Feature of a gyrocopter in that it can rise in the air from the runway and from unprepared land. To land the machine can almost vertically, also on an unprepared site within a radius of 50 meters.

It should be noted that the device can approach close to the enemy undetected, it can be heard at a distance of only 350 metres and the ability of low flying disguises it among the trees on the horizon.
