ASSEMBLY MANUAL
The real plane
Pilatus developed the next generation trainer the PC-21 to train the next
generation of military pilots.
The new PC-21 provides a low-cost and effective training platform for
pilots destined to fly jet fighters. Pilatus expanded the design and
performance envelope to take this single engine turboprop into an area that
was previously the domain of jet aircraft.
The PC-21 far surpasses all other turboprop trainers in terms of
aerodynamic performance, cockpit equipment, flexibility and ease of
maintenance. The use of state-of-the-art technologies increases both the
efficiency and quality of training.

The model
The PC-21 50E ARF scale, was designed by the 13 times Italian
Champion Sebastiano Silvestri, vice-European Champion and
F.A.I World Cup winner F3A.
This professional ARF kit is the result of Sebastiano’s long
research, experience in F3A and his passion for scale planes. This
combined with an extremely light weight structure and with many
small aerodinamical tricks give the PC-21 50E an impressive
precision and easy control at any airspeed and flight condition.
The PC-21 50E can do it all… it can start and land very easy on
grass surface and with the factory installed doors and landing
gears it looks very scale on ground and in the air.
The PC-21 50E is ready for any pattern manouvers as for
unbelievable easy knifeedge flights, loops, rolling circles, torque
rolls... and almost anything else you can dream up from a scale
plane are waiting you!
.....the only aerobatic-fun limit is your fantasy!

 Use 30% aileron differential (more up) for normal flight.

Recommended Center of Gravity
The recommended CG is
150mm
behind the leading edge of wing.
Pre-flight
Never attempt to make full throttle dives! This model have to be flown like a fullscale airplane. If the airframe goes too fast, such as in a high throttle dive, it may fail.
Throttle management is absolutely necessary.
Range test your radio



Before fly, be sure to range check your radio as manufacturer’s instruction
manual of you radio-system recommend.
Double-check all controls (aileron, elevator, rudder and throttle) move in
the correct direction.
Be sure that your motor battery pack is fully charged, as per the
instructions included with your batteries and that your radio is fully
charged as per its instructions.
Finally... have nice flights!
