READ ALL SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FLY YOUR MODEL BEFORE COMPLETELY
CHECKING OUT YOUR INSTALLATION.

Keep your hands a safe distance from the propeller when making adjustments to the carburetor and when disconnecting the glow plug wire.

We stress the use of a chicken stick or electric starter to prevent injury when starting your engine. Do not use your fingers.

In case of difficulty, the safest and easiest way to stop the engine is to pinch off the fuel line or remove it from the carburetor. Never throw anything into the propeller (rags, etc.) to stop the engine.

Never clamp your engine in a vice to test run. Mount your engine securely in your airplane or a commercial test stand. Never use wood screws to mount your engine. Use good quality machine screws and nuts.

Never run your engine in an enclosed area. Engines produce dangerous exhaust gases and must be run outdoors only.

 

Store your fuel in a tightly sealed container (metal or suitable plastic, NOT GLASS). Model fuel is poisonous and flammable. Keep it away from heat, flames, and the reach of children.

Never use propellers with nicks, scratches or cracks. Always use the correct size propeller for your engine. Be sure prop nut is tight and recheck it after each flight. Nylon props can be extremely dangerous if improperly used. Read prop manufacturers directions carefully.

Extreme care must be taken to protect your face, hands and body from the plane of the propeller. Don't start your engine on loose dirt, sand or gravel. A thrown blade or foreign objects drawn into the propeller could cause serious injury. NEVER LEAN OVER THE PROPELLER and wear eye protection when starting and running your engine.

   

Keep all loose articles (pencils, eyeglasses, etc.) out of shirt pockets, as they may fall out while adjusting your engine. Long hair, neck ties, loose shirt sleeves and clothing, etc. must be kept away from the prop.

Never operate any model aircraft near overhead electric or telephone lines. If your plane should get away from you a become caught in overhead lines, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RETRIEVE IT! Call the telephone or electric company and they will be happy to retrieve it for you.

   

Use a muffler and fly in designated areas. Be considerate to others.

YOUR ENGINE IS NOT A TOY! It is a precision piece of machinery and must be treated as such.

If you are in doubt about anything, it is best to call our factory. Asking your hobby dealer or an experienced modeler for assistance may be helpful, but may not provide you with correct information.

 
REMEMBER
SAFE OPERATION OF YOUR MODEL AND ENGINE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
