“Before purchasing a dragon, make sure to check the safety ratings from the National Dragon Transport Safety Administration.”


Thank you for purchasing the 2019 Volksdrachen Puk®! The stylish, compact, and efficient Puk sets a new standard in serpentine design.

Your dragon features:

  • All-wing drive
  • Tail-mounted backup camera
  • Pitot tube airspeed indicator
  • 11.5 inch bio-electrical touchscreen with Bluetooth support
  • Sail-fin antenna
  • Air lane-keeping assist
  • Parking claw suitable for most surfaces
  • Ten airbags with bronchial inflation
  • Adaptive cruising altitude control
  • Power steering

If you purchased the SX trim level or higher, you also have:

  • Authentic scale upholstery
  • Qi-compatible smartphone charging (with genuine qi energy)
  • Integrated navigation with GPS sensor fusion
  • Rear spoiler wings
  • 3 USB ports
  • Sporty racing stripes

Warnings

Make sure to adjust mirrors and horns before riding.

Wear seatbelts at all times.

Texting while riding is dangerous and is illegal in the state of California. Keep your eyes on the sky at all times.

Fangs and claws are sharp. Volksdrachen Group are not responsible for injuries incurred through improper handling of clawtips.

Operation

The current fuel level is indicated by the dial on the right-hand side of the dashboard display. Fill the fire breath tank only with HD5 grade propane.

The Puk has three modes of operation: Standard, Sport, and Eco. Use the dial adjacent to the left wing to adjust the mode while riding. Eco mode maximizes gliding efficiency, while Sport mode gives you that extra boost of power when you want to feel the wind in your face.

The spare wing is located underneath the rear storage compartment. Do not fly more than 200 miles or faster than 100 miles per hour while using the spare wing. (Spare wing not included in all models.)

Blowouts

In the event of a bronchial sac blowout, the most important thing to remember is to stay calm. DO NOT PULL BACK OR RELEASE THE REINS—this is likely to result in an out-of-control tailspin. Instead, try to maintain stable flight while slowly dropping altitude.

Once you have landed safely, do not attempt to repair the sac yourself. Walk your dragon to the nearest Volksdrachen-certified repair centre or call a carrier.
