New Harrier Parachute Launcher: Light, Compact, and Easy to Use!

Ask and you shall receive! For some time, our Fruity Chutes friends have been asking us to manufacture a small spring loaded launcher perfect for fixed wing and small multicopters, like the DJI Mavic Pro and 3DR Solo. In answer, Fruity Chutes is proud to present Harrier Drone Parachute Launcher!

Harrier Launcher With Generic Mount

Our Core Design Objectives

Our core design objectives for the Harrier launcher were light weight, compact, ease of use, and reliability. The Harrier features a thin wall carbon fiber canister, lightweight nylon components, and a high energy compression spring. Because we wanted the new launcher to be as compact and light as possible, we designed a new line of parachutes called the “Iris Ultra Zero.” The IFC-30-SUZ (30 inch) parachute weighs just 27.7 grams and is rated at 1.25kg @ 4.6 m/s! Currently the “Iris Ultra Zero” parachute is only available with the Harrier launcher. The complete 40mm Harrier with the IFC-30-SUZ parachute weighs just 81 grams and is only 103mm tall.

Coming February 2018 - Harrier Mount for DJI Mavic Pro!

The beauty of this little launcher is that it is perfect for not only multicopter drones but also fixed wing UAS! We are currently offering three sizes, but will grow the product line to include many sizes and diameters.
