COMMENTS

The propeller and prop adapter listed as replacement parts in the
manual are not included and must be purchased separately.

To simplify setup, the high-rate (3D) control throws for this model
are automatically set by the geometry of the included hardware.
If your radio has the capability, low-rates will make it easier to
perform precision aerobatics. Great Planes recommends 40% endpoints
for all low-rate throws. If your radio does not have low-rates, set
up the model using only the high-rate throws.
