Do you fly in your dreams? Grab the wheel, become airborne and Come fly with the “Aviator”, the first ever aircraft model from Ugears. The flight control tower bars regulate the speed, and the roll and pitch of the airplane or helicopter.
The model has three modules: the airplane, the helicopter and the flight control tower. As a beginner pilot you might want to start with the helicopter which is not as difficult to control as the airplane. Easier to manipulate but no less exciting, your chopper has a cockpit with doors that open and shut, and three-blade main and tail rotors. The airplane has a higher velocity and requires a certain skill to operate. This module is based on the wire-braced biplane and has a 5 piston motor.
Your cockpit is the control tower, a sophisticated device with a high-performance motor that powers the rotation of the swash plate with the bar – with an aircraft on one side and balance weight on the other.
The control tower is operated with two control bars:
- the control column regulates the roll and pitch of the flying machine;
- and the Motor controller to adjust RPM (revolutions per minute) sets the speed of the aircraft.
Fine tuning ensures the proper operation of the swash plate. When all three units are assembled and you are ready
to dive into the sky, it is time to wind up the motor. Make sure you don’t overextend the rubber bands in the motor –maximum winding must not exceed 25 half-turns. Hold on to the control column while releasing the Motor controller’s lock to launch your model. Wind it up - and you are ready to soar into the sky!
