E384 – FBWA Takeoff

In FBWA the Launcher holds the E384 up, keeping the propeller as far away as possible. One hand is placed on the bottom of the fuselage near the camera opening to guide the throw. The other hand is the launching hand. The launching hand is placed on the tail, with the index finger or more on the back of the tail. At this time the Pilot should have the transmitter in hand. Throttle up to 60%. Throw the E384 firmly at an angle of about 15 degrees with the wind at the nose of the plane. After the release, increase throttle and pull up on the elevator to climb. Climb to about 100m. After climbing to a safe altitude, the mode may be changed for autonomous flight. Reference Transmitter Modes for clarity.

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