It still takes off from a catapult and although it typically would be recovered by flying it into a net, it can belly land on a runway or reasonably flat surface if its underside is prepared with protective self-adhesive hard rubber stripes (similar to those used to protect door cars from parking spot dings), the chin-mounted Cloud Cap ball being retractable of course.

Many studies of soils in TMCF have reported persistently (near-)saturated conditions, which stand in sharp contrast to the more variable moisture regimes of the lower montane rain forests found below the average base of the cloud cap. This is confirmed by morphological differences between soils; transect studies generally note major changes when passing into the zone of frequent low cloud, the most striking of these being increased organic matter content, darker colors, and increased abundance of hydromorphic characteristics (Hetsch and Hoheisel 1976, Van Reuler 1987).
