with 3G3X Powerful Gyro System-
-Closest to Real Cessna Compare To Other Mini cessna Brand-

Realistic Flying Control
Mini Cessna Skyartec is the only mini Cessna r/c that has flying control
closest to reality compare to other brand.
Because of its size. Unlike the bigger size of
Cessna Skyartec, it is very hard to implement control system so it closes to the real cessna in
mini Cessna. But Skyartec made a big effort so their mini Cessna has almost the same function as
their bigger size of Cessna so it is close to the real
Here are the control system in Mini Cessna Skyartec:
I will explain with other brand. Why they don't have realistic control system.
In other brand, they only have elevator (horizontal tail wing) and rudder (vertical tail wing). The
turning motion is controlled by rudder. In real airplane, turning motion is mostly using aileron
and rudder is used for correction of the yaw (nose direction against plane forward movement).
While in Mini Cessna Skyartec, the turning motion is controlled by aileron just
like th real one. It does not have rudder as for this size, yaw correction is almost never happen
and also because it is high wing mounting.
Speed controller is also integrated. So the power will increase slowly against the movement of
The only thing that I think Skyartec need to improve next is to equip it with nose landing gear
steering so it can be controlled from the ground. At the moment it is fixed, makes it hard to take
off from the ground.
Current 2015 Model
Interesting CHANGES in this 2015 version of mini cessna skyartec. Being
equipped with powerful system named 3G3X Gyro and controlled
by SKY-G02 LCD 2.4 GHz
And now in 2015 model, they add Navigation Lights.
The 3G3X Gyro system will give much more benefit in flying especially for
beginners and the SKY-G02 will give much more friendly method to adjust your flying
performance setting. With SKY-G02, adjusting flying performance will be directly from LCD on
As a flyer myself, and from many years (since 2007) I have been dealing with
flying remote control stuff (airplane and helicopter), I never see such an amazing poweful
system in flying. More detail are as follow.
Those who fly an airplane might understand more with this. Anyway I will try to
explain the best I can as if you never fly an airplane R/C before.
When we fly an r/c plane, especially at first or during take off, there is one
major challenge that will determine whether or not you crash or continue flying. Wohoo... pretty
scary isn't it? LOL.... :D
Here is the thing, when you take off either from ground or hand launch, the
plane sometimes move up and down or left to right seems like uncontrollable. To stabilize it,
you will need to do it manually from your remote. Sometimes our reaction is not as quick as what
is needed to control the plane and that could be the cause of crash.
This could happen to advance flyer and ESPECIALLY beginners because beginners
have one biggest problem that I call "BRAIN FREEZE"
To give you easy illustration imagine an airplane is flying straight. And then
suddenly there is side wind blow from left to right. The wind will make the plane tip over. The
3G3X will help the plane to hold to its level position.
Similarly if the plane is moving up and down due to turbulence wind, the 3G3X
will help to stabilize the plane and to avoid nose dive and crash.
Please note that 3G3X does not make the plane back to horizontal position, but
it is more to holding its current position.
With 3G3X system, this mini cessna and other Skyartec model that is equipped
with 3G3X will become more and more suitable to first time flyer and during windy condition.
Your Mini Cessna will be equipped with two lights, one on each wing tip.
One side will be colored in green and the other will be in red.
The red light will be on the left side and green light will on the right.
When you fly your Mini Cessna R/C in dawn or dusk, these lights can be very
useful for you. It helps you to know which direction your Mini Cessna r/c is flying.
For example, while flying it and you see:
Green lights on your left and red light on your right, it means that your Mini
Cessna r/c is flying towards you.
Red lights on your right and green light on your left, it means that your Mini
Cessna r/c is flying away from you.
Another Good Key Points About This Mini Cessna Skyartec
It is using Digital Onboard Parameter Setting Radio Control Design. For more detail
about this, please scroll down and find section about digital control system.
It is equipped with brushless motor that will give more power as it will not get
Powered by Li-Po battery that has more capacity and power.
2.4 GHz frequency system that allow up to 20 people to fly in the same area without
interference. The 2.4 GHz system also reduces the interferences with other things
surround such as high grid power line, other radio system surround you.
Material is made by EPO foam that will have more flexibility, hence it will not easily
break when crash occur. However speaking realistically, if you have a very extremely
bad crash, then it will break.

Digital Onboard Parameter Setting
Mini Cessna Skyartec is using control system called SKY-G02. It is a powerful
function mini 4 channels - 2.4 GHz radio controller, highly anti-interference performance, quick
responses. Pilot can set the flying control parameter in LCD onboard from the radio controller,
which making the settings are more accurate and convenient.
Other controller from other brands, if you need to adjust the flying parameter,
you need to use your computer, and then install the program from the CD provided, etc, etc. Too
much to do. So when you fly and something is not precise, you need to either go home and do the
setting or bring your laptop. Not very convenient!
The controller needs 4 pieces of AA batteries. Take a look below for what you
can adjust from this controller:
Digital Trimming and Flight
This is the main screen. You will be able to see:
The battery capacity leftover.
Flight time (you need this so you know when you need to land your
Cessna. Under normal flying, it takes about 10 minutes to get the
battery almost flat from full).
Throttle power percentage.
Digital trimming for your elevator, throttle, aileron.
There are four area that you can adjust directly from the
This one is to set orientation of the servo. It means that if
you want to reverse the movement of the servo against your control stick, you can
set it here.
This is to set the sensitivity of the servo against control
stick. The more percentage, the more sensitive the movement from the servo against
your radio movement control stick.
You can also set the performance of the speed control system
against your throttle stick from your radio control.
This is for training mode. If you are an expert and you want to
help other flying this mini Cessna, you can connect your radio control to your
student's radio control. Cable is purchased separately.
