Battery Installation and ESC Arming

CAUTION: Always disconnect the Li-Po flight battery from the aircraft receiver when not flying to avoid over-discharging the battery. Batteries discharged to a voltage lower than the lowest approved voltage may become damaged, resulting in loss of performance and potential fire when batteries are charged.

CAUTION: Always keep hands away from the propeller. When armed, the motor will turn the propeller in response to any throttle movement.

Battery Selection

We recommend the Spektrum 2200mAh 14.8V 4S 30C Li-Po (SPMXB22004S30).If using another battery, the battery must be at least a 1200mAh 3S or 4S battery.Be sure to verify the center of gravity is correct with your selected battery before flying.

  6. Connect the battery to the ESC and keep the aircraft immobile on the ground and away from wind for 5 seconds.⇒ The ESC will sound a series of tones (refer to step 5 of the binding instructions for more information).If the ESC sounds a continuous double beep after the flight battery is connected, recharge or replace the battery.
  7. Reinstall the battery hatch. Push the rear of the battery hatch securely to ensure the latch is fully engaged.

Center of Gravity (CG)

An aircraft with correct CG has its weight balanced on the center of the aircraft for safe, stable flight.Balance the aircraft on your fingertips near the fuselage under the wings. Adjust the battery position as needed.

  • If the nose goes down, move the flight battery back until the aircraft balances.
  • If the nose goes up, move the flight battery forward until the aircraft balances.

Transmitter and Receiver Binding / Enabling and Disabling SAFE Select

General Binding Tips

  • The included receiver has been specifically programmed for operation of this aircraft. Refer to the receiver manual for correct setup if the receiver is replaced.
  • Keep away from large metal objects while binding.
  • Do not point the transmitter’s antenna directly at the receiver while binding.
  • The orange LED on the receiver will flash rapidly when the receiver enters bind mode.
  • • Once bound, the receiver will retain its bind settings for that transmitter until you re-bind.
  • If the receiver loses transmitter communication, the failsafe will activate.Failsafe moves the throttle channel to low throttle. Pitch and roll channels move to actively level the aircraft in flight.
  • If problems occur, refer to the troubleshooting guide or if needed, contact the appropriate Horizon Product Support office.

SAFE® Select Technology, Optional Flight Envelope Protection

The BNF Basic version of this airplane includes SAFE Select technology, enabling you to choose the level of flight protection. SAFE mode includes angle limits and automatic self leveling. AS3X mode provides the pilot with a direct response to the control sticks. SAFE Select is enabled or disabled during the bind process.

With SAFE Select disabled the aircraft is always in AS3X mode. With SAFE Select enabled the aircraft will be in SAFE Select mode all the time, or you can assign a switch to toggle between SAFE Select and AS3X modes.Thanks to SAFE Select technology, this aircraft can be configured for full-time SAFE mode, full-time AS3X mode, or mode selection can be assigned to a switch.

IMPORTANT: Before binding, read the transmitter setup section in this manual and complete the transmitter setup table to ensure your transmitter is properly programmed for this aircraft.

IMPORTANT: Move the transmitter flight controls (rudder, elevators, and ailerons) and the throttle trim to neutral. Move the throttle to low before and during binding.This process defines the failsafe settings.

You can use either the bind button on the receiver case or the conventional bind plug to complete the binding and SAFE Select process.

Using the Bind Button:

Using the Bind Plug:

SAFE Select Switch Designation

Once SAFE Select is enabled, you can choose to fly in SAFE mode full-time, or assign a switch. Any switch on any channel between 5 and 9 can be used on your transmitter.

If the aircraft is bound with SAFE Select disabled, the aircraft will be in AS3X mode exclusively.

CAUTION: Keep all body parts well clear of the propeller and keep the aircraft securely restrained in case of accidental throttle activation.

IMPORTANT: To be able to assign a switch, first verify:

  • The aircraft was bound with SAFE Select enabled.
  • Your choice for the SAFE Select switch is assigned to a channel between 5 and 9 (Gear, Aux1-4), and travel is set at 100% in each direction.
  • The aileron, elevator, rudder and throttle direction are set to normal, not reverse.
  • The aileron, elevator, rudder and throttle are set to 100% travel. If dual rates are in use, the switches need to be in the 100% position.

See your transmitter manual for more information about assigning a switch to a channel.

