Welcome to our FAQ area for LiteHawk SPRINT. Simple tips and tricks are just below

LiteHawk SPRINT - Operational Distance

Your LiteHawk SPRINT comes with a 2.4 Ghz radio system, which allows you to play without the fear of ever losing control! Race or play with countless other drivers. The range of your model is approximately 250ft which, due to its small size, is in excess of normal vision. The farther the model goes away from you the smaller it will become and the harder it will be to determine the model’s direction. We suggest you stay at a distance between 20ft-50ft, this keeps your SPRINT within a safe operational distance.

LiteHawk SPRINT - Charging

Remove the battery from the model during charging. Make sure that battery and connectors are dry. You will notice that there are 2 plugs with wires coming out of the battery. The white plug with the white, black, and red wires is the balance plug. This is the plug you use with the supplied balance charger. This is a keyed plug and will only go in one way.
1. Plug your wall mount power supply into a 120V outlet and connect the balance charger into the opposite end. The green light on the balance charger will be solid green to indicate there is power.
2. Connect the battery’s white 3 pin balance connector into the corresponding port on the balance charger. A red light will come on, this indicates that the battery is being charged. Charging time is Approx 1.5-2 hours.
3. Charging is completed once red light goes out and the green light stays solid on. If both lights are still on for more than 2.5 hours, unplug the battery as the charger may be defective. Discontinue use immediately and call LiteHawk Technical Support.
4. Once charging is complete, unplug battery from charger and unplug charger from wall outlet.

During charging:
- 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

LiteHawk SPRINT - Before you drive:

Before every use it’s recommended to check that the steering and drivetrain are moving freely and nothing is binding. Next ensure that the model and the transmitter are working correctly. Before you drive your model, range test the radio system to ensure that it operates properly! Turn on the transmitter and then the model, check its operating as it should. Walk away from the model giving steering input with the radio until you reach the maximum distance you are planning to drive your model. If you lose input control walk back towards the model. You now know the safe operating distance for your immediate environment. Do not attempt to operate the model if there is any problem with the radio system/external interference with your radio signal at your location.

- Let’s Hit The Road
When heading out to drive your model, it’s important to always use common sense. Driving in an abusive and or rough style will only result in damage, broken parts, or poor performance. The ESC system is not waterproof. Avoid driving through puddles, mud, or snow. If water gets into the electronics it could damage them.
- Avoid overloading your model. Never run it in areas where its movement will be restricted, e.g.thick grass, weeds, mud etc. as this can over stress the motor and bind the drive train.
- Ensure nothing prevents the smooth running of the moving parts.
- Do not run your model in confined spaces. This is an outdoor toy, do not run in your home.
- Never run your model in a public space where it might upset or endanger people or wildlife.
- Immediately discontinue use of your vehicle and transmitter if you see lightning or hear thunder. Never use your vehicle in the rain.
- Do not dismantle or tamper with this R/C vehicle or its transmitter. The manufacturer and distributor will accept no responsibility, expressed or implied, for accidents or injuries caused as a result of dis-assembly, modification and/or usage against the instructions for this product.
- The transmitter’s range will vary depending on your surroundings and battery strength. Do not operate the model too far away or control could be lost (stay within 20-50 ft).
- Ensure that all batteries are correctly installed and that the li-Ion battery is fully charged and in good condition.
- Do not touch ANY moving parts during operation.
- Don’t run in public roads with traffic!
