The bundle includes the Skycat XS parachute launcher and the Fruity Chutes light weight parachute for the DJI Phantom 4, Phantom 4 Pro, and Phantom 4 Advanced. The bundle features excellent drag to weight ratio and is easy to mount without any tools, in just a few seconds!

XS launcher is snapped in place just like the flight battery and parachute is connected with a quick link. Pilot can now easily remove launcher if necessary, even at the field!

The kit includes a launcher and a parachute. A radio system used to launch the parachute is required, but not included.

Features:

  • Patent pending mechanism
  • The XS catapult mechanism is designed to reduce stress to the servo. Losing power to the servo will not result in accidental parachute launch.
  • High efficiency
  • Launcher design and high packing density of our parachute options makes XS more efficient than competing systems. The Iris Ultra parachute canopy shape produced higher drag than a much larger flat canopy and at lower weight.

What's included

  • Launcher and servo
  • Choose from three different light weight parachutes.
  • Spectra harness, Spectra shock cord, and quick links. Spectra shock cord can easily withstand contact with the propellers.
