a lot of people launch from gnarly terrain, steep hillsides, landing on a boat, and many other reasons. besides just being ready for any situation is always good, no? but practice at your own risk, you dont want to trigger the lg down.I'm not sure if i understand the need to hand catch a uav? If someone can explain it to me it would be appreciated. I just figure it has a landing gear... Land on that haha. =)
hmmmm, the only times I have ever had to catch a multirotor have been when the GPS signal went bad, or the mag got interference, i personally wouldnt bother catching the inspire, the props are too close to the booms for my hands to get in without getting cut.
the only possible reason would be if th gear got stuck up and the cuad was perfectly under control, otherwise id do my best at landing it and take the damage
