INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on your purchase of the Great Planes ElectriFly Cirrus SR22 ARF! With only an evening or two of final assembly, you will be rewarded with a beautiful scale model that flies with inexpensive radio components and can fit in the backseat of a car without removing the wings. The wings can be removed for storage by simply unscrewing the knurled wing bolts and sliding the panels off of the lightweight carbon wing tube. Battery changes are a snap with the self- aligning magnetic hatch. A fiberglass fuselage and canopy hatch ensure a smooth appearance that looks great in the pits and in the air. A cockpit interior, which only requires the addition of a pilot(s) of your choice, finishes off the realism.

IMPORTANT!!! Two of the most important things you can do to preserve the radio controlled aircraft hobby are to avoid flying near full- scale aircraft and avoid flying near or over groups of people.

PROTECT YOUR MODEL, YOURSELF & OTHERS… FOLLOW THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

1. Your Cirrus SR22 ARF should not be considered a toy, but rather a sophisticated, working model that functions very much like a full-size airplane. Because of its performance capabilities, the Cirrus SR22, if not assembled and operated correctly, could possibly cause injury to yourself or spectators and damage to property.

2. You must assemble the model according to the instructions. Do not alter or modify the model, as doing so may result in an unsafe or unflyable model. In a few cases the instructions may differ slightly from the photos. In those instances the written instructions should be considered as correct.

  • 3.

    You must take time to build straight, true and strong.

  • 4.

    You must use an R/C radio system that is in good condition,

a correctly sized motor, and other components as specified in this instruction manual. All components must be correctly installed so that the model operates correctly on the ground and in the air.You must check the operation of the model and all components before every flight.

5. If you are not an experienced pilot or have not flown this type of model before, we recommend that you get the assistance of an experienced pilot in your R/C club for
