EN
Transmitter and Receiver Binding
Binding is the process of programming the receiver to recognize the GUID
(Globally Unique Identifier) code of a single specific transmitter. You need to
‘bind’ your chosen Spektrum™ DSM2®/DSMX® technology equipped aircraft
transmitter to the receiver for proper operation.
IMPORTANT: Before binding a transmitter, read the Transmitter Setup section
of this manual to ensure that your transmitter is properly programmed for this
aircraft.
Binding Procedure
IMPORTANT: The included AR636 receiver has been programmed for
operation specifically for this aircraft. Refer to the receiver manual for correct setup if the receiver is replaced or is used in another aircraft.
Read the transmitter instructions for binding to a receiver (location of
transmitter’s Bind control). Please visit www.bindnfly.com for a complete list of compatible transmitters.
CAUTION: When using a Futaba® transmitter with a Spektrum DSM
module, you must reverse the throttle channel and rebind. Refer to your
Spektrum module manual for binding and failsafe instructions. Refer to
your Futaba transmitter manual for instructions on reversing the throttle
channel.
1.
Make sure the transmitter is powered off.
2.
Move the transmitter controls to neutral (flight controls: rudder,
elevators and ailerons) or to low positions (throttle, throttle trim).*
3.
Install a bind plug in the receiver bind port.
7.
Remove the bind plug from the bind port.
8.
Safely store the bind plug (some owners attach the bind plug to their
transmitter using two-part loops and clips).
9.
The receiver should retain the binding instructions received from the
transmitter until another binding is done.
* The throttle will not arm if the transmitter’s throttle control is not put at
the lowest position. If you encounter problems, follow the binding instructions and refer to the transmitter troubleshooting guide for other instructions. If needed, contact the appropriate Horizon Product Support office.
**Failsafe
If the receiver loses transmitter communication, the failsafe will activate.
When activated, failsafe moves the throttle channel to its preset failsafe
position (low throttle) that was set during binding. All other channels hold
their last position.
Bind Plug Installation
BIND PLUG
4. Connect the flight battery to the ESC. The ESC will produce a series
of sounds. One long tone, then 3 short tones confirm that the LVC is
set correctly for the ESC. The orange bind LED on the receiver will
begin to flash rapidly.
8
5.
Power on the transmitter while holding the transmitter bind button
or switch. Refer to your transmitter’s manual for binding.
6.
When the receiver binds to the transmitter, the orange bind light on
the receiver will turn solid and the ESC will produce a series of three
ascending tones. The tones indicate the ESC is armed, provided the
throttle stick and throttle trim are low enough to trigger arming.

Battery Installation and ESC Arming
Battery Selection
We recommend the E-flite® 3200mAh 11.1V 3S 30C Li-Po battery
(EFLB32003S30). If using a battery other than those listed, the battery should
be within the range of capacity, dimensions and weight of the E-flite Li-Po
battery packs to fit in the fuselage. Be sure the model balances at the recommended CG.
A
1. Lower the throttle and throttle trim to the lowest settings. Power on the
Transmitter, then wait 5 seconds.
2. Push the canopy latch button (A) to release the canopy and remove.
3. For added security apply the loop side (soft side) of the optional hook and
loop tape (B) to the bottom of your battery and the hook side to the battery
compartment.
4. Install fully charged battery (C) on the front edge of the battery
compartment as shown and secure using the hook and loop straps (D).
Optional
B
5. Connect the battery to the ESC (the ESC is now armed).
6. Keep the aircraft immobile and away from wind or the system will
not initialize.
• The ESC will sound a series of tones (refer to step 6 of the binding
instructions for more information).
• An LED will light on the receiver.
D
C
If the ESC sounds a continuous double beep after the flight battery is
connected, recharge or replace the battery.
7. Reinstall the canopy by inserting the front tab first and pushing down on the
back of the canopy until the latch locks.
CAUTION: Always
keep hands away from the
propeller. When armed, the
motor will turn the
propeller in response to
any throttle movement.

Center of Gravity (CG)
The CG location is measured from the leading edge of the wing at the root.
This CG location has been determined with the recommended Li-Po battery
(EFLB32003S30) installed to the front edge of the battery tray.

