Visually inspect UAV for a damage after each flight.

If a propellers are damaged, you can replace it yourself using spare parts and tools from the kit.

If structural damage to the airframe or systems is detected, contact Geoscan support.

After 80 flights it is recommended to send your UAV to the manufacturer for inspection and maintenance.


Geoscan 401 complex (without battery) are recommended to be stored in a transport containers in dry rooms at a temperature of 5 to 25 °C and relative humidity not more than 80% without condensation. Shelf life - 2 years.

Batteries should be stored in a cool and dry place, without direct sunlight, at a temperature of 5 to 25 °C and a relative humidity of 80% without condensation. The optimum voltage level when placing the battery to storage: 38,5 V. Shelf Life - 1 year.
