Taiyo Jet Fighter : Translation from a distant Friend

I did mention in my revisited post that it would be great if I can translate or read what's written in the Japanese Manual that came with my Taiyo Jet Fighter. Well a very kind person granted my wish and sent me a message in Facebook with the translation.

I just learned recently about the "Others" Inbox of Facebook, apparently this is where messages from users not in your friends list are saved from. I received his message May 14 and it's already August! Well, better late than never is what they say. (^_^) Mr. George Armitage of Tauranga New Zealand thank you very much for the translation! 

Here is the pictures of the manual again,

This is the message sent to my by George:

    Your wish has come true

    Photo 1: (This is what is in English on mine. not exactly what is in Japanese on yours) Goes Forward and Reverse Turns left and right. Stops Two Speeds Double Wishbone Front Suspension NI-CAD Batteries Rechargeable system (Charger not included)

    Photo 2: Jet Fighter Car: (Reading Clockwise from top left) Double-wishbone Front Suspension Power Indicator Light Real Turbo performance for Super High Speed Racing Swing rear axle suspension High-grip Brock tire Side bumper High-Grip Brock tire Polycarbonate Impact Bumper (Plus it point out on mine *The Air-Duct - (Yellow No 5) and *RADIATOR (Alongside the swing rear axle Suspension)

    Controller: (Reading clockwise from left) Joy Stick Controls. Forward, reverse, Stop, and Turbo Power Power Indicator light Turn with Joy Control On/Off Switch (Plus mine has a pointer to *Telescoping Antenna)

    Photo 26: Diagrams (Clockwise top left to right) *Transmitter/Sender * 1x9v/006P/ Block * 8xAA/UM-3/R6/Mignon * Car/Auto Turn the knob in the arrowed direction and lift the battery cover up

    Photo 27: Illustration (1) Turn the ON/OFF Switch on the transmitter to "ON" position first, and extend the antenna fully. (2) Turn ON/OFF switch on the car to "ON" position (3) Turn the speed setting switch of the car to either "F" or "S". F: Fast Speed, S: Slow Speed (4) Move the Driving Control Stick forward, the car runs forward. Pull the stick back, the car runs backward. Release the stick, the car stops. Push the Steering Control Stick to your desired direction when the car is running forward or backward, the car turns to left or right. Release the stick, the car runs straight. The car will not steer unless it is being driven in forward or reverse. (5) Turn the Direction Trimmer to left or right if the car does not run straight. (6) Super-Hi speed is controlled by transmitter HOW TO USE TURBO SYSTEM Normal Drive: Move the driving control Stick forward up to first stop, the car runs at "Normal" speed. Turbo Drive: Then move the driving control stick further to second stop as illustrated, the car will accelerate to “Turbo" speed, which is twice as fast as normal running. *The Turbo system does not work in reverse. (7) Make sure ON/OFF Switch on car is in "OFF" position when not in use. (Indicator lamp goes out) (8) Make sure ON/OFF Switch on transmitter is in "OFF" position when not in use. (Indicator lamp goes out)

    DONT'S 1. Don't operate your car in dangerous places. 2. Don't put your car and transmitter near any sources of HEAT. 3. Avoid running through puddles of WATER. 4. Avoid all possible collisions. Check the road ahead and watch for obstacles. 5. Avoid your car and transmitter antenna touching together. 6. Never use a charger to charge regular alkaline, transistor or heavy duty batteries. 7. Don't run your car in the same vicinity as another radio-controlled car. 8. Don't leave your car and transmitter outside overnight. 9. Don't forget to remove batteries from your car and transmitter if you are not going to operate the car again that day.

    TAKE CARE TO 1. Turn the switches on both car and transmitter to "OFF" position when not in use. 2. Use fresh or fully charged Nickel-Cadmium batteries. The major cause of malfunction in radio-controlled cars is weak batteries. 3. Check battery terminals in both car and transmitter to make sure they have firm connections. 4. Keep your car clean. Remove dirt or other material that may collect around wheels or axles by gently brushing it away. An old toothbrush is handy for this purpose.
