5.2.1 Take-Off Area (Distance)


Use caution when operating the Meadowhawk around people, vehicles, trees and other obstructions. Only fly near or above crowds, airports or buildings with appropriate authorization.

Never attempt to operate the Meadowhawk nearby tall buildings/obstructions that do not offer a clear view of the sky (a minimum clearance of 100°).

Be sure to place the Meadowhawk on a level and stable surface before powering ON the Ground Station and the aircraft.


Step back approximately 26 feet (8 meters) behind the Meadowhawk.