AS3X Control Direction Test
Aircraft
movement
This test ensures that the AS3X® control system is functioning properly.
Assemble the aircraft and bind your transmitter to the receiver before
performing this test.
AS3X Reaction
CAUTION: Keep all body parts, hair and loose clothing away from a
moving propeller, as these items could become entangled.
Pitch
1. Raise the throttle just above 25%, then lower the throttle to activate AS3X.
Ya w
Once the AS3X system is active, control surfaces may move rapidly. This is
normal. AS3X remains active until the battery is disconnected.
Roll
2. Move the entire aircraft as shown and ensure the control surfaces move in
the direction indicated in the graphic. If the control surfaces do not respond
as shown, do not fly the aircraft. Refer to the receiver manual for more
information.
Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)
When a Li-Po battery is discharged below 3V per cell, it will not hold a charge.
The ESC protects the flight battery from over-discharge using Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC). Before the battery charge decreases too much, LVC removes power
supplied to the motor. Power to the motor pulses, showing that some battery
power is reserved for flight control and safe landing.
NOTICE: Repeated flying to LVC will damage the battery.
Tip: Monitor your aircraft battery’s voltage before and after flying by using a
Li-Po Cell Voltage Checker (EFLA111, sold separately).
Disconnect and remove the Li-Po battery from the aircraft after use to prevent
trickle discharge. Charge your Li-Po battery to about half capacity before storage. During storage, make sure the battery charge does not fall below 3V per
cell. LVC does not prevent the battery from over-discharge during storage.

In Flight Trimming
During your first flight, trim the aircraft for level flight in a glide (power
off). Make small trim adjustments with your transmitter’s trim switches to
straighten the aircraft’s flight path.
3 Seconds
After adjusting trim do not touch the control sticks for 3 seconds. This allows
the receiver to learn the correct settings to optimize AS3X performance.
Failure to do so could affect flight performance.
It is normal for the aircraft to climb under power when it’s trimmed properly for
maximum glide performance.
Flying Tips and Repairs
Consult local laws and ordinances before choosing a flying location.
Range Check your Radio System
Before you fly, range check the radio system. Refer to your specific transmitter
instruction manual for range test information.
Oscillation
Once the AS3X system is active (after advancing the throttle for the first time),
you will normally see the control surfaces react to aircraft movement.
In some flight conditions you may see oscillation (the aircraft rocks back and
forth on one axis due to overcontrol). If oscillation occurs, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide for more information.
Hand Launching
When hand-launching your aircraft alone, hold the aircraft in one hand and the
transmitter in the other.
Apply about 1/2–3/4 throttle. Hold the aircraft on the underside and throw the
aircraft directly into the wind, angled slightly up (5 to 10 degrees above the
horizon). Climb to a safe altitude and check the trim. Once the trim is adjusted,
begin exploring the flight envelope of the aircraft.
Soaring
Your aircraft can ascend on thermals and other updrafts to prolong its flight
with the motor off. There are many ways to stay aloft with a sailplane, such as
ridge lifts and thermals.
A thermal is simply a column of rising warm air. Once you get your aircraft into
the air, watch your aircraft for a response to thermals. If the airplane randomly
rolls on its own, it is likely that you only flew through the edge of the thermal,
causing one side of the airplane to rise, rather than the entire airplane. Enter
the thermal by turning your aircraft directly into it, circling to stay in the center
of the thermal. Slow your forward speed by increasing up elevator trim so that
your aircraft is moving just faster than stall (minimum sink speed). Make easy
turns to find the area of highest lift (the thermal’s core).
When you find the core of lift, tighten your turns to stay near this position.
Sometimes thermals drift downwind. It is best that you search for thermals
upwind, so that you can follow a thermal downwind if it is pushed downwind.
With practice, you will find it easier to locate and anticipate the movement of
thermals. Although thermals cannot be seen, you can see dust, insects or birds
riding an updraft. Air movement of a thermal may be felt, so movement in an
otherwise calm spot may show you the location of a nearby thermal. A shift in
the wind (in a light breeze) can be airflow into a thermal.
Warning: Do not dive your Radian for prolong periods of time. Doing
so could cause the Radian to gain too much speed, and overstress of
the aircraft is possible.
Spoilers/Air Brakes
The spoiler (air brake) on this aircraft gives you increased drag without the additional lift of flaps. The spoilers (only on the upper surface of the wing) “spoil”
or decrease lift for sections of the wing and increase drag. This allows you to
descend at a steeper rate and land in smaller areas without gaining airspeed
and allows you to bleed off energy more quickly.
IMPORTANT: This aircraft has been designed so that deploying the spoilers
does not affect any other control surface. On your transmitter, no mixes are
required from the spoilers to other control surfaces.
Landing
Land into the wind. Due to the high lifting efficiency of the sailplane design,
landing requires a large landing area clear of trees, buildings and cars. While
on your downwind leg, remember that the sailplane glides much better than
other aircraft.
You may need to setup for landing lower and with a more shallow decent than
you may be used to. As you are on approach for landing, ensure that the model
is descending slowly, but also not accelerating. If the model is accelerating, it
is likely that you will overshoot your projected landing area. Deploy the spoilers
during landing to help the sailplane descend faster.
Maintain this descent and speed, and, as the model nears the ground (approximately 6 inches (15 cm)), slowly apply a small amount of up elevator. The
model should level out and fly parallel to the ground, decelerating further. Be
sure the model does not climb. As it decelerates, keep flying the model parallel
to the ground until it comes to rest gently on its belly.
NOTICE: If a crash is imminent, reduce the throttle
fully. Failure to do so could result in extra damage
to the airframe, as well as damage to the ESC and
motor.
NOTICE: Crash damage is not covered under
warranty.
Warning:
Always decrease
throttle at propeller
strike.
Repairs
Repair this aircraft using CA (cyanoacrylate adhesive)
glue or clear tape.
When parts are not repairable, see the Replacement
Parts List for ordering by item number.
For a listing of all replacement and optional parts, refer to the list at the back of
this manual.
NOTICE: Use of CA accelerant on your aircraft can damage paint. DO NOT
handle the aircraft until accelerant fully dries.
NOTICE: When you are finished flying, never leave the aircraft in direct sunlight
or in a hot, enclosed area such as a car. Doing so can damage the foam.

