click Next
and connect your Lipo battery
16. To find the neutral rate (slowest smooth
rotation speed) of each motor, Click “Start” and
then move the slider to the right until the motor
starts to turn, adjust the slider left or right until
you reach the slowest speed at which the motor’s
rotation is smooth and constant.
17. Click Stop.
Once the first motor is calibrated, click “Next”,
then do the same procedure for the three other
motors.
Click “Next” to continue. Disconnect the battery.
18. On the Initial Tuning screen, Click Next

19. On the Configuration ready to save screen,
Click Save, then Click Finish.
21
TRANSMITTER SETUP WIZARD
Now it’s time to calibrate the radio. Turn your radio transmitter on, ensure that you do not have
your propellers attached to the Anakin Club Racer and then connect the Lipo Battery.
- If your computer is still connected via the usb lead to the CC3D then go to step 2 below
- If your micro usb lead is not already connected between the CC3D’s usb port and your computer – you
should ensure that the Open Pilot software is not running, and then re-connect it the usb lead. Wait a
couple of minutes for the CC3D board to be recognised then re-open the Open Pilot software. Go to
step 1 below.
Wait a couple of minutes for the CC3D board to be recognised (the light on the CC3D stops flashing
rapidly), then re-open
1. On the configuration tab (bottom of OpenPilot
Screen), click the “Input” tab on the left and then
click on “Start Transmitter Setup Wizard“
3. On the Transmitter Type screen, ensure that
“Acro” is selected and Click Next
2. On the following screen, Click Next
4. On the Transmitter Mode Screen, Select the
Mode related to your Transmitter setup (in this
example we have selected “Mode 2”), Click Next
22
5. On the Input Channel Configuration Screen,
follow the instructions to configure the controls:
Move the Throttle stick up or down as shown in
the Open Pilot screen
Move the Roll stick left or right as shown
Move the Pitch stick up or down as shown
Move the Rudder stick left or right
Move switch C fully up and down a couple of
times to configure the Flight Mode Switch
For the Accessory0,1 and 2 switches, just click
Next 3 times (no need to move any switches on
your Transmitter, unless you plan to configure a
CC3D function on one of these switches)
6. Now you need to move the 2 flight control
sticks to their maximum position in all directions
(including all corner positions), when you have
finished – Click Next
7. Now you need to verify that when you move
a control on the Transmitter, the exact same
movement is reflected on screen.
(if any movements are in acting in reverse, tick
the appropriate box to correct it).
When all movements are working correctly, Click
Next
23
8. When the screen below appears, center your
control sticks, then Click Next
9. The final step in the Wizard process is to click on
the Arming Settings Tab at the top of the screen
and decide on the method you would like to use
“Arm” the Club Racer.
The Arming process is designed to help avoid that your Club Racer’s motors start turning by accident.
NOTE: the Throttle stick must always be at its lowest position in order for the arming process to work.
In the previous screen shot “Pitch Forward” has been chosen as the arming method, this means that if
your Transmitter is configured for Mode 2 use, then you must have the left stick in its lowest position
and you push forward on the right stick for a few seconds.
You can also choose how long the Club Racer remains “Armed” by changing the “Arming Timeout” value
from its default value of 30 seconds (make sure that you Save your settings if you change this value)
10. Click the “Attitude” tab on the left of the
OpenPilot Screen, and make sure you put “180”
into the “Roll” setting. Then Click the Save button.
11. Click on the Input tab on the left and adjust
the “Min”, “Neutral” and Max values for “Chan 5” to
match the screen below. Then Click the Save button
The change in step 10 above, is very important and failing to do so, will make your Anakin Club Racer
impossible to fly as the controls will appear to operate in reverse. (In order to have optimal cable
connections, the CC3D is actually mounted in reverse with its front pointing to the rear)
PLEASE DO NOT MODIFY THESE CC3D SETTINGS UNLESS YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH CC3D
TUNING AND YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE DOING. MISCONFIGURATION OF
THE CC3D CONTROLLER MAY CAUSE HARDWARE ISSUES WHICH CAN NOT BE REPAIRED
BY THE END USER AND WOULD ALSO VOID YOUR SKY-HERO WARRANTY
Exit (close down) the Open Pilot Software (If prompted to Save your configuration, then Click the Save
button). Disconnect the battery from your Anakin Club Racer, disconnect the USB cable from the CC3D
and your switch off your Radio Transmitter
24
TESTING YOUR ANAKIN CLUB RACER ARMING
PROCESS WORKS
Ensure that your propellers are not yet connected to your Anakin Club Racer, Insert your Battery into the
battery bay and secure tightly with a strap. Turn on your Radio Transmitter. Make sure that your Anakin
Club Racer is in a safe position with nothing close by that could be damaged when you start the motors.
