Overview 

The Fruity Chutes Phantom 4 Automatic Emergency Drone Parachute is lightweight, easy to use, and reliable.  Designed with ease of use in mind, you can pack and load the parachute yourself; you do not need to send back to the manufacturer after use.  The parachute system can be used many times.  A small rigger jig is included to make folding and packing the parachute easy.

To launch the parachute the bundle provides the Skycat XS Flip Board parachute launcher.  The launcher has a high energy torsion spring that ejects the parachute down and away from the Phantom 4 quickly.  The launcher has no regulatory or transportation limitations so you can take your Phantom 4 with your Fruity Chutes parachute system anywhere you want.

The centerpiece of the parachute system is the Fruity Chutes Iris Ultra Light chute weighing just 1.7oz (49g). The parachute has a nominal rating of 4 lbs (1.8Kg) @ 15 feet per second (4.6mps) descent rate after deployment providing a nice gentle landing.  The parachute can easily work at heavier load weights of 3.6Kg or more.

The Phantom 4 bundle includes a carbon fiber flip board launcher that clips into one of the landing gear frames.  The launcher can be installed and removed without tools.  The back of the launcher provides a handy place to mount the battery and the ATS.

The parachute system is entirely self-contained, and not reliant on the Phantom 4 power so it works even if the copter’s battery has a complete failure.  The automatic trigger system (ATS) can detect if the drone suddenly falls, rolls, or flips.  Detection of a fall typically takes just 0.75 seconds, or about 16 feet of free fall.  By the time the pilot notices a problem, the parachute will already be ejected.

To make setting up faster a quick start guide is supplied with resource links to online tutorials and help resources.  QR codes are also provided to make navigation to help resources a smart phone click away.  And all Fruity Chutes products have a 2 Year warranty against manufacturing defects.

Accessories you might want

Iris Ultra Light 36 inch Parachute

Iris Ultra Light parachutes are perfect for applications where ultra low weight and compact packing volume are important.  While the parachute is very lightweight, strength is not sacrificed.  The parachute features 8 shroud lines each rated at a 200lb break strength.  The parachute bridle uses 725lb Spectra.  The overall break strength of the parachute is about 700lbs of pull force so you can have complete confidence that the parachute can handle any situation without failure.

Skycat XS Launcher

The lightweight carbon fiber launcher is spring deployed. The launcher uses a simple servo activated release which makes reloading easy. 

Automatic Trigger System Controller (ATS)

The ATS functionality is provided by the MAYDAY controller by MARS Parachutes.  The MAYDAY monitors your flight envelope and will automatically deploy the parachute if it detects out of bounds activity such as a sudden fall, loss of a rotor or motor, or other malfunction. Detection of a fall typically takes just 0.75 seconds, or about 16 feet of free fall. Flight controller connections are not required with the MAYDAY.

NOTE: Thorough ground testing of this product is strongly recommended before flying to be sure everything seems to work properly. Also follow the calibration procedure to be sure the unit can properly detect non-level flight attitudes.
