Introduction
Congratulations on buying the LR-1A Pogo airplane.
You have purchased what is arguably one of the most
fun airplanes in the marketplace today. Originally
designed as a fast sport flyer to bring an adrenaline
rush to the mid to advanced pilots, the project quickly
advanced to an even greater purpose. Working with
legendary designer Jerry Small we developed the
airplane into the standard for the upcoming Electric
Formula One racing class from the NMPRA (National
Miniature Pylon Racing Association).
Jerry designed a unique cowl system that includes all
the graceful curves of the front of the fuselage into one
piece that stretches back to the mid canopy point. This
allows for very easy maintenance, easy mounting of
equipment, and great cooling for the EP power system.
We also elected to use mini servos throughout to save
weight and expense; for the same reasons there is only
one aileron servo.
Power for your airplane can be anything from our
Power 15 motor on a 3S setup and a 10 x 10E prop
(prop clearance limits anything longer) to a full blown
race setup with our new Power 25 1250Kv on 4S and
an 8 x 8E prop turning about 15,000 rpm. The sport
setup will put you in the 80 mph range while the race
setup has been clocked at about 115 mph.

2mm x 12mm sheet metal screws to secure the
mount to the wing.
3. Position the aileron servo mount on the wing.
Align the opening in the mount with the opening in
the wing. Use low-tack tape to hold the mount to
the wing.

5. Place 2–3 drops of thin CA in each hole to
harden the surrounding wood. This harder surface
makes the screws more secure when installed.



11. Place the servo back into the mount. Use a
#1 Phillips screwdriver to install the four screws
included with the servo to secure the aileron servo
in position.
8. Place the aileron servo in the mount with the
output of the servo facing the leading edge of the
wing. Use a felt-tipped pen to transfer the locations
for the servo mounting screws onto the mount.
7. Follow the instructions provided with the servo to
install the rubber grommets and brass eyelets in the
servo mounting tabs.
When cutting the covering make sure not to cut into
the underlying wood and weaken the underlying
structure. Another option is to use a soldering
iron or hot knife to melt the covering, rather than
cutting, to avoid damaging the stabilizer.
10. Place 2–3 drops of thin CA in each hole to
harden the surrounding wood. This harder surface
makes the screws more secure when installed.
Install the rubber grommets and eyelets in the
rudder and elevator servos at this time as well.

12. Use the radio system to center the aileron
servo. Install the servo horn so it is perpendicular to
the servo center line as shown. The servo horn has
an odd number of splines, so rotate it until the arms
are aligned, rather than using the sub-trim function
from the radio.
 14. Slide a silicone keeper on the metal clevis.
Thread the nut on the 43/4-inch (120mm) linkage
wire back so the metal clevis can be installed.
The threads on the linkage should just be visible
between the forks of the clevis.
 18. Use needle nose pliers to bend the pushrod
wire 90-degrees at the mark made in the previous
step.
 20. Insert the linkage wire into the appropriate
hole in the servo horn for your particular flying
application.
 19. Use side cutters to trim the wire 3/8-inch
(10mm) from the bend as shown.
 21. Secure the linkage to the servo horn using a
nylon pushrod keeper. Slide the keeper on the bend
of the wire under the horn, then use pliers to snap
the rear portion of the keeper onto the linkage
wire.
 16. Use a flat blade screwdriver to open the forks
of the clevis enough to connect it to the aileron
control horn.

22. Repeat Steps 14 through 21 to install the
remaining linkage.

23. Remove the low-tack tape from the ailerons.
Use the radio to check the operation of the
ailerons. Adjust the clevises if necessary so both
ailerons are centered when the servo is centered.
Use pliers to tighten the nut against the clevis to
prevent the clevis from changing positions in flight.
Slide the silicone keepers over the forks of the clevis
to keep them from accidentally opening in flight.

24. Disconnect the power and servo from the
receiver and turn the transmitter off at this time.
When installing the aileron linkage there are two
locations we suggest. One is for racing, making
the aircraft smoother and easier to control.
The other position is for general sport flying
which makes the aircraft more responsive.

10
13. Remove the servo horn from the servo. Use
side cutters to remove any unused arm from the
horn. Use a pin vise and 5/64-inch (2mm) drill
bit to enlarge the appropriate holes in the horn as
shown.
 15. Use a piece of low-tack tape to keep the
aileron centered when installing the linkage.
 17. Use a felt-tipped pen to mark the linkage wire
where it crosses the appropriate hole in the servo
horn.

