Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is the radio controlled, glow powered, Ready-To-Fly,
Hobbico NexSTAR Select .46 trainer airplane.
For Beginner Modeler/Fliers.

With such features as AFS (Active Flight Stabilization), SpinControl
Airfoil Extensions, SpeedBrakes Training Flaps and much more,
no other trainer offers so much help for the first-time pilot.

In addition to the airplane, radio, and engine, this package also includes
a RealFlight NexSTAR Windows PC disc with transmitter interface
to use with the included Futaba radio allowing the modeler to
practice and perfect their skills without risking the airplane.

MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE NEXSTAR SIMULATION SOFTWARE:
Windows XP, 2000, Me or 98 Second Edition
**NOT Compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7**
NOTE: Window 98 First Edition is not supported with the NexSTAR
simulation software
Intel Pentium 300 Processor or equivalent
3D accelerated video card with 8MB (or more) RAM

OPTIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS FOR THE NEXSTAR SIMULATION SOFTWARE:
Intel Pentium 600 or equivalent
STRONG RECOMMENDATION of 3D accelerated video card with 16MB (or more) RAM

NOTE: The NexSTAR disk included in this kit is NOT compatible with
any version of the RealFlight Add Ons Volumes.

FEATURES

Construction: Balsa and plywood
Wings: CenterCore Molded Composite Main Wing Rib maintains perfect
alignment and includes a built-in aileron servo mount, wing halves
are joined with a steel rod.
Flat bottom high mount configuration
One-piece, all wood precision airfoil with SpinControl Airfoil
Extensions provide lift even in a stall to keep the NexSTAR level
and the pilot in control.
PivotFlex Wing Mounting System fastens with one nylon bolt, a
rubber retainer and pivoting channel absorb minor jolts of
normal use, more severe jolts cause the wing to separate from the
fuselage and escape the full force of impact.
Airspeed Restrictor: SpeedBrakes Training Flaps attach to forward
section of wing near fuselage and hold airspeed to a minimum to
insure smooth landings, removeable as pilot skills increase
Covering: Polyester based heat shrink, color scheme is White and Red
with Silver accents. True Red TOPQ0227
Engine: Pre-installed O.S. Max .46AX (7.5cc) with High-Speed
Needle Valve extender/limiter that limits the movement of the
High-Speed Needle to prevent engine from being run too lean.
Engine is mounted on IsoSmooth Mount to isolate airframe and
radio gear from damaging vibration
Radio: Futaba 4YBF 4-channel FM radio with(micro) square trainer port
AFS (Active Flight Stabilization) that actively searches for any
signs of instability and takes immediate action to correct them.
This system uses on-board electronic sensors that detect
instability-just release the sticks and AFS does the rest.
Sensitivity is adjustable as pilot gains flight skills.
Landing Gear: Duraluminum SnapGear Quick Landing Gear Mounts (US
Patent #6,886,780) lock in place with a snap and provide the
strongest landing gear of any trainer, also easily removeable
Aileron Control: Single standard size servo, wings are built with
dual aileron servo trays for future upgrades as skills increase,
can also be equipped with flaps
Tail Mounting: EasyAlign System guides parts into place automatically
in perfect alignment without tools
Propeller: 11x5 nylon, black in color with painted tips to aid
visibility-available separately, HCAA3744
Building Time: Ready to fly in only 20 minutes

both material and workmanship at the date of purchase. This
warranty does not cover any component part damaged by use or
modification.

be taken to trim and sand each opening equally in the spinner
cone to maintain balance.
