Harness

Fruity Chutes - Harness

We provide harnesses using Nylon, Spectra, or Kevlar. A harness is used as a multi-point connection directly to the airframe. Generally you use either a Y harness, or several straight harnesses to make a multi-point connection. For UAS use a 3 or 4 point connection may be needed to keep it level Material advantages are:

  • Kevlar is heat resistant - use Kevlar near the ejection charge where it's needed. Most rockets require a Kevlar harness.
  • Spectra has even more strength per weight than Kevlar, but is not heat resistant. However it is very light weight and tangle resistant. It is ideal for UAS.
  • Nylon is lower cost, and had some stretch to lessen the opening shock.
Size your harness to allow for 6" to 12" to hang out of the airframe making connection easy to the shock cord. On UAS allow a length that provides a center point well above the airframe. All our harnessed feature:
  • All harnesses feature pre-sewn loops
  • All stitching is done with Kevlar thread.
  • Use a single Y harness for a to point connection. Use several for 4 point connections.
  • Use several straight harnesses for 3 point connections.
