LiteHawk CHASE - Operational Range
The range of your boat is approximately 250ft which, due to its small size, is in excess of normal vision. The farther the boat goes away from you the
smaller it will become and the harder it will be to determine the boat’s direction We suggest you drive at a distance between 5ft-20ft, this keeps your boat within a safe operational distance.


LiteHawk CHASE - Deck Removal and Battery Placement

- To remove deck, locate the wire loop at the rear of the boat.

- Push back on the loop, and deck unlocks.

Pull up on deck stud, and remove. Reverse the procedure to install.


Battery Placement

- First, find the velcro strip inside the boat. The battery we include has the Velcro strip that goes with the one in the boat. Place the battery by gently pressing into place.

LiteHawk CHASE - Charging
The LiteHawk CHASE comes with a portable charger. This allows you to charge at home as well as lake-side, you do not need to plug this into a standard household power outlet.
- Install 8xAA batteries into the charger (Note the polarity + or -)
- Make sure the AC/DC switch is in the AAX8 or switched to the left.
- Plug the 6 Volt battery pack into the charger. A green indicator light will turn on letting you know it is now charging.
- When the Green indicator goes out the battery is fully charged.
- Unplug the battery and switch the AC/DC switch to the right (DC12V) to turn the charger off .
- The Battery takes 30-45mins to fully charge.
- It is normal for the battery to get warm during the charging process. Do not charge the battery on a surface that is flammable or can be damaged by heat.
- Do not leave the battery and charger unattended while charging.
- Do not store the battery plugged into the charger - Never charge when damp or wet.

LiteHawk CHASE - On The Water
When using your CHASE in a pool, make sure the pool is clear. NEVER DRIVE YOUR BOAT WITH PEOPLE IN THE WATER. Remember the CHASE is fast. Apply the throttle slowly to avoid crashing into the sides of the pool. Crashing into the sides of the pool at high speed may damage your pool and boat.     IMPORTANT... Read the Tip at the bottom of this page.
When using your boat in lakes or larger bodies of water, check the area for rocks, logs, etc.. that could damage the boat while driving. Do not run the boat in water with weeds growing to the surface, as they will get caught in the propeller and stress the motor and electronics. Check water currents before putting the boat in the water. Strong currents are not recommended. Make sure the water is at least 8 inches deep. Make sure your hands are clear of the propeller and rudder when you are placing the boat in and out of the water. For your fi rst few runs try to keep the boat within 5-15ft of you so you can see how the boat reacts to steering and throttle input. Once you have more experience you can venture a little farther away. Remember the controls are proportional just like a real boat. Ease on and off the throttle until you are comfortable.
LiteHawk CHASE - Propeller Replacement
-Before getting started, Make sure the battery is unplugged and the transmitter is turned off.
-The propeller on the LiteHawk CHASE is held in place by a friction fit, so you will need two sets of Pliers to remove the nut from the end of the flex shaft.
-Use the pliers as illustrated to unscrew the nut counterclockwise, and set it aside. Be careful, as the blade can be quite sharp. The nut has a plastic washer inside which keeps the nut from coming loose during use, so it is quite tight during removal.
-Slide the propeller off the end of the flex shaft shaft, paying attention to the orientation of the blades. To replace, simply slide the new propeller onto the shaft oriented in the same direction as the old propeller.
-Reattach and tighten the nut on the end of the flex shaft. The propeller is held in place by friction to keep it from slipping. Make sure the nut holds the propeller tightly, but be careful not to over tighten and damage the propeller.
LiteHawk CHASE - Changing Rudder and Flex Shaft Maintenance
- Unscrew the two screws holding the rudder in place. Be careful not to lose the metal spacers that go between the rudder and the hull of the boat. Once these are unscrewed the rudder is easily removed by dropping it downwards and disconnecting it from the push rod.
- If you are just replacing the rudder reverse directions to re-attach. If you are performing flex shaft maintenance or removal leave rudder unattached. To Remove flex shaft firmly grip the shaft where it comes out of the boat and pull backwards. Make note of the small rubber connector from the motor to the flex shaft. While pulling the flex shaft out this connector sometime disconnects from both motor and flex shaft - promptly place it back on the motor shaft to not lose it .
- Once the shaft is out you can clean it and apply new marine grease. To replace the flex shaft simply slide it back in the hole. While sliding it through make sure it lines up with the rubber connector on the motor. A firm push will pop it back into the connector. Once the flex shaft is back in place you are ready to re-attach the rudder.


 Tips: If you notice your Chase doing a jittery dance, with the rudder assembly twitching uncontrollably.. Make sure that your battery is fully charged. Often that will fix it. Another reason for the twitching, is if the boat has run into something and come to a sudden stop. The motor in the boat is held on with a friction tie down, and if hit hard enough the motor may move, and if it moves, the capacitors attached to the outside of the motor may make contact with the motor housing, causing this stuttering action. Carefully lift away from the motor.
