E384 – Auto Takeoff

On this page, we will take a look at performing an Automatic Takeoff.

The Launcher should pick the E384 up and hold it, fully prepared to launch. Never put body parts near the propeller when the battery is plugged in!

The Launcher should communicate to the Ground Station Manager that he is prepared. The Ground Station Manager shall then change the mode to Auto, using either the RC transmitter or the actions tab under the HUD. The Ground Station Manager should confirm that the mode is Auto. The Launcher will then wait eight seconds for the E384 to reach full speed. The Launcher will then proceed by throwing the E384 firmly at an angle of approximately 15 degrees. Always throw the E384 against the wind for best results.

Now let’s take a look at how to perform a FBWA landing.
