Do Not Fly is Hazardous Areas!

· other considerations are met, make sure to take off If all directly into the wind. Flying into the wind helps to provide lift to the plane and help you get it into the air so that you can make turns more smoothly. If you take off at an angle to the wind it will cause the plane to shift in the direction the wind is blowing and cause you to potentially lose control of the aircraft. This is a very common cause of rc airplane crashes. Take off into the wind (the wind at your face, not your back)!

· any time during flight the airplane gets stuck, for example, If at in a tree, power line, on top of a roof, etc., DO NOT attempt to retrieve it yourself. It's not worth the risk of serious injury. We strongly suggest that you contact your local fire department for assistance. Again, the need for adult supervision is important. If used by a child, do they know they could get electrocuted if they touch a power line or they could even cut one by flying close to exposed power lines.


Note to Parents:
Adult supervision is required for the safe operation of an RC airplane. We have attempted to make this guide as clear as possible to help you but there is no substitute for the wisdom and experience of an adult. Use this RC plane at your own risk but most importantly keep your kids and others safe by following these guidelines and using proper judgement when in flight situations.

· modify batteries at will. Do not · dispose of batteries in a fire. Do not · NOT OVERCHARGE A BATTERY. DO We have never had a battery start a fire and the batteries we use are designed to not cause fire hazards but we do ask that you be careful in this area. Do not charge batteries beyond the estimated time required, usually not more that 4 hours. Do not charge batteries on top of flamable surfaces, such as carpets, cloths on near paper. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. · Overcharging or under charging a battery may also lead to battery damage and result in an accident. © 2006 - 2007 Boomerangs.com - All Rights Reserved
