4.379 New (added in 4.3) UASs


Recommended Posts



Is there documentation somewhere on how to use the new UASs (Libelle, Switchblade, etc.)?


I've trawled the manual unsuccessfully.


The Wiki has some detail but starts with a mass of buttons that "may or may not apply" to individual types.


I'm looking at the Libelle specifically and I have no idea how to launch it (as opposed to deploy it). I can deploy it, and then plot a route for it but is that the correct way to "launch" it? Going to F3 and hitting "Z" also seems to make it take off.


SpaceBar and Shift + T don't work.


I suspect I'll need to do trial and error and then build a scenario for others?

Found it.


Plot a route on the map then return to F8 and you'll see an extra icon at the bottom of Mission Control.


Next, I tried the switchblade - happy to launch and give a route to, but in manual mode it refuses to stop / loiter - no idea how to target while traveling at over 100Kph.


I'll start building this Tutorial "UAS Range" scenario.

Terry made a UAS user's manual for ADF members.

We'd incorporate it in a future SB Pro release as a supplemental document. But maybe you can get it from him already.


That's probably Crown Copyright - since he no doubt made it with ADF resources and while being paid.

I think he wrote it after retiring. We also have documents from you, right? Wouldn't that be a similar case?


No because:


1. Used SB Pro PE as the reference.


2. I did them on the weekends / my free time.
