Safety Information
Flying models are not toys, and should only be operated by responsible clear thinking people. Assembling and maintaining models
requires a basic level of technical skill, and a sensible logical approach. Any error in building, repairing or maintaining the model
could result in serious injury or damage. Technical problems or an
incorrectly assembled model may lead to the propeller unexpectedly beginning to turn. Always stay out of the vicinity of rotating
propellers and never allow any item to come into contact with a
spinning prop. As neither the manufacturer or the dealer has any
influence over the way that models are operated they can accept
no responsibility for and damage caused.
If this model is the first radio controlled model which you are attempting to build or fly, you should secure the assistance of an
experienced model pilot. Your local dealer will be able to assist
you in locating your local model aircraft club or experienced pilots
in your area.
NEVER fly your model over people and never operate the model
in way which may endanger people or animals. Before your first
flight you should conduct a range check of the radio control system, secure the model to a solid object, and ensure that you have
full control of all functions with the antennae collapsed over a distance of at least 25 metres. Before and after every flight inspect
the model for damage, and rectify any faults before you attempt to
take off. The operator is responsible for any damage caused by the
operation of flying models.
Always observe any local laws regarding the operation of model

The model should not be changed in any way, doing so will

Do not expose the model or batteries to direct sunlight, always
keep them in the shade.
Inspect the model before and after every flight for damage.
Only ever fly the model if it is in perfect working order.
The model can only be flown in good weather. Do not fly in
wind, rain or thunder storms.
Find a place to fly which complies with any laws, and is free
from obstacles such as trees, houses or power cables.
Remember that your model is made from such materials as
plastic and wood, and as such is inflammable. Keep it away
from any open flame, or high temperatures.
When operating the model, switch on the transmitter first and
then the aircraft, switch off in the reverse order.
Always ensure that the throttle stick is in the low position before you switch on.
