Build Tips

  • The manual printing is dark. If you need to see certain photos better, you can view the PDF online by clicking on this Manual Link
  • The manual does not cover installing the wheels on the axles.
    • Place a wheel onto an axle
    • Apply blue thread lock to the set screw
    • Install wheel collar and snug the set screw with the included 1.5mm hex driver
  • Page 26, step two should read:

Angle Mode Calibration

Please Calibrate the accelerometer before first flights as described in the manual an on the Cypher Wiki Main Page

Key adjustments before first flight for smooth transitions! Set per manual:

  • Adjust fan angle with gauges for
    • 45 degree/Magic
    • 0 degree/Forward Flight
    • Hover fan angle.
  • Adjust elevon angles with gauge.
  • Check CG
  • NOTE: The elevon gauge sets the Cypher conservatively. Your Cypher is likely to climb a bit in forward flight initially. If adjustments are needed, land and turn the elevon clevises. Example, if climbing, turn both clevises in 1 turn and try again. Repeat as needed.
Initially climbing is better than diving!
