SPACE WALKER || Instruction Manual
INTRODUCTION.
Thank you for choosing the SPACE WALKER Il ARTF . The SPACE WALKER || was designed
with the intermediate/advanced sport flyerinmind. Itis a scale airplane whichis easy to fly and quick
to assemble. The airframe is conventionally built using balsa, plywood to make it stronger than the
average ARTF , yetthe design allows the aeroplane to be kept light. You will find that most of the work
has been done for you already. The motor mount has been fitted and the hinges are pre-installed
. Flying the SPACE WALKER Il is simply a joy.
This instruction manual is designed to help you build a great flying aeroplane. Please read this
manual thoroughly before starting assembly of your SPACE WALKER II. Use the parts listing below
to identify all parts.
WARNING
Please be aware that this aeroplane is not a toy and if assembled or used incorrectly it
is capable of causing injury to people or property. WHEN YOU FLY THIS AEROPLANE YOU
ASSUME ALL RISK & RESPONSIBILITY.
If you are inexperienced with basic R/C flight we strongly recommend you contact your R/C
supplier and join your local R/C Model Flying Club. R/C Model Flying Clubs offer a variety of training
procedures designed to help the new pilot on his way to successful R/C flight. They will also be able

Instruction Manual
HINGING THE AILERONS.
Note: The control surfaces, including the
ailerons, elevators, and rudder, are
O 1) Carefully remove the aileron from one of
the wing panels. Note the position of the hinges.
0 2) Remove each hinge from the wing panel
and aileron and place a T-pin in the center of
each hinge. Slide each hinge into the wing
panel until the T-pin is snug against the wing
panel. This will help ensure an equal amount
of hinge is on either side of the hinge line when
the aileron is mounted to the aileron.
O 3) Slide the wing panel on the aileron until
there is only a slight gap. The hinge is now
centered on the wing panel and aileron.
Remove the T-pins and snug the aileron
against the wing panel. A gap of 1/64" or less
should be maintained between the wing panel
and aileron.
O 4)Deflect the aileron and completely
saturate each hinge with thin C/A glue. The
ailerons front surface should lightly contact the
wing during this procedure. Ideally, when the
hinges are glued in place, a 1/64" gap or less
will be maintained throughout the lengh of the
aileron to the wing panel hinge line.
4
O 5) Turn the wing panel over and deflect the
aileron in the opposite direction from the
opposite side. Apply thin C/A glue to each
hinge, making sure that the C/A penetrates into
both the aileron and wing panel.
O 6) Using C/A remover/debonder and a
paper towel, remove any excess C/A glue that
may have accumulated on the wing or in the
aileron hinge area.
OD 7) Repeat this process with the other wing
panel, securely hinging the aileron in place.
OO 8) After both ailerons are securely hinged,
firmly grasp the wing panel and aileron to
make sure the hinges are securely glued and
cannot be pulled out. Do this by carefully
applying medium pressure, trying to separate
the aileron from the wing panel. Use caution
not to crush the wing structure.

HORIZONTAL STABILIZER.
(1) Using a ruler and a pen, locate the
centerline of the horizontal stabilizer, at the trail-
ing edge, and place a mark. Use a triangle
and extend this mark, from back to front,
across the top of the stabilizer. Also extend
this mark down the back of the trailing edge of
the stabilizer,
© 2) Using a modeling knife, carefully remove
the covering at mounting slot of horizontal sta-
bilizer ( both side of fuselage).
0 3) Slide the stabilizer into place in the pre-
cut slot in the rear of the fuselage. The stabi-
lizer should be pushed firmly against the front
of the slot.
Ol 4) With the stabilizer held firmly in place,
use a pen and draw lines onto the stabilizer
where it and the fuselage sides meet. Do this
on both the right and left sides and top and
bottom of the stabilizer.
0 5) Removethe stabilizer Using the lines
о just drew as a guide, carefully remove the
covering from between them using a model-
ing knife.
SPACE WALKER II
Instruction Manual
A When cutting through the covering to re-
move it, Cut with only enough pressure to only
cut through the covering itself. Cutting into
the balsa structure may weaken it.
0 6) When you are sure that everything is
aligned correctly, apply C/A glue to the top and
bottom of the stabilizer mounting area and to
the stabilizer mounting platform sides.
VERTICAL STABILIZER INSTALLATION
O 1) Using a modeling knife, remove the
covering from over the precut hinge slot cut
into the lower rear portion of the fuselage. This
slot accepts the lower rudder hinge.
Ol 2) Glue the vertical fin in place using as
same as techniques used to installing the hori-
zontal fin.

MOUNTING THE TAIL WHEEL.
© 1) Set the tail wheel assembly in place on
the plywood plate. The pivot point of the tail
wheel wire should be even with the rudder
hinge line and the tail wheel bracket should
be on the plywood plate.
Al 2) Using a pen, mark the locations of the
two mounting screws. Remove the tail wheel
bracket and drill 1mm pilot holes at the loca-
tions marked.
Cl 3) Secure the tail wheel bracket in place
using two 3x10mm wood screws. Be careful
not to overtighten the screws.

