Multicopter Parachute Bundle Rigging

Our various recovery bundles provide harnesses and shock cords for securing the parachute recovery system to the drone. The illustrations below show how the components are arranged for both single and dual parachute rigging.

This setup and the labeled lengths work for all our parachute systems, including the Harrier Drone Parachute Launcher, the PUAVL Ballistic Launcher, our Fixed Wing Recovery Bundles, and more.

Parachute Rigging Components

All of our drone bundles come with these basic rigging components:

  • 1. Main shock cord (or riser) made with either Spectra or Nylon.

  • 2. Multipoint harness to connect to the UAV in order to keep it level while under the parachute. This can be a two, three or four point harness using three harnesses or several Y harnesses made with Spectra, Nylon or Kevlar. We can do custom lengths as well - just let us know what you need.

  • 3. Quick Links and wire ties. The quick links are used to interconnect the harness, shock cord and the parachute. They may also be used to connect to the copter booms directly. Alternatively, you can use the end loops to hook around the boom and then use wire ties to keep them from moving.

Dual Parachute Configuration

You can even use dual parachutes by providing extra harnesses to separate the parachutes and using a few more quick links. Each parachute can be launched from its own deployment canister. In some cases, both parachutes can be loaded into the same canister if done with care.
