Launch off balcony?


I am new to APM copter firmware, I have a 3dr iris+, works great. I can do auto mission, loiter, RTL.

Is there a way to launch the thing off a balcony? I have s small balcony, about 4’x8’, and it is not on ground level.

If I want to do this in firmware myself, how should I start?

Thanks for your help.

check out “throw mode”, once you understand it, and it’s safe for surroundings, just fling it out :slight_smile:

cool, where can I find documentation on this?

until it’s in released and in normal documentation, you can follow this ;
