| Date: Nov 15, 2014 | Comments: 0
We are happy to introduce the IFC-30-S chute! It can handle loads of up to 2.3kg @ 6m/s, or for UAV use 1.3Kg @ 4.6m/s.
We've been asked a few times for smaller Iris chutes for lighter weight recovery uses. So we are happy to introduce the IFC-30-S chute! It can handle loads of up to 2.3kg @ 6m/s, or for UAV use 1.3Kg @ 4.6m/s. This makes it ideal for smaller and lighter systems. And best yet - it weighs just 51 grams! With 11 different Iris sizes now we can handle UAS weights from as light 1.3Kg up to 51Kg! Below are the product details:
Iris Ultra Compact Parachute (Spectra Lines and Kevlar bridle):
Iris Ultra Compact parachutes are perfect for applications where ultra low weight and compact packing volume are important such as UAV applications. Packing volume assumes a packing density of .18 oz / cu" which is typical of a deployment bag. Traditional fold and wrap has a packing density of about 0.13.
