Flyzone HCAA1985 User Manual
Your Sky Pilot plane is not a toy, but rather a
sophisticated, working model that functions very
much like an actual airplane. Because of its realistic
performance, the model, if not assembled and
operated correctly, could possibly cause injury to
yourself and spectators or damage property.
We highly recommend that you get experienced,
knowledgeable help with assembly and during your
first flights, to make your R/C modeling experience
totally enjoyable. You’ll learn faster and avoid risking
your model before you’re truly ready to solo. Your
local hobby shop has information about flying clubs
in your area whose membership includes qualified
instructors. You can also contact the national
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 the instructions.
Do not alter or modify the model. If you make any
modifications, you will void your warranty.
2. Test the operation of the model before each flight
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
5 mph) 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 fly.
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
flying instructions carefully and completely. We hope
you enjoy flying your Sky Pilot plane.
