SETTINGS FOR FLYING
After installing the electronics and setting up the transmitter, check that the control surfaces are aligned correctly.
Set the transmitter trim to zero. The ailerons should be aligned with the trailing edge of the wing tip. Then align the
flaps with the ailerons. The elevator should be aligned with the horizontal stabilizer and the rudder to the vertical stabilizer. Change the position of the moving parts by changing the length of the linkage from the servo arm to the control horn. In-flight adjustments can be made later with the trim.
Setting the servo travel
Aileron up: 12 mm, down: 7 mm
Elevator (measured inside back) up: 15 mm, down: 15 mm
Attention, the elevator has a great effect!
Rudder both sides: 40 mm
Aileron 0 %
Elevator – 40 %
Rudder – 30 %
Center of Gravity (CG)
The aircraft must balance precisely 57,4 mm/22.5 inches behind the leading edge (see markings on the fuselage). For the first flight we recommend to move the center of gravity about 5 mm/0.2 inches further forward.
Flight time will vary depending on the battery size. Expect 5 minutes under normal circumstances; however, it may be possible to fly for much longer. It is a good idea to be conservative with the flight timer until you gain experience with your airplane.
Wingspan 2500 mm/99 inches
