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. Here is a summary of the product types:

  • Harrier Drone Parachute Launcher The Harrier product line raises the bar for high performance, light weight, and low cost for Drone Ballistic Parachute Launchers. Key features of the Harrier product line are:
    • Light Weight - Just 81 grams!
    • New Parachute - To have the smallest and lightest launcher possible we developed a new line of parachute called the "Iris Ultra Zero" parachutes.
    • High Energy Spring - Powerful springs to get the highest possible ejection velocity and a low weight.
    • Patent Pending Parachute Release - New low profile patent pending spring release mechanism.
    • Ease of Use - Use a simple tool to push down the launcher piston which "clicks" into place.
    • Use for Drones and Fixed Wing - Short and compact launcher make the Harrier an ideal solution for Fixed Wing UAV's. All the harrier launchers will feature short versions that will fit into the low profile fixed with airframes.
    • Many sizes, many diameters!
  • DJI Drone Parachute Bundles - These product bundles include everything you need for DJI Drones. All bundles include:
    • Parachute Launcher
    • Iris Ultra Light Parachute
    • Harnesses and Rigging
    • MAYDAY Failsafe
  • 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.

    • Iris Ultra chute (IFC) using Spectra shroud lines
    • The Skycat parchute launcher.
    • Y harnesses to provide a multi-point mount to your UAV to keep it level under descent.
    • Length of webbing to attach the main chute to the Y harness. Length is approximately 2x the chute diameter.
    • Quick links to attach the components together.

  • Drone Electronics - Products specialized for the drone and UAV market. Rocketry may benefit from these products as well!
  • Fixed Wing Recovery Bundle - This bundle assumes the UAV 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 your UAV weight. Systems are rated at 15fps max descent speed. Each system provides:
