Jet Set - Getting Started

You will need:

  • 1 x Jet Set Plane

  • 1 x Remote Control

  • 6 x AA Premium Alkaline Non-Rechargeable Batteries (not included)

  • 1 x Phillips Screwdriver (not included)

Install the batteries. Open the battery compartment on the back of your controller using a Phillips head screwdriver. Place the 6 AA batteries in the battery compartment, making sure you are putting these in the right way.

Charge your plane. Plug the controller wire into the plane, move the power switch on the controller into the Chg position, and you will see a solid green light flash on the controller. The plane is now charging. When both remote lights flash together, your plane will be ready to fly.

Check your environment. The Jet Set is outdoor only so before flying, make sure your weather conditions are good. For the best flight, fly in calm, low wind conditions warmer than 50° F.

Turn the plane and the controller on. Have fun.

Where can I fly my Jet Set?

You Jet Set should be flown in a large, wide-open grassy location. The area you are in should have lots of space to fly with no buildings, trees, overhead wires or other things that could get in the way.

Fly on mild, sunny days – don’t fly in electrical storms, rain, sleet, snow, strong winds or any other kind of bad weather. Don’t bring it outside if the weather is below 7C/45F.

Indoor flight is only recommended if you’re able to use it in a very large space, such as an empty gymnasium or arena.

Follow these tips and you will be an expert pilot in no time!

troubleshooting & repair

How do I charge my Jet Set?

What you need:

  • 1 x Jet Set plane
  • 1 x Jet Set remote/charger with batteries already installed.

  1. Your remote control for your Jet Set plane is also your charger.

  2. Make sure that both the Remote and the Jet Set power switches are turned to the "CHG" position.

  3. Align and insert the charge dock rod on the remote control into the charge port on the underside of the plane. You should be aligned so that the Jet Set nose is facing the same direction as the radio antenna on the remote.

  4. Once plugged in and docked properly, the charge process will begin. You will know the plane is charging when you see the charging light flashing green.

  5. When charge is complete, both the power and the charge lights on the remote will flash together. Once complete, turn everything off and unplug and store the cord back in the remote. You are now ready to fly!

    My Jet Set is turning to the side! What do I do?

    If your plane is turning to the side on its own, the first thing you’re going to want to do is check all your propellers to see if there is any hair or debris caught in that area. Even just one little piece of hair can make your plane fly out of control!

    Now try and fly your plane. If it’s still turning to the side, the next step would be to "trim" your plane.
    See that little dial on your controller that says "Trim"? This will help you get your plane to fly straight.

    Setting the Trim:

    1. Figure out which direction your plane is turning. Are you turning to the left (counter-clockwise) or to the right (clockwise)?

    2. Make sure your remote is pointed at the plane for the best possible response.

    3. Give your plane a bit of throttle and get it up in the air. Start trimming in the opposite direction of the turn.
      • If your plane is turning to the right (clockwise), turn the trim dial counter-clockwise.
      • Same thing goes for the other way around. If your plane is turning to the left (counter-clockwise), turn the trim dial clockwise.

    The trim might need to be fixed after charging the plane and it will definitely need to be adjusted after crashes!

    Sometimes you’ll need to rotate the trim dial only 5 times or so, and sometimes you’ll need to rotate the trim dial up to 50 times. Try trimming it just a little bit. If it seems like it’s working, but it’s not quite there yet, turn it a few times more. It’ll even out eventually, so be patient!

    If your plane starts to turn the other way after trimming, you may have over-trimmed! If this happens, all you need to do is trim it in the opposite direction.

    Troubleshooting If you’ve trimmed your plane and it is still turning on its own, check for the following:

    Signal Interference: Fly outdoors in calm to low wind conditions. Make sure you are also not flying around other R/C products that might be sharing the same channel/frequency/bandwidth.
    Batteries: For trimming to work, your plane needs to be fully charged. Make sure you are using brand new, premium, non-rechargeable batteries.

    If your plane is still turning, give our Customer Care Team a call at 1-800-622-8339 and they’ll love to help out!

    Are there replacement parts available for my Jet Set?

    If your plane's propeller has been damaged, the good news is it can be easily replaced with the spare propeller in your Jet Set's box. Simply slide the old blade off and replace it with the new blade and you’ll be good to fly again!

    If the Styrofoam body of your plane is damaged, a little bit of clear packing tape will fix it.

    While other parts may not be replaceable, we would love to see if there is anything we can do for you. Give our Customer Care Department a call at 1-800-622-8339 and they will be glad to help you out!
