anything that can ignite.
• Always ensure the aircraft is secure
and will not move once the engine is
started.
• Always rebind your transmitter
to your receiver(s) after setup and
before first flight.
• Always ensure the throttle failsafe is
set to low throttle in your transmitter.
• Always perform a range check prior
to flight.
• Always cut off the fuel supply (pinch
or disconnect the fuel line to the
carburetor) or use the throttle linkage
to shut off the air in order to stop the
engine.
• Never use hands, fingers, or any other
body part to stop the propeller.
• Never throw any object into a
propeller to stop it.
• Never run the engine in the vicinity
of loose small objects, such as gravel
or sand, to avoid the propeller uncon-
trollably throwing such materials.
• Never wear loose clothing or a loose
neckstrap when operating your model
engine as these items could become
entangled in the propeller.
• Never have loose objects such as
screwdrivers, pencils etc. in your
pockets when operating your model
engine. These could fall into the
propeller.
• Never allow fuel to come into contact
with eyes or mouth. Gasoline and
other fuels used in model engines are
poisonous.
• Always ensure gasoline and fuel are
stored in a clearly marked container
well away from the reach of children.
Precautionary Guidelines
• Always mount the engine securely on
a bench mount or high-quality engine
mount.
• Always use the correct size and pitch
of propeller for your engine. Refer to
Propeller Chart in this manual.
• Always confirm proper balance of
your propeller prior to installation
of the engine. Failure to do so could
cause damage to the engine and/or
the airframe.
• Always utilize an electric starter to
start your engine.
• Always discard any propeller that
is nicked, scratched, cracked or
damaged in any way.
• Always run your model engine in a
well-ventilated area. Model engines
produce possibly harmful carbon
monoxide fumes.
• Always store your fuel safely in a
sealed, water-resistant container.
• Always store fuel in a cool,
dry location. Do not allow fuel
containers to come in direct contact
with concrete, as the fuel may absorb
moisture.
• Always responsibly discard fuel if
there is condensation and/or water
inside the fuel container.
• Never return unused fuel from the
fuel tank back into the fuel container.
• Never attempt to repair or modify a
propeller beyond its intended use.
• Never handle model engines,
mufflers and/or tuned pipes until they
have had time to cool. They become
extremely hot when in use.