Ensure that your throttle stick is in the lowest position, Connect the Anakin Club Racer battery, then
push the stick, ensure that your throttle stick is in the lowest position and then push the stick which you
have configured earlier to arm your Anakin Club Racer.
TROUBLE SHOOTING
If your Anakin Club Racer will not respond to your “Arming” start sequence, then you should re-connect
the usb cable, restart the OpenPilot software and check that on the Configuration -> Input -> Arming
Settings screen, a valid option has been selected and click the Save button.
If you find that any motors are “twitching” or turning when you have not yet initiated your Arming
sequence, this could indicate one of several things:
1. ESC has not been properly calibrated during the OpenPilot calibration process
(see “Manually re-calibrating your ESCs” below)
2. Faulty motor (try replacing the motor)
3. Faulty ESC (try replacing the ESC)
4. Bad soldering connection between your motor and its ESC or ESC and PDB
(resolder the connections)
5. Motor mount screws are too long and have been screwed too far into the base of your motors
(use correct length screws with a new motor)
25
MANUALLY RE-CALIBRATING YOUR ESCS
1. Ensure that propellers are not attached and that your Anakin Club Racer is in a safe position where
spinning the motors will not cause any danger
2. Ensure that the OpenPilot software is not
running on your computer, connect the USB cable
between the CC3D and your computer, wait a
few moments for your computer to recognise
the connection and then open the OpenPilot
software. Make sure that your battery is not
connected at this point
In the OpenPilot software Select the Configuration
Tab at the bottom of the screen, then click on
“OutPut” on the left
3. Use the diagram below to identify which motor/
ESCs are not working correctly
4. For the 1st of the motors you have identified,
in OpenPilot move the Red slider for that channel
to the rightmost position
• In the example screen below, we assume that
motors/ESCs 1 is not working correctly and
the screen shows the associated change to the
OpenPilot screen
5. Click the “Test Outputs” box at the bottom left
of the screen (to put a tick in it) and acknowledge
the warning message
6. Connect your battery. It is possible that some motors will start spinning (this is ok)
You will hear several initialisation tones from the motor you are correcting, when these stop – press the
“Home” button on your keyboard (Fn + left arrow on MAC computer). This will move the red slider to
the leftmost position
26
7. Click the “Test Outputs” box (to remove the tick
from it) and acknowledge the message about
saving neutral settings.
Remove the battery, Click the Save button and
then re-connect the battery
Click the “Test Outputs” box (to put the tick back
in it) and once again acknowledge the message
about saving neutral settings.
9. Remove the tick out of Test Outputs (all motors
will stop)
Acknowledge the message about saving your
Neutral settings and Click Save
8. Several motors will probably now start turning,
but you need to adjust the slider for the 1st motor
until it is turning at the lowest, smooth and
constant rate
10. Now return to Step 3. Above and repeat all
steps in the process up to this point (for any other
motors which are not working correctly)
Once all motors are working correctly. Disconnect
your battery, Ensure that you have removed the
Tick from “Test outputs” and Click Save
Exit the OpenPilot Software, Disconnect your USB
lead and continue.
27
ATTACH YOUR PROPELLERS
Complete the build by attaching your propellers in accordance with the image below, paying special
attention to the writing on the propellers – the letter “R” after the size (e.g. 5 x 4.5R), indicates that the
propeller is a ClockWise (CW) turning propeller. If you do not have an “R” after the number this means it
is a CounterClockWise (CCW) turning propeller. Secure your battery in place – ready for your first flight!

section of this manual.
Check that your aircraft is ready for flight with no loose screws or fittings (pay special attention to the
propellers) insert a battery into the battery bay and use the provided strap to secure the battery in place.
