INTRODUCTION.

Thank you for choosing the NEMESIS ARTF by SEAGULL MODELS. The NEMESIS wasdesigned with the intermediate/advanced sport scale in mind. It is a semi scale airplane which iseasy to fly and quick to assemble. The airframe is conventionally built using balsa, plywood to makeit stronger than the average ARTF , yet the design allows the aeroplane to be kept light. You will findthat most of the work has been done for you already. The motor mount has been fitted and the hingesare pre-installed . Flying the NEMESIS is simply a joy.

This instruction manual is designed to help you build a great flying aeroplane. Please read thismanual thoroughly before starting assembly of your NEMESIS. Use the parts listing below to identifyall parts.

WARNING.

Please be aware that this aeroplane is not a toy and if assembled or used incorrectly itis capable of causing injury to people or property. WHEN YOU FLY THIS AEROPLANE YOUASSUME ALL RISK & RESPONSIBILITY. If you are inexperienced with basic R/C flight we strongly recommend you contact your R/Csupplier and join your local R/C Model Flying Club. R/C Model Flying Clubs offer a variety of trainingprocedures designed to help the new pilot on his way to successful R/C flight. They will also be ableto advise on any insurance and safety regulations that may apply.

1) Carefully remove the aileron from oneof the wing panels. Note the position of thehinges.

2) Remove each hinge from the wing paneland aileron and place a T-pin in the center ofeach hinge. Slide each hinge into the wingpanel until the T-pin is snug against the wingpanel. This will help ensure an equal amountof hinge is on either side of the hinge line whenthe aileron is mounted to the aileron.

3) Slide the wing panel on the aileron untilthere is only a slight gap. The hinge is nowcentered on the wing panel and aileron.Remove the T-pins and snug the aileronagainst the wing panel. A gap of 1/64” or lessshould be maintained between the wing paneland aileron.

The control surfaces, including theailerons, elevators, and rudder, areprehinged with hinges installed, but thehinges are not glued in place. It isimperative that you properly adhere thehinges in place per the steps that followusing a high-quality thin C/A glue.

Note:

4)Deflect the aileron and completelysaturate each hinge with thin C/A glue. Theailerons front surface should lightly contact thewing during this procedure. Ideally, when the

hinges are glued in place, a 1/64” gap or lesswill be maintained throughout the lengh of theaileron to the wing panel hinge line.

Note: The hinge is constructed of a specialmaterial that allows the C/A to wick orpenetrate and distribute throughout thehinge, securely bonding it to the woodstructure of the wing panel and aileron.

To avoid scratching your new aero-plane we suggest that you cover your work-bench with an old towel. Keep a couple of jarsor bowls handy to hold the small parts after youopen the bags.Please trial fit all parts. Make sure you have thecorrect parts and that they fit and are alignedproperly before gluing! This will ensure properassembly as the NEMESIS is made fromnatural materials and minor adjustments mayhave to be made. The paint and plastic partsused in this kit are fuel proof. However, they arenot tolerant of many harsh chemicals includ-ing the following: paint thinner, cyano-acrylateglue accelerator, cyanoacrylate glue de-bonderand acetone. Do not let these chemicals comein contact with the colours on the covering andthe plastic parts.

NOTE:

HINGING THE AILERONS.

5) Turn the wing panel over and deflect theaileron in the opposite direction from theopposite side. Apply thin C/A glue to eachhinge, making sure that the C/A penetrates intoboth the aileron and wing panel.

6) Using C/A remover/debonder and apaper towel, remove any excess C/A glue thatmay have accumulated on the wing or in theaileron hinge area.

HINGING THE ELEVATOR.

8) After both ailerons are securely hinged,firmly grasp the wing panel and aileron tomake sure the hinges are securely glued andcannot be pulled out. Do this by carefullyapplying medium pressure, trying to separatethe aileron from the wing panel. Use cautionnot to crush the wing structure.

7) Repeat this process with the other wingpanel, securely hinging the aileron in place.

HINGING THE RUDDER.

Glue the elevator hinges in place using thesame techniques used to hinge the ailerons.

Glue the rudder hinges in place using thesame techniques used to hinge the ailerons.

