Pre-season check out
This year before your first flight of the day there are a few things that you need
to check on your model to insure a safe flight.
- Before you turn on radio place proper
channel marker on the frequency board. Range check radio, collapse antenna and walk 75' - 100' at least,
you should have full control of surfaces and no interface.
- Are the batteries charged do the
batteries need to be replaced, cycle the batteries with a discharger to insure they are up to the job. Do
not fly batteries that read lower than 4.8 volts when tested with 1amp load.
- Are all screws linkages, wire
connections tight? Make sure the muffler & carburetor, back plate screws have not worked
- Grab the flight box and bring the
entire hanger out for the day!. Have a safe flight and remember that the take off is optional, the
landing is mandatory.