Refer to and follow all safety precautions mentioned in the “Safety Advice” and “General Instructions
and Guidelines for Use” sections of this manual
Make sure that your transmitter controls are all in their correct positions and that the throttle is off.
Ensure that you always turn on your transmitter before connecting the Lipo battery power. After flying
make sure that once the motors have stopped turning, you always disconnect your aircraft battery
before turning off your Transmitter.
MOTOR ARMING AND TAKING OFF
You arm your motors by using the sequence that you recorded during the transmitter setup stage of this
manual. Make sure that the throttle control is at its lowest position and then push the other control to
the Motor Arming position.
To stop the motors, you should have the throttle stick at its lowest position and you push the other stick
in the opposite direction to the one you used to Arm the motors

USING ALTERNATIVE RADIOS & RECEIVERS
(not the SKY-HERO Link9)
Warning: If you decide to replace the OpenPilot software/firmware on the CC3D flight controller, you
should be aware that the output port configuration (what pins are used for what) as well as the motor
configuration is likely be different to the instructions in this manual and you should make sure that you
have sufficient skills and knowledge to complete the configuration, as SKY-HERO offers no support if
you erase the OpenPilot setup on the CC3D
SKY-HERO CC3D FLIGHT CONTROLLER IS ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH:
• S-BUS receivers
• JR & Spektrum Satellite receivers
• PPM receivers
Please note that PWM (Pulse With Modulation) is NOT SUPPORTED!
During the CC3D setup process, you will be asked to choose the receiver type from four options, please
choose your receiver according to the box above, (but do not choose PWM as this is not compatible
with the Anakin Club Racer ESCs) if you make the wrong choice here the receiver won’t work. Click
“Next”when done.
You will need to know exactly what kind of receiver you are using as different receivers require different
setup steps. The Anakin Club Racer’s built-in Sky-Hero CC3D supports 3 kinds of receivers:
PPM, S.BUS and DSM.
PPM (PULSE POSITION MODULATION)
A PPM signal (often referred to as a PPM stream) is basically a series of PWM signals sent one after
another on the same wire. So instead of continuously sending the information for 1 channel or servo,
the information for all servo’s or ESCs is sent in a row on the same wire. The advantage of such a PPM
signal is that only one signal wire is needed instead of all the individual wires.
For PPM receiver, the WHITE and GREY wire of the multi-coloured signal wire needs to be swapped
FIRST, then connect the GREY RED BLACK plug to the PPM output of your receiver, no other wires
need to be connected.
S.BUS
The S.Bus is another communication protocol from Futaba that can also be used on other radios like
Taranis and Radiolink. It also combines all output channel information into single servo lead. For S.Bus
receiver, use the S.Bus signal wire and connect it to the S.Bus port on the main board, there is no need
to connect the multicoloured PWM/PPM signal cable from its socket.
For PPM & S.BUS
please use black, red, yellow and blue cable.
YELLOW: Not used
BLACK: Ground
RED: +5V
BLUE: Signal
32
DSM/SPEKTRUM/JR (SATELLITE CONNECTION)
Another receiver option is the Spektrum/JR Satellite. It allows a Spektrum/JR or satellite receiver to be
connected to the CC3D.
For JR/Spektrum/DSM satellite receiver, plug the signal wire on the satellite to the DSM port on the
main board. Then swap the ORANGE and BLACK wire at any end of the plug. (see explanation on next
page)
DSM2/DSMX satellite receiver signal wire swap
For DSM/Spektrum/JR please use black, red, white cable.
Original DSM2/DSMX Satellite Receiver Wiring.
Use knife tip or similar to pull the BLACK and RED
wire out of the plug and put back in reverse order.
How it should looks after it is completed.
Whichever Receiver you decide to use, on your Radio Transmitter you will need to asign a 3 position
switch (preferably, or at least 2 position switch) to channel 5 or higher, in order to change between flight
modes.
If you are using an alternative (non Sky-Hero) VTX with your Anakin Club Racer ARF model, ensure that
you connect the yellow video out cable from the fpv camera, to your VTX «video in» channel.
Remember to connect the Antenna to your VTX before plugging in your battery!
NOTE: The Club Racer camera can only accept a voltage input of 5-22volts and requires 400mA.