Preflight
Check Your Radio
Before going to the field, be sure your batteries are
fully charged per your radio’s instructions. Charge
the transmitter and motor battery for your airplane.
Use the recommended charger supplied with your
particular radio system, following the instructions
provided with the radio. In most cases, the radio
should be charged the night before going out flying.
Before each flying session, be sure to range check your
radio. See your radio manual for the recommended
range and instructions for your radio system. Each
radio manufacturer specifies different procedures for
their radio systems. Next, run the motor. With the
model securely anchored, check the range again.
The range test should not be significantly affected. If
it is, don’t attempt to fly! Have your radio equipment
checked out by the manufacturer.
Double-check that all controls (aileron, elevator, rudder
and throttle) move in the correct direction.
Check the radio installation and make sure all the
control surfaces are moving correctly (i.e., the correct
direction and with the recommended throws).
Check all the control horns, servo horns, and clevises
to make sure they are secure and in good condition.
Flying Your LR-1A Pogo 15e
Power 15 Sport Setup
If you followed the suggestions for the sport setup,
you’ll have adequate control throws to do just about
any aerobatic maneuver you want from an airplane
that is designed to fly fast. Balance the airplane at the
23/8 inches (60mm) mark to start with and then you
can adjust fore and aft from there by moving the motor
battery. The initial CG will provide a very solid feeling
airplane that will readily stall with full up elevator
which gives good control for landings.
Take-off
Use care with a 10-inch propeller mounted, especially
off the grass. A smooth application of throttle will result
in a fairly straight takeoff run, needing a small amount
of right rudder. When the tailwheel is on the ground
(before the tail has risen) it provides good authority
against any torque-induced yaw … once the tailwheel
lifts off the ground be prepared to apply additional
right rudder to keep the airplane on a straight path. It
takes about 8–10 seconds for the airplane to gain full
speed but you don’t have to wait for this speed to have
fun. With the light wing loading you’ll find the LR-1A
to be very maneuverable and fun to fly.
Power 25 1250Kv Racing Setup
This setup is a different animal. It will provide you with
many hours of pure adrenaline (at 4 minutes or so per
flight). The size of the loops you can do will amaze
you. Balance the airplane at the 23/8 inches (60mm)
mark to start with and then you can adjust fore and
aft from there by moving the motor battery. The initial
CG will provide a very solid feeling airplane that will
readily stall with full up elevator which gives good
control for landings. We recommend you follow the
suggestions on the pushrod attachment in the manual
for the racing setup. Using the inner holes at the servo
will result in the greatest amount of torque being
delivered to the control surface. At these speeds it is
good to have a reserve of holding power and extra
torque.
Take-off
I like to set up my transmitter so almost full elevator
stick movement is required to complete a turn around a
pylon. Ailerons are set up so a complete full roll takes
2–3 seconds (the distance from one end of a racing
course to the other). I usually also set up my rudder so
that full right rudder will provide a straight takeoff run
with a wide open throttle. I also mix in a little rudder
with aileron movement (about 4%); just enough so you
can roll from right knife edge to left knife edge and
back again without gaining any altitude.
Some tips on passing your racing friends. Stay above
their racing line. There is a tremendous amount of
what we call bad air (turbulence) right behind and
below them. While it might seem cool and exciting
to execute a pass below, at these speeds there is
rarely any time to correct from turbulence before your
beloved racer is in the ground. Take heed!
Landing
With the high Kv motor and a small 8-inch propeller,
there is a ton of torque coming from your motor so be
prepared for this on your first takeoff. The airplane
will easily come off the ground at 1/2 throttle so if
you stop yourself from going full bore and not apply
full power until well airborne, your takeoffs will be
easier and a thing of beauty. Same as above, while
the tailwheel is on the ground before the tail has risen
it provides good authority against any torque-induced
yaw, but once the tailwheel lifts off the ground be
prepared to apply additional right rudder to keep
the airplane on a straight path. With an 8-inch pitch
prop it takes a full 15 seconds for the airplane to
gain full speed.
The key to going fast and maintaining your speed is to
induce the least amount of drag while you are flying
the airplane. Every time you move a flight control you
increase the drag so use very little control movement
to help with this. Get used to using a lot of stick
movement on your transmitter (on all axis’) and your
ability to make smooth corrections and fly a faster line
through the air will increase tremendously.

