Complete Autonomy Launch-to-Landing
The E386 offers launch and recovery capability unprecedented in its class, capable of fully autonomous takeoff, flight, and landing. Long endurance aircraft often require a larger space for recovery. The E386 overcomes this limitation by diving steeply toward the recovery zone and using reverse throttle to bring the aircraft quickly to a stop. An onboard laser rangefinder ensures an accurate flare and soft touchdown. If you have a 25 by 65 meter (27 by 71 yards) area free of major obstacles, you can land the E386 by simply entering the beginning and end of the clear area into Mission Planner.