Assigning a Switch

  1. Power on the transmitter.
  2. Power on the aircraft.
  3. Hold both transmitter sticks to the inside bottom corners, and toggle the desired switch 5 times quickly (1 toggle = full up and down).
  4. The control surfaces of the aircraft will move, indicating the switch has been selected.

Repeat the process to assign a different switch or to deactivate the current switch.

SAFE Select Switch Assignment Stick Positions

This example of the channel monitor shows the stick positions for assigning a switch, the switch selection on Aux2, and +/- 100% travel on the switch.

Integrated ESC Telemetry

This aircraft includes telemetry between the ESC and receiver, which can provide information like battery voltage and temperature.

To View Telemetry:

  1. Begin with the transmitter bound to the receiver
  2. Power on the transmitter.
  3. Power on the aircraft.
  4. A signal bar appears in the top left corner of the screen when the telemetry information is being received.
  5. Scroll past the servo monitor to view the technology screens.

For more information about compatible transmitters, firmware updates, and how to use the telemetry technology on your transmitter, visit www.SpektrumRC.com.

Control Surface Centering

After assembly and transmitter setup, confirm that the control surfaces are centered. The model must be powered up bound to the transmitter in AS3X mode, with the throttle left at zero. When enabled, SAFE mode is active at power up.

AS3X mode is activated when the throttle is raised above 25% for the first time after being powered on. It is normal for the control surfaces to respond to aircraft movement if the aircraft is in AS3X or SAFE modes.

  1. Verify the trims and subtrims on your transmitter are zero
  2. Power up the model in AS3X mode and leave the throttle at zero
  3. Look at the tip of each control surface and verify it is mechanically centered.
  4. If adjustment is required, turn the ball link on the linkage to change the length of the linkage between the servo arm and the control horn.

Control Surface Centering

Switch on the transmitter and connect the battery. Use the transmitter to operate the aileron and elevator controls. View the aircraft from the rear when checking the control directions.

Ailerons1. Move the aileron stick to the left. The right aileron should move down and the left aileron up, which will cause the aircraft to bank left.2. Move the aileron stick to the right. The right aileron should move up and the left aileron down, which will cause the aircraft to bank right.

Elevators3. Pull the elevator stick back. The elevators should move up, which will cause the aircraft to pitch up.4. Push the elevator stick forward. The elevators should move down, which will cause the aircraft to pitch down.

Rudder5. Move the rudder stick to the left. The rudder should move to the left, which will cause the aircraft to yaw left.6. Move the rudder stick to the right. The rudder should move to the right, which will cause the aircraft to yaw right.

AS3X Control Direction Test (BNF Basic)

This test ensures that the AS3X® control system is functioning properly.Assemble the aircraft and bind your transmitter to the receiver before performing this test.

1. Raise the throttle just above 25%, then lower the throttle to activate AS3X technology.2. Move the entire aircraft as shown and ensure the control surfaces move in the direction indicated in the graphic.

If the control surfaces do not respond as shown, do not fly the aircraft. Refer to the receiver manual for more information.

Once the AS3X system is active, control surfaces may move rapidly. This is normal.AS3X remains active until the battery is disconnected.

Dual Rates and Control Throws

Program your transmitter to set the rates and control throws to the values given.These values have been tested and are a good starting point to achieve successful flight.After flying, you may choose to adjust the values for the desired control response.

In Flight Trimming

During your first flight, trim the aircraft for level flight at 3/4 throttle. Make small trim adjustments with your transmitter’s trim switches to straighten the aircraft’s flight path. After adjusting trim do not touch the control sticks for 3 seconds. This allows the receiver to learn the correct settings to optimize AS3X performance.

After landing, adjust the linkages mechanically to account for trim changes and then reset the trims to neutral. Ensure the aircraft will fly straight and level with no trim or sub-trim.

Failure to do so could affect flight performance.

Flying Tips and Repairs

Consult local laws and ordinances before choosing a flying location.

Range Check your Radio SystemBefore you fly, range check the radio system. Refer to your specific transmitter instruction manual for range test information.

OscillationOnce the AS3X system is active (after advancing the throttle for the first time), the control surfaces will react to aircraft movement. In some flight conditions oscillation may occur (the aircraft rocks back and forth on one axis due to overcontrol). If oscillation occurs, refer to the Troubleshooting Guide for more information.

LocationAlways choose a wide-open space for flying. It is ideal to fly at a sanctioned flying field. If you are not flying at an approved site, always avoid flying near houses, trees, wires and buildings. Never fly over people.

