PROTECT YOUR MODEL, YOURSELF
AND OTHERS; FOLLOW THESE
IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Your SkyFly 2 should not be considered a toy, but
rather a sophisticated, working model that functions
very much like a full-size airplane. Because of its
performance capabilities, the SkyFly 2, if not assembled
and operated correctly, could possibly cause injury to
you or spectators and damage to property.
We highly recommend that you get experienced,
knowledgeable help with assembly and during
your fi rst fl ights. This will make your modeling
experience more enjoyable. You’ll learn faster and
avoid risking your model before you are truly ready
to solo. Your local hobby shop has information about
fl ying clubs in your area whose membership includes
qualifi ed instructors. You can contact the Academy
of Model Aeronautics (AMA), which has more than
2,500 chartered clubs across the country. Instructor
training programs and insured newcomer training are
available through any one of these clubs.

1. Assemble the plane according to instructions.
DO NOT alter or modify the model. If you make any
modifi cations, you void your warranty.
2. Test the operation of the model before each fl ight
to insure that all equipment is operating properly and
that the model remains structurally sound.
3. Fly only on calm days (with wind speeds less than
5mph) and in large, open areas free of trees, people,
buildings, or any other obstacles.
Remember: Take your time and follow the
instructions to end up with a well-built model
that is durable and easy to fl y. The R/C model
hobby becomes more and more enjoyable as your
experience grows. Your chances for success and
graduation to higher levels are very good if you
take your time and follow the assembly and fl ying
instructions carefully and completely. We hope you
enjoy fl ying your SkyFly 2 airplane.
