    Easy Operation

    One of the main advantages of the C200R catapult system is its ease of transport, assembly, maintenance and use. Its lightweight and compact design allows it to be carried by only one person. Thanks to its modular composition, foldable legs and rope length adjustment it can be assembled in a short time.

    In addition, the detailed embention maintenance and user manuals will provide the required knowledge to carry out the mounting, maintenance and system configuration in a few steps and always with the disponibility of our support team to give a helping hand.


    The state of the art in safety. Our user manuals will provide you easy and simple protocols to develop the UAV catapult launch operation in the safest way. Besides, C200R Catapult has been developed according to the highest security standards with smart safety features, as the safety pin.

    Taking into account parameters such as the wind direction, the surface type and the distances to obstacles, the danger area is defined during the operation, ensuring operator safety.

    Carry out your takeoffs for a wide range of aircraft layouts, UAV weights and stall speeds. The propulsion system is composed of a rope with great elastic properties, managing the stress of the rope, speed control is possible.

    Furthermore, embedded servo permits to remotely launch the catapult, so it is possible to launch fixed wings, VTOLs and other drones from the safe area.

    At Embention, flexibility and customization is one of our business foundations. In the same way that our Veronte Autopilot 1x is compatible with all kinds of UAV, C200Rope Catapult can be tailored to custom UAV needs.

    It is possible to customize the rope prop or rail length in the UAV catapult so the system permits performing launches at different speeds at the time that drone coupling can be customized to fit UAV shape.
