The ElevonX Scorpion elastic launcher was engineered from the bottom up with safety, durability and ease of use in mind. Foldable construction allows a single operator to prepare it for the launch and access remote areas using our launche rtransport bag. Redundant safety features and supplied check list guide you to a safe launch every time.
“Safety first” was our moto when designing the ElevonX Scorpion elastic launcher. Every step of the launch procedure was thoroughly examined and appropriate safety measures built into the launcher or included into the check-list guided safety procedure that allows the operator to safely and sucessfully launch the UAV.
