First Flight
If this is your first turbine powered model we suggest you seek the help of an experienced RC Jet Pilot for the maiden flight of your model. Before starting the turbine, ensure you have all safety equipment in place incase of a fire or other problem. We suggest you do not use take-off flaps on the first flight. The control throws for the airplane are a starting point and can be changed for your desired flight needs. On our flight testing we used about 15% expo on elevator and ailerons. After you get the airplane trimmed we suggest you extended flaps and slow the airplane down to landing speed. On landing do not force the airplane down, just decrease power to idle and hold the airplane off until it gently touches down. Happy Flying!!
