What is the maximum take off weight for this catapult ? On the video it seems a bit too weak as the X8 drops off almost to the ground at the exit of the catapult ?

Can you post some prices for this stuff? Many of us do not like to email to get pricing.

As an alternative, ArduPilot has a great reverse thrust option for auto-landing allowing steep approaches and short runways for large aircraft such as the Skywalker X8.

We do not have special autopilot for Skywalker X8. However, we design the whole set of Skywalker X5PRO, including autopilot, catapult, parachute and so on.