Work the aileron up and down severaltimes to “work in” the hinges and checkfor proper movement.

3) Carefully bend the second nylon tubeup at a 45º angle. This tube is the vent tube.

1) Using a modeling knife, carefully cutoff the rear portion of one of the 3 nylon tubesleaving 1/2” protruding from the rear of thestopper. This will be the fuel pick up tube.

INSTALLING THE STOPPER ASSEMBLY.

Thread locker glue.

4) Test fit the stopper assembly into thetank. It may be necessary to remove some ofthe flashing around the tank opening using amodeling knife. If flashing is present, makesure none falls into the tank.

Important: When the stopper assembly is in-stalled in the tank, the top of the vent tubeshould rest just below the top surface of thetank. It should not touch the top of the tank.

Carefully use a lighter or heat gun topermenently set the angle of the vent tube.

See pictures below.Make yourself thetemplate of your engine on paper.

ENGINE MOUNT INSTALLATION.

Mark and drill 4 holes for engine mount. Insert 4 blind nuts to firewall.

5) With the stopper assembly in place,the weighted pick-up should rest away fromthe rear of the tank and move freely inside thetank. The top of the vent tube should rest justbelow the top of the tank. It should not touchthe top of the tank.

6) When satisfied with the alignment ofthe stopper assembly tighten the 3 x 20mmmachine screw until the rubber stopper ex-pands and seals the tank opening. Do notovertighten the assembly as this could causethe tank to split.

You should mark which tube is the ventand which is the fuel pickup when you

attach fuel tubing to the tubes in the stopper.Once the tank is installed inside the fuselage,it may be difficult to determine which is which.

WING ASSEMBLY.

To correct this, move the battery and receiverforward orif this is not possible, stick weightonto the firewall.When balanced correctly, theairplane should sit level or slightly nose downwhen you lift it up with your fingers.

2) If the nose of the plane falls, the planeis nose heavy. To correct this first move thebattery pack further back in the fuselage. Ifthis is not possible or does not correct it, sticksmall amounts of lead weight on the fuselagesides under the horizontal stabilizer. If the tailof the plane falls, the plane is tail heavy.

1) It is critical that your airplane be bal-anced correctly. Improper balance will causeyour plane to lose control and crash. The cen-ter of gravity is locate 10cm back from theleading edge of the wing, measured at wingtip.

BALANCING.

FLIGHT PREPARATION.

A) Check the operation and direction of the elevator, rudder, ailerons and throttle. B) Plug in your radio system per the

manufacturer's instructions and turn every-thing on.

C) Check the elevator first. Pull back onthe elevator stick. The elevator halves shouldmove up. If it they do not, flip the servo re-versing switch on your transmitter to changethe direction.

E)Check the throttle. Moving the throttlestick forward should open the carburetor bar-rel. If it does not, flip the servo reversing switchon your transmitter to change the direction.

D) Check the rudder. Looking from be-hind the airplane, move the rudder stick to theright. The rudder should move to the right. If itdoes not, flip the servo reversing switch onyour transmitter to change the direction.

3) Double check the balance of the air-plane. Do this with the fuel tank empty. 4) Check the control surfaces. All shouldmove in the correct direction and not bind inany way.

6) Check to ensure the control surfacesare moving the proper amount for both lowand high rate settings.

8) Properly balance the propeller. An outof balance propeller will cause excessive vi-bration which could lead to engine and/or air-frame failure.

We wish you many safe and enjoyable flights with your NEMESIS.

7) Check the receiver antenna. It shouldbe fully extended and not coiled up inside thefuselage.

5) If your radio transmitter is equippedwith dual rate switches double check that theyare on the low rate setting for your first fewflights.

2) Check every bolt and every glue jointin the NEMESIS to ensure that everything istight and well bonded.

F) From behind the airplane, look at theaileron on the right wing half. Move the aileronstick to the right. The right aileron should moveup and the other aileron should move down. Ifit does not, flip the servo reversing switch onyour transmitter to change the direction.

PREFLIGHT CHECK.

1) Completely charge your transmitterand receiver batteries before your first day offlying.
