Range check your radio before each flight. Switch
on the transmitter first and then the airplane. Have
a helper hold the airplane. With the transmitter
antenna collapsed, walk 50 feet away from the
airplane. Move both control sticks, checking that the
motors run and turn off following the control stick
movement. If you still have control over the airplane,
it is safe to extend the antenna and fly the airplane.
If you do not have control of the plane, make sure
the batteries in the transmitter are fresh and the
battery in the plane is charged. Also, make sure the
wire antenna is extending out the back of the plane.
Do not cut the antenna wire on the plane.

If you have never flown an R/C airplane before, we
recommend that you get help from an experienced
R/C pilot. Most R/C clubs have training programs
that will help you learn to fly quickly. If you cannot
find an experienced pilot to help you learn, the
following will help you get your airplane into the air.

1. First, turn your transmitter power switch “ON.”
This immediately puts you in control. Be sure to
extend your antenna completely.

2. Move the airplane’s switch to the “ON” position.
Caution: Stay clear of the propellers.

3. Have an assistant help with the launch. Move the
throttle stick (left) forward so that both motors are
running. Have your assistant launch the plane into
the wind.

4. Allow the airplane to climb at a 10-15° angle for a
few seconds before turning it. This will allow the
plane to gain altitude and air speed.

5. To turn the MICRO ULTRIX Biplane, move the
right stick to the left or right until the plane has
turned. When the MICRO ULTRIX Biplane is moving
away from you, moving the right stick to the left will

make your plane turn to the left. Moving the right
stick to the right will make the plane turn to the right.

6. When the plane is coming toward you, moving the
right stick left still causes the plane to turn left, but it
appears to turn to your right. In short, you have to
reverse the way you control the right stick. A good way
to familiarize yourself with the controls is when the
plane is coming toward you, turn your body so that you
are facing the same direction the plane is going,
looking over your shoulder at the plane. Now when you
move the right stick left the plane will go to your left.

7. Don’t let the airplane get too far away from you.
The farther away it is, the harder it is to see what the
plane is doing.

8. When learning to fly, it is best to keep the plane
high so that if you make a mistake, you have
enough altitude to correct the mistake.

It’s a known fact among fellow R/C pilots that your
airplane will land. It is up to you as to where and
how it lands.

1. The MICRO ULTRIX Biplane will fly for
approximately 3 to 5 minutes at full throttle on a fully
charged battery. For your first couple of flights we
recommend that you attempt to land before the
motors stop. This will allow enough power to abort
the landing and try again if you miss your landing
area. When the transmitter battery power is getting
low, the green light will turn OFF. Once the green light
is off, it is time to land your MICRO ULTRIX Biplane.

2. During your first flight, while at a high altitude,
turn the motors off and notice how the MICRO
ULTRIX Biplane reacts. This will give you an idea
how the plane will react during landing.

3. To land the MICRO ULTRIX Biplane, fly downwind
and a few feet past the landing area. Gently turn into
the wind and turn the motors off. The plane will start to
come down. If it appears that the MICRO ULTRIX
