[1] The addition of magnifying optics, modifications to firmware, or removal of filters can increase the laser exposure level to Class 3B. [2] The range is software limited in the stock version to 50 m for use with the Piccolo autopilot. [3] The stationary range is 0 to 3,280 ft (1,000 m) to a typical target and 6,560 ft (2,000 m) maximum to a reflective target. During flight testing over varied terrain, a practical maximum range of 400 m was achieved, which allows for vegetation, terrain undulation, and aircraft motion.