MOUNTING THE CONTROL CLASP
1) Align the tail wheel wire so that the wire
is parallel with the bottom of the rudder. The
control clasp has a predrilled hole through the
top of it. Slide this hole onto the tail wheel wire
while sliding the clasp over the bottom of the
rudder.
2) Using a ruler and a pen place a mark onto
the bottom of the rudder. The back edge of
the clasp should line up with this mark. You may
find it necessary to bend the tail wheel wire
down slightly so it lines up with the clasp with-
out binding.
3) While holding the clasp firmly in place,
use a pen and outline the clasp onto the rud-
der.
4) Remove the clasp, and using a model-
ing knife, remove the covering from inside the
lines you drew. Use.220 grit sandpaper and
carefully roughen the inside surface of the ny-
lon clasp.
5) Slide the clasp back into position and
carefully glue it into place using Kwik Bond Thin
C/A. Hold the clasp in place until the glue com-
pletely cures. Secure by 1 machine
screw.

BALANCING
(1) Itis cntical that your airplane be bal-
anced correctly. Improper balance will cause
your plane to lose control and crash. The cen-
ter of gravity is locate 7.5-8cm_ back from
the leading edge of the wing, measured at wing
tip. *
O2) Ifthe nose of the plane falls, the plane
is nose heavy. To correct this first move the
battery pack further back in the fuselage. If
this is not possible or does not correct it, stick
small amounts of lead weight on the fuselage
sides under the horizontal stabilizer. If the tail
of the plane falls, the plane is tail heavy. To
correct this, move the battery and receiver for-
ward orif this is not possible, stick weight onto
the firewall. When balanced correctly, the air-
plane should sit level or slightly nose down
when you lift it up with your fingers.
CONTROL THROWS.
01) We highly recommend setting up the
SPACE WALKER II using the control throws
listed at nght. We have listed control throws
for both Low Rate (initial test flying/sport fly-
ing) and High Rate (aerobatic flying).
02) Turn on the radio system, and with the
trim tabs on the transmitter in neutral, center
the control surfaces by making adjustments
to the clevises or adjustable servo connectors.
The servo arms should be centered also.
OD 3) When the elevator, rudder and aileron
control surfaces are centered, use a ruler and
check the amount of the control throw in each
surface. The control throws should be
measured at the widest point of each sur-
face!
INITIAL FLYING/SPORT FLYING
Ailerons : 3/16" up 3/16” down
Elevator : 3/8" up 3/8" down
Rudder : 1 right 1 left
AEROBATIC FLYING
|. Ailerons : 3/8" up 3/8" down
Elevator : 1” up 1” down
Rudder : — 2" right 2" left
Do not use the aerobatic settings for
initial test flying or sport flying.

SPACE WALKER |!
O 4) By moving the position of the adjust-
able control horn out from the control surface,
you will decrease the amount of throw of that
control surface. Moving the adjustable con-
trol horn toward the control surface will in-
crease the amount of throw.
FLIGHT PREPARATION.
Cl A) Check the operation and direction of
the elevator, rudder, ailerons and throttle.
0 B) Plug in your radio system per the
manufacturer's instructions and turn every-
thing on.
0 C) Check the elevator first. Pull back on
the elevator stick. The elevator halves should
move up. If it they do not, flip the servo re-
versing switch on your transmitter to change
the direction.
0 D) Check the rudder. Looking from be-
hind the airplane, move the rudder stick to the
right. The rudder should move to the right. Ifit
does not, flip the servo reversing switch on
your transmitter to change the direction.
© E)Check the throttle. Moving the throttle
stick forward should open the carburetor bar-
rel. Ifit does not, flip the servo reversing switch
on your transmitter to change the direction.
O F) From behind the airplane, look at the
aileron on the right wing half. Move the aileron
stick to the right. The right aileron should move
up and the other aileron should move down. If
it does not, flip the servo reversing switch on
your transmitter to change the direction.
PREFLIGHT CHECK.
01) Completely charge your transmitter
and receiver batteries before your first day of
flying.
002) Check every bolt and every glue joint
in the SPACE WALKER Il to ensure that ev-
erything is tight and well bonded.
O3) Double check the balance of the air-
plane. Do this with the fuel tank empty.
O04) Check the control surfaces. All should
move in the correct direction and not bind in
any way.
16
Instruction Manual
5) If your radio transmitter is equipped
with dual rate switches double check that they
are on the low rate setting for your first few
flights.
m6) Check to ensure the control surfaces
are moving the proper amount for both low
and high rate settings.
7) Check the receiver antenna. It should
be fully extended and not coiled up inside the
fuselage.
08) Properly balance the propeller. An out
of balance propeller will cause excessive vi-
bration which could lead to engine and/or air-
frame failure.
We wish you many safe and enjoyable
flights with your SPACE WALKER II.