Hand LaunchingWhen hand-launching your aircraft alone, hold the aircraft in one hand and the transmitter in the other.

Apply about 1/2–3/4 throttle. Hold the aircraft on the underside behind the wing launch the aircraft directly into the wind, angled slightly up (5 to 10 degrees above the horizon). Avoid a baseball style throw where your throwing hand follows an arc. Your throw should instead be more like throwing a javelin; imagine guiding the aircraft onto a flight path. Allow the aircraft to climb to a safe altitude before maneuvering.

Flight TimeFor your first few flights with the recommended battery pack (SPMX18004S30), set your transmitter timer or a stopwatch to 5 minutes, then land. Adjust your timer for longer or shorter flights once you have flown the model. If at any time the motor pulses, land the aircraft immediately and recharge the flight battery. See the Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC) section for more details on maximizing battery health and run time.

LandingLand into the wind. This sailplane will require more room to land than many parkflyers because it won’t slow down as easily as most parkflyers. Plan your flight path and stay clear of trees, buildings and cars. Make a few practice approaches to get used to the aircraft’s sink rate during the landing approach. During landing approach manage the descent so the aircraft bleeds off speed as it descends. If the approach is too steep, the aircraft will pick up speed and overshoot the landing. When the aircraft settles into ground effect, feed in a small amount of up elevator to flare and land.

NOTICE: If a crash is imminent, reduce the throttle and trim fully. Failure to do so could result in extra damage to the airframe, as well as damage to the ESC and motor.

NOTICE: After any impact, always ensure the receiver is secure in the fuselage.

If you replace the receiver, install the new receiver in the same orientation as the original receiver or damage may result.NOTICE: Crash damage is not covered under warranty.NOTICE: When you are finished flying, never leave the aircraft in direct sunlight or in a hot, enclosed area such as a car. Doing so can damage the aircraft.

Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC)When a Li-Po battery is discharged below 3V per cell, it will not hold a charge. The ESC protects the flight battery from over-discharge using Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC).

Before the battery charge decreases too much, LVC removes power supplied to the motor. Power to the motor pulses, showing that some battery power is reserved for flight control and safe landing.

Disconnect and remove the Li-Po battery from the aircraft after use to prevent trickle discharge. Charge your Li-Po battery to about half capacity before storage.

During storage, make sure the battery charge does not fall below 3V per cell. LVC does not prevent the battery from over-discharge during storage.

NOTICE: Repeated flying to LVC will damage the battery.

TIP: Monitor your aircraft battery’s voltage before and after flying by using aLi-Po cell voltage checker (SPMXBC100, sold separately).

RepairsThanks to the EPO foam material in this aircraft, repairs to the foam can be made using virtually any adhesive (hot glue, regular CA, epoxy, etc). When parts are not repairable, see the Replacement Parts List for ordering by item number .

SAFE Select Flying Tips

When flying in SAFE Select mode the aircraft will return to level flight any time the aileron and elevator controls are at neutral. Applying aileron or elevator control will cause the airplane to bank, climb or dive. The amount the stick is moved will determine the attitude the airplane flies. Holding full control will push the aircraft to the pre-determined bank and roll limits, but it will not go past those angles. When flying with SAFE Select, it is normal to hold the control stick deflected with moderate aileron input when flying through a turn. To fly smoothly with SAFE Select, avoid making frequent control changes and don’t attempt to correct for minor deviations. Holding deliberate control inputs will command the aircraft to fly at a specific angle, and the model will make all corrections to maintain that flight attitude.  When flying with SAFE Select, throttle will make the aircraft climb or descend. Full throttle will cause the aircraft to pitch up and climb slightly. Mid throttle will keep the airplane flying level. Low throttle will cause the airplane to descend slightly nose-down. Return the elevator and aileron controls to neutral before switching from SAFE Select mode to AS3X mode. If you do not neutralize controls when switching into AS3X mode, the control inputs used for SAFE Select mode will be excessive for AS3X mode and the aircraft will react immediately.

Differences between SAFE Select and AS3X modes

This section is generally accurate but does not take into account flight speed, battery charge status, and other limiting factors.

Post Flight

  1. Disconnect the flight battery from the ESC (Required for Safety and battery life).
  2. Power OFF the transmitter.
  3. Remove the flight battery from the aircraft.
  4. Recharge the flight battery.
  5. Repair or replace all damaged parts.
  6. Store the flight battery apart from the aircraft and monitor the battery charge.
  7. Make note of the flight conditions and flight plan results, planning for future flights.