Daily Flight Checks
Before each flying session, and especially with a new

model, it is important to perform a range check. It
is helpful to have another person available to assist
during the range check. If you are using a Spektrum
transmitter, please refer to your transmitter’s manual for
detailed instructions on the range check process.
1. Check the battery voltage of the transmitter
battery. Do not fly below the manufacturer’s
recommended voltage. To do so can crash
your aircraft.
Safety Do’s and Don’ts for Pilots
• Check all control surfaces prior to each takeoff.
• D
o not fly your model near spectators, parking
areas or any other area that could result in injury to
people or damage of property.
• D
o not fly during adverse weather conditions. Poor
visibility can cause disorientation and loss of control
of your aircraft. Strong winds can cause similar
problems.
Landing your model is identical whether you are using
the Sport (Power 15) or Racing (Power 25) setups.

2010 Official Academy of Model
Aeronautics Safety Code
GENERAL
1. A model aircraft shall be defined as a non-humancarrying device capable of sustained flight in
the atmosphere. It shall not exceed limitations
established in this code and is intended to be used
exclusively for recreational or competition activity.
2. The maximum takeoff weight of a model aircraft,
including fuel, is 55 pounds, except for those flown
under the AMA Experimental Aircraft Rules.
3. I will abide by this Safety Code and all rules
established for the flying site I use. I will not
willfully fly my model aircraft in a reckless and/or
dangerous manner.
4. I will not fly my model aircraft in sanctioned events,
air shows, or model demonstrations until it has
been proven airworthy.
5. I will not fly my model aircraft higher than
approximately 400 feet above ground level, when
within three (3) miles of an airport without notifying
the airport operator. I will yield the right-of-way
and avoid flying in the proximity of full-scale
aircraft, utilizing a spotter when appropriate.
6. I will not fly my model aircraft unless it is identified
with my name and address, or AMA number,
inside or affixed to the outside of the model
aircraft. This does not apply to model aircraft flown
indoors.
7. I will not operate model aircraft with metal-blade
propellers or with gaseous boosts (other than
air), nor will I operate model aircraft with fuels
containing tetranitromethane or hydrazine.
38
8. I will not operate model aircraft carrying
pyrotechnic devices which explode burn, or propel
a projectile of any kind. Exceptions include Free
Flight fuses or devices that burn producing smoke
and are securely attached to the model aircraft
during flight. Rocket motors up to a G-series
size may be used, provided they remain firmly
attached to the model aircraft during flight. Model
rockets may be flown in accordance with the
National Model Rocketry Safety Code; however,
they 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 Air Show Advisory Committee
Document.
9. I will not operate my model aircraft while under
the influence of alcohol or within eight (8) hours of
having consumed alcohol.
10. I will not operate my model aircraft while using
any drug which could adversely affect my ability to
safely control my model aircraft.
11. Children under six (6) years old are only allowed
on a flightline or in a flight area as a pilot or while
under flight instruction.
12. 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.
RADIO CONTROL
1. All model flying shall be conducted in a manner to
avoid over flight of unprotected people.
2. I will have completed a successful radio equipment
ground-range check before the first flight of a new
or repaired model aircraft.
3. I will not fly my model aircraft in the presence of
spectators until I become a proficient flier, unless I
am assisted by an experienced pilot.
4. At all flying sites a line must be established,
in front of which all flying takes place. Only
personnel associated with flying the model aircraft
are allowed at or in front of the line. In the case
of airshows demonstrations straight line must be
established. An area away from the line must be
maintained for spectators. Intentional flying behind
the line is prohibited.
5. I will operate my model aircraft using only
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.
8. 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.
9. Radio-controlled night flying is limited to lowperformance model aircraft (less than 100 mph).
The model aircraft must be equipped with a lighting
system which clearly defines the aircraft’s attitude
and direction at all times.
10. The operator of a radio-controlled model aircraft
shall control it during the entire flight, maintaining
visual contact without enhancement other than by
corrective lenses that are prescribed for the pilot.
No model aircraft shall be equipped with devices
which allow it to be flown to a selected location
which is beyond the visual range of the pilot.
6. I will not knowingly operate my model aircraft
within three (3) miles of any preexisting flying site
without a frequency-management agreement. A
frequency management agreement may be an
allocation of frequencies for each site, a dayuse agreement between sites, or testing which
determines that no interference exists. A frequencymanagement agreement may exist between two
or more AMA chartered clubs, AMA clubs and
individual AMA members, or individual AMA
members. Frequency-management agreements,
including an interference test report if the
agreement indicates no interference exists, will be
signed by all parties and copies provided to AMA
Headquarters.
7. With the exception of events flown under official
AMA rules, no powered model may be flown
outdoors closer than 25 feet to any individual,
except for the pilot and located at the flightline.
