Scout – FBWA Takeoff

In FBWA the launcher should pick up the Scout above their head with their index finger in the finger hold while using their other fingers to stabilize. Never put body parts near the propeller when the battery is plugged in!  At this time the Pilot should have the transmitter in hand. Throttle up to 20% while keeping a firm hold on the scout. Throw the Scout firmly at an angle of about 20 degrees with the wind at the nose of the plane. After the release, increase throttle to full 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.
