Fruity Chutes manufactures premium quality parachutes for Aerospace, Consumers, Institutional, University and Corporate customers who demand exceptional quality, have exacting requirements and expect exceptional service. Our parachutes are used for all types of Rocketry, Drones, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) Parachutes, Multicopter Parachutes, Drones Parachutes and RC Control Aircraft Parachutes, and Balloon Research. Our customers include major US corporate and government customers such as NASA, Boeing, AAI Textron, Space X, Google, MIT, US Armed Forces, Silent Falcon and many more. We've been making parachutes since 2007 and have sold to over 3000 customers, in over 50 countries, all over the world.
We have a huge product line of over 40 parachute models, four different parachute product lines, over 150 accessory items like harnesses and shock cords and other hardware. We've also made product selection even easier by combining easy to understand bundled packages designed for specific application groups like Drones, Fixed Wing UAV's, and Ballistic Parachute Recovery Systems and others. We've done the hard work, all you need to do is choose a single item to solve your parachute recovery needs!
Best yet most all of our products are stock items and ship in just a few days. Or we can custom make you exactly what you want - you choose the size, colors as well as many other options. All our product are US made from US materials.
Couple one of our Iris Ultra Parachutes with a Skycat Parachute Launcher (drone under 10kg) or the Peregrine IDS (drone more than 10kg). The lightweight and strength will give the best performance possible when compared to the chute weight.
The Iris Ultra parachute with Spectra lines gives unmatched performance vs weight. We provide Fixed Wing Recovery Bundles with everything you need for a quick and easy set up.
Our Classic Elliptical parachute is available in sizes 12" up to 120". For larger rockets, with spacial concerns, we have the amazing Iris Ultra parachute from 30" up to 192" (16 feet). The unique toroidal design results in a Cd of 2.2 or more! Meaning you can use a size smaller chute for the same load carrying performance.
We have several ballistic parachute deployment systems products to choose from. The Peregrine IDS (shown above) uses a small CO2 cartridge to deploy the parachute out and away from the UAV. The Skycat Drone Parachute launcher uses a spring to eject the parachute. Finally some systems like rockets and UAV's use a traditional deployment bag with a pilot chute. We also have the Peregrine CO2 election device.
To connect the parachute to the vehicle we have a wide array of shock cords, harness and connecting hardware. Materials include Nylon, Spectra and Kevlar. We carry many types and sizes of material to optimize the strength and weight to provide an ideal solution for both small and large vehicles.
Tethers and cutters are used to restrain the parachute opening even after deployment. We carry the Tender Descender recovery tether, and the Archtype Rocketry cable cutter. Finally we carry various electronic goods as well as he 3Dogs Rocketry Wire kits used to wire rocket avionics bays.
Thought I would send you some feedback about the fruity chute I received and have flown about half dozen times now. In a nut shell, the chute is really great and I am very pleased with its performance. I particularly like the thin fabric which packs great into a small compartment (2.5" dia.).

Hi Gene, Just wanted to let you know that I got the parachutes today and I must say…WOW! I am impressed! I expected that they would be nice; I had no idea that they would be THIS nice! I am way more than just pleased and thought you should know!
As a former member of the US Parachute Team, and as a FAA Licensed Senior Parachute Rigger, I am exceptionally picky about parachutes. The Fruity Chutes are not only made to manned parachute quality, but offer amazing efficiency - which is why they're the only parachutes in my rockets!
