    Flight attention

    Do not fly at any place where another same-frequency model is being operated.

    Taking off:Taking off:Taking off:Taking off: Always take off toward the wind.

    When launch RAFALE-M by hands, maximize the power (include the micro-adjuster) and run several

    meters, then throw the RAFALE-M horizontally. When launch RAFALE-M on the ground, maximize

    the power and let RAFALE-M accelerate in direction of the wind and keep it running straightly,

    after it run more than 60 feet, then pull the elevator joy stick, and it will take off.

    Flight:Flight:Flight:Flight: To keep RAFALE-M flying only need 50% of the maximum power, it is a good idea to fly with power

    for a while and glide for a while. In this way you can prolong the maximum flight time and

    familiarize yourself with landing approaches.

    Landing:Landing:Landing:Landing: Before landing, switch off the power, fly along with the wind, and when RAFALE-M flies near

    to the ground, then pull the elevator joystick and RAFALE-M will landing gently. With more

    practice, then you could control the model easily.

    Phenomenon Problem How to solve Motor does not run ★ Battery is not fully charged.

    ★ The battery in the transmitter is not at full power.

    ★ The circuit in Rafale-M has been damaged due to

    crash.

    ★ Charge the battery.

    ★ Install new dry cells.

    ★ Contact the distributor.

    Can not fly straightly ★ The rudder is not on the center position. ★ Adjust the rudder on the center position.

    ★ Adjust the micro-adjuster on the transmitter

    for the rudder on the suit position.

    Can not climb ★ The battery is not fully charged.

    ★ The elevator declines downward.

    ★ Charge the battery.

    ★ Adjust the micro-adjuster on the

    transmitter.

    Control distance is very

    near

    ★ The battery of transmitter is not at full power.

    ★ The antenna of transmitter has not been completely

    pulled out

    ★ Install new dry cells.

    ★ Completely pull out the antenna of

    transmitter.
