FREQUENCY FLAGS

When flying in an area where there are other people flying rc
airplanes, it is important to put your frequency flag at the tip
of your transmitter antenna. This will help avoid frequency
conflicts and major disasters.

The tip here is to make sure that the number is placed the right
side up. For example, the number 6 can be mistakenly placed
upside down and be read as a number 9.

As always, SAFETY first when flying.

========================================================

FLY WITH A CALLER

To prevent mid air collisions with another airplane, it is good to
always have a "caller" to alert you of possible collisions. The caller
is simply a person or friend who looks at other airplanes to make
sure that collisions do not occur.

The caller or your friend can also monitor the battery level of your
transmitter, so that you can land safely before you lose control.

========================================================

EMERGENCY ITEMS

Accidents are sometimes unavoidable, but they do not have to be
the end of your day. Here are some items you can bring that may
allow you to repair damages in the field:

1. Clear packing tape.
2. Spare propellers.
3. Spare glow plugs and fresh fuel (for gas airplanes).
4. Band aid (for yourself, just in case).

Happy flying!
