Drone and UAV Parachute Recovery

This category features our recovery products sold as a bundled system ideal for use in UAV, Drone or other types of UAS. There are several product types:

  • Fixed Wing Recovery Bundle - This bundle assumes the UAS is in forward flight for deployment. Put the recovery gear below a hatch. When the hatch open the airflow will quickly fetch the pilot chute, and that in turn drags the main parachute out. Choose the bundle based on weight. Systems are rated at 15fps max descent speed. Each system provides:
    • Iris Ultra chute (IFC) using Spectra shroud lines
    • Deployment bag sized for the main chute
    • Elliptical pilot chute
    • Y harness to provide a 2 point mount to your UAV at the Cg.
    • Length of nylon webbing to attach the main chute to the Y harness. Length is approximately 2x the chute diameter.
    • Length if smaller nylon webbing to attach the pilot chute to the deployment bag. The length is 2 x the chute diameter.
    • Quick links to attach the components together.

  • Skycat Parachute Launcher - This product assumes the UAS may be stationary and uses a lightweight spring loaded canister to quickly eject the parachute directly out. Ideal for Multicopters or Quadcopters that may hover. Choose the size based on weight. Systems are rated at 15fps max descent speed. Each system provides:
    • Iris Ultra chute (IFC) using Spectra shroud lines
    • The Skycat parchute launcher.
