"They exist, but they're very expensive, and generally restricted under ITAR export controls.  The MicroraptorHD is an example product that has a version that operates at 1.3Ghz."

"Yes.  As you describe the plane will take off in the direction thrown and climb at the specified pitch angle to the specified altitude.  Once reached it will begin the mission at which point you could take over in manual. Thanks, Grant."

Arduplane AutoTakeoff

i am going to setup auto-takeoff for the first time. I dont know the location. can i just setup any mission at any location on mission planner with the first point being auto take off and then use that mission ?from reading the documentaion the plane will take off in the direction i throw it to the defined altitude. Then i can switch back to manual i guess.Is this correct ?See More

"I use FBWA too it's great. I have a flaps switch in my DX8 radio that you can adjust to add some (about 30%) up elevator (I don't have flaps so I just adjust the elevator part). You can use in-radio-mixing to use any switch for the same…"

"We always use auto takeoff although not specifically with the Finwing but with the Super Skysurfer. It's reliable and foolproof if done correctly. In 500+ day and night launches we've had a failure rate of about 0.012%. We've set it…"
