Push and release mode control to toggle between Hour Meter, Tachometer, Job Timer, and Service Alarm (SVC TIME, SVC SET).

Hour Meter - Indicated by "TOT TIME" on display (non-resettable accumulated running hours.)

Tachometer - Upon entering this function, you will see "P1", "P2", or "P3" for 3 seconds on the right-hand side of the display. This is the current programmed firing pattern. To access MAXTACH (highest engine RPM), be in the RPM mode and hold the mode button down for at least three seconds. To erase the high RPM, continue holding down for at least 9 seconds (will see 0000). To change the firing pattern, be in the RPM mode and hold the mode button down for more than 10 seconds, then release the button on the desired firing pattern ("P1", "P2", or"P3").

Job Timer - To view the JOB TIME, push and release the mode button until the display reads "JOB TIME". To reset to zero, depress the mode button for three seconds (time will clear to 0.0)

Service Time - This is the time built up since your last maintenance. To view the Service Time, push and release the mode button until the display reads "SVC TIME". When this time exceeds what you set in SVC SET, the display will start flashing (alarming you to perform maintenance). After the maintenance is performed, hold down the mode button for 3 seconds. This will clear the SVC TIME to 0.0 and the alarm will stop flashing. You are now ready to go toward your next maintenance interval.

Service Set - This is where you set the desired maintenance interval. To view the set maintenance interval, push and release the mode button until the display reads "SVC SET". To set a different service interval, push and hold the mode button until the desired interval appears on the display. Then simply release the mode button and that is your new service interval. (The mode button must be held down for at least 3 seconds before the Service Set intervals begin to increment.

DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or call TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
