IMPORTANT! Operation procedures differ for each vehicle type. E.g. some of them may start from the ground, others require manual take-off to a safe altitude. Please read carefully the vehicle operation guide and UgCS “How to connect…” manuals. Pilot MUST know how to act in emergency situations at all times.
Note: safety is always a responsibility of the pilot!!!
