and performance battery packs. If the battery pack or other accessories have changes,
please adjust the CG position according to the content above.
PRECAUTIONS BEFORE FLIGHT
1、The DG1000 should be flown only when the wind speed is 16 mph or less. If the wind is
calm or very light, the DG1000 will be docile and easy to control. If you have few flight,
fly only when the wind speed is 5 mph or less. After you have enough flight, you can fly in
winds that are no more than 16 mph per hour. If flown in stronger winds, the plane may be
blown down wind and not have enough power to get back. The visibility range should not
less than 1000m. Do not fly in rain or fog. Please check the direction of wind before your
flying.
2、Also, Choose a large open area free of trees, power lines ,railway, road, parking lot,
buildings or any other obstacles. Do not fly around groups of people, especially children.
We recommend that the lawn or links are good flying field.
3、Don't fly in aviation control areas or military bases.
PIC.69
4、Make sure no one use the same radio frequency as you do
in the same area to avoid frequency interference. There is
a frequency label on the transmitter crystal, which shows
the frequency band you use(PIC.69); if someone in your
area use the same frequency, do not switch on the
transmitter until their flight finished.
5、Always switch on the transmitter before supplying power
for the plane to avoid interference; make sure the battery
is charged and fresh AA batteries are installed in the transmitter.
6、The Cessna 182 is for pilots who graduate to a more complex airplane. Have an
experienced pilots instructed how to test and fly for pilots without any experience.
FLIGHT
The DG1000 RTF version includes the “Auto Cut-Off” feature of the speed control
provides an extra degree of insurance when the battery runs low. It reacts to low power by
decelerating the rotate speed of motor even cut the power supply to the motor, in effect
saving power for the receiver. That way your airplane goes into a glide and you stay in
control as you land.
If you have never flown an R/C airplane before, we recommend that you get help from an
experienced R/C pilot. Most R/C clubs have training programs that will help you learn to fly
quickly. If you cannot find an experienced pilot to help you learn, the following will help you
get your airplane into the air.
1、We strongly recommend you to choose the “NORMAL” mode for your first flight of
DG 1000, and then switch to the “AUTO” mode after you adjust the airplane.
2、Switch your transmitter on , and assure that the throttle stick and its trim is at the min
position.
3、Connect the battery with the plane. The propeller will rotate fast if you pull the throttle
stick to a higher position.
CAUTION: Stay clear of the propeller. Always keep your hands behind the propeller.
-10-
4、Make a range check before each flight. Have an assistant hold the plane. With the
antenna folded, walk 100 feet (about 30m) away from the plane and then hold the
transmitter with the antenna pointing up to test the responses of each control surface by
moving the control sticks. Also, turn the motor on and check the range. If you still have
control of the airplane, it is safe to extend the transmitter antenna and fly the plane; if not,
check if there are fresh batteries installed in the transmitter and if the battery in the plane
is charged; also make sure the wire antenna is extending out the back of plane.
5、Please Check the direction of wind. The plane should take-off against the wind. With the
throttle stick moved fully to the top, the propeller rotates fast. Then hand launch the
plane into the wind, at a slight upward angle (0-10 degrees). Pull the stick toward you so
that the plane climbs at a 10 to 30 degree angle. Allow the airplane to climb a few
seconds before turning it.
6、When the plane is moving away from you, move the aileron control stick to the left,
combined with a small amount of up elevator, your plane will turn left; move the aileron
control stick to the right, your plane will turn right. To stop the turn, move the stick the
opposite direction until the plane is flying level and return the elevator to center.
CAUTION: ONLY A SMALL AMOUNT OF UP ELEVATOR IS NEEDED HERE.
7、When the plane is coming toward you, move the aileron control stick to the left. But the
plane flies to your right. That is to say, you have to reverse the way to control ailerons
when the plane flies toward you. Here's a good way for you, you can turn your body when
the plane flies toward you so that you are facing the same direction the plane is flying to;
you can look at the plane over your shoulder. Now when you move the aileron control
stick to left the plane will fly to your left.
8、When the plane climbs to a high enough altitude, you can adjust the trim lever to maintain
straight and level flight. When loose the elevator control stick, if the plane tends to nose
up, you can push the elevator trim lever to the direction away from you; if the plane tends
to nose down, you can push the elevator trim lever to the direction towards you. Only a
small amount of adjustment should be OK. If the plane doesn't go as you adjusted, you
can adjust twice or more. Your goal is to get the plane fly level or climb at a very small
angle (like 0-5 degrees) with the elevator, throttle control stick at their neutral positions.
9、For beginners, rudder is mainly used for take off and landing. During take off and landing,
it is necessary to control the plane turn to left or right by controlling the rudder, instead of
controlling the aileron. Move the rudder control stick to the left will make the plane turn to
left; move this stick to the right will make the plane turn to right. If the plane tends to turn
with the left stick centered, move the rudder trim lever opposite the direction the plane is
turning.
10、With the plane flying level, check to see if the plane is flying straight. Move the aileron
control stick in neutral position, if the plane wants to turn, move the aileron control trim
lever opposite the direction the plane is turning. Then the plane is trimmed OK. If you
take your hands off the sticks, the plane will fly straight and level on its own. Having the
plane trimmed properly makes flying much easier and more enjoyable.
11、Don't let the plane get too far away from you. The farther away it is, the harder it is to see
what the airplane is doing. Especially when the battery runs low, you should control the
plane back to you immediately.
12、When learning to fly, it is best to keep the plane high enough so that you have enough
altitude to correct it if you make a mistake.
-11-
LANDING
It's time to land the plane now. The problems you are facing are where and how to land it.
1、For the sake of safety, you should land the plane before the battery exhausted if you are
a beginner. The power system of Cessna 182 comes with “Auto Cut Off” feature which
reserves battery power for safe landing.
2、During the first flight, while at a high altitude, turn the motor off and retract the flaps
(move it at position “1” or “2”), Then notice how the plane reacts. This will give you an
idea of how the plane will react during a landing.
3、To land the Cessna 182, fly down wind, past the landing area. Gently turn into the wind
and reduce the speed so that the plane starts to come down. Adjust the throttle when
needed to reach the landing area, but not fly past it. Get the plane 1m or 2m above the
ground when it is closed to the landing area.
4、Just before landing, at about 0.3m above the ground, apply a little up elevator to make
the plane nose up (not to make it climb). This will cause the plane to slow and settle to
the ground. When the plane is sliding on the ground, you can control the plane to run
straightly by moving the rudder control stick till it stops. Please don't force it to stop by
your body or anything else.
COUTION: Just before the plane touching down, pull the throttle control stick to its lowest
position. Because after landing, the propeller cannot rotate with the throttle in the run
position. Immediately move the throttle stick down to stop the motor. If you fail to do this,
the propeller will be damaged because of hard landing. And the motor, speed control or
the battery will become very hot and be dangerous.
AFTER THE FLIGHT
Unplug the battery with the plane and switch off the transmitter. Allow enough time for
the motor and battery to cool before recharging. Check the plane carefully and make sure
no parts have gotten loose or damaged.
