General

The OnyxStar aircrafts are autonomous aerial vehicles. An appropriate liability insurance is mandatory for operating them. Please check your insurance coverage before using these aircrafts, and adapt it to them accordingly.
You as a user / pilot are responsible for a safe operation and correct control of the aircraft.
The drones are not toys and only responsible & trained persons may operate them.
The OnyxStar drones are proposed either in self-assembly kits, pre-assembled, or ready-to-fly, pre-set and tested.
Among the construction, adjustments and parameterization work that needs to be done when building these aircrafts, a proper execution must be ensured.

Warnings:

  • Motors equipped with propellers are dangerous. If they are not used with particular care, they may cause accidents involving serious personal injuries.
  • Used batteries will lose power leading to less flying time, after a certain number of cycles.
  • Plastic propellers can become brittle & fragile through time and by sun exposure.

Please observe the following recommendations:

 
Please read the instructions for the relevant Flight Control electronics before proceeding. Be sure that the electronics and their software have been installed following the recommendations of the manufacturer.
The pilot must be able to fly the drone in any situation without aids, such as the GPS system.
Please read the information in the manual about your charger and transmitter.
Do not switch off the transmitter while the aircraft is ON and the propellers turn.
Model aircrafts can cause significant property damage and / or personal damage with improper handling.
Do not touch a moving propeller. This can cause severe injuries.
Never catch the drone out of the air! This may also lead to significant injury.
Never turn the transmitter off during the flight. The drone can crash and can cause considerable damage.
Leave the transmitter switched on while the drone is operating.
Be sure your transmitter is fully charged, before taking off.
When starting, landing and flying make sure to keep a sufficient distance from people, animals and objects.
Make sure the drone cannot take off unintentionally when making adjustments. If necessary remove the propellers for your own safety (such as during an engine test).
Do not expose the drone to rain, moisture, excessive heat, cold or vibration.
Do not control a drone if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Check the tightness of all connectors and screws as well as the mechanical integrity of the drone before each start / flight.
Never start operating after having discovered any kind of damage on the aircraft or your transmitter / receiver.
Fly with your drone always in sight, so you are able to rapidly react in case that a problem occurs or against any external influences.
