To make sure that your airplane flies well, first test it without using the motor.
- Face the wind.
- Without turning on the motor, launch the airplane into the wind.
- Observe the flight.
- Identify the behavior of the airplane, and adjust the control surfaces accordingly (see the section Understanding Flight Maneuvers later in this guide). When the airplane glides steadily, you are ready to fly with the motor running. Do not perform any maneuvers.