(c) Not fly higher than approximately 400 feet above ground level within three (3) miles of an airport, without notifying the airport operator.
(d) Not interfere with operations and traffic patterns at any airport, heliport or seaplane base except where there is a mixed use agreement.
(e) Not exceed a takeoff weight, including fuel, of 55 pounds unless in compliance with the AMA Large Model Aircraft program. (AMA
Document 520-A.)
(f) Ensure the aircraft is identified with the name and address or AMA number of the owner on the inside or affixed to the outside of the model aircraft. (This does not apply to model aircraft flown indoors).
(g) Not operate aircraft with metal-blade propellers or with gaseous boosts
except for helicopters operated under the provisions of AMA Document #555.
(h) Not operate model aircraft while under the influence of alcohol or while using any drug which could adversely affect the pilot’s ability to safely control the model.
(i) Not operate model aircraft carrying pyrotechnic devices which explode or burn, or any device which propels a projectile or drops any object that creates a hazard to persons or property.
Exceptions:
• Free Flight fuses or devices that burn producing smoke and are
securely attached to the model aircraft during flight.
• Rocket motors (using solid propellant) up to a G-series size may
be used provided they remain attached to the model during flight. Model rockets may be flown in accordance with the National Model Rocketry Safety Code but may not be launched from
model aircraft.
• Officially designated AMA Air Show Teams (AST) are authorized to
use devices and practices as defined within the Team AMA
Program Document (AMA Document #718).
(j) Not operate a turbine-powered aircraft, unless in compliance with the
AMA turbine regulations. (AMA Document #510-A).

model demonstrations unless:
(a) The aircraft, control system and pilot skills have successfully
demonstrated all maneuvers intended or anticipated prior to the
specific event.
(b) An inexperienced pilot is assisted by an experienced pilot.
B. RADIO CONTROL
1. All pilots shall avoid flying directly over unprotected people, vessels, vehicles or structures and shall avoid endangerment of life and property
of others.
2. A successful radio equipment ground-range check in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations will be completed before the first flight of a new or repaired model aircraft.
3. At all flying sites a safety line(s) must be established in front of which all flying takes place (AMA Document #706.)
(a) Only personnel associated with flying the model aircraft are allowed at or in front of the safety line.
(b) At air shows or demonstrations, a straight safety line must be
established.
(c) An area away from the safety line must be maintained for spectators.
(d) Intentional flying behind the safety line is prohibited.
4. RC model aircraft must use the radio-control frequencies currently allowed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Only individuals
properly licensed by the FCC are authorized to operate equipment on Amateur Band frequencies.
5. RC model aircraft will not operate within three (3) miles of any pre-existing flying site without a frequency-management agreement (AMA Documents #922 and #923.)
6. With the exception of events flown under official AMA Competition
Regulations, excluding takeoff and landing, no powered model may be flown outdoors closer than 25 feet to any individual, except for the pilot and the pilot’s helper(s) located at the flight line.
7. Under no circumstances may a pilot or other person touch a model aircraft in flight while it is still under power, except to divert it from striking an individual.
8. RC night flying requires a lighting system providing the pilot with a clear view of the model’s attitude and orientation at all times. Hand-held illumi-
nation systems are inadequate for night flying operations.
9. The pilot of a RC model aircraft shall:
(a) Maintain control during the entire flight, maintaining visual contact
without enhancement other than by corrective lenses prescribed for
the pilot.
(b) Fly using the assistance of a camera or First-Person View (FPV) only

(C) Fly using the assistance of autopilot or stabilization system only in
accordance with the procedures outlined in AMA Document #560.
Please see your local or regional modeling association’s guidelines for proper, safe
operation of your model aircraft.
4. When and where required by rule, helmets must be properly worn and
fastened. They must be OSHA, DOT, ANSI, SNELL or NOCSAE approved or comply with comparable standards.
