The Skycat Parachute Launcher family is rated from 2.5Kg to 10Kg.
Skycat is a ballistic parachute recovery system primarily for quadcopters, multicopters, single rotor helicopters, or smaller fixed wing UAV. It is designed to reduce the impact energy of the drone in emergency situations to provide a safe landing, protect people on the ground, and save your airframe from serious damage. The patent-pending FUSE® technology ensures a fast and successful parachute ejection and safe landing, even when flying at low altitudes. Thanks to its compact size and weight, it's an easy addition to have on board. Skycat keeps you flying and makes people feel secure doing business with you.
AVAILABLE NOW - You can purchase the Skycat system now in our webstore!
Both the Harrier and Skycat feature:
BULLET-LIKE LAUNCH TRAJECTORY
To avoid entanglement, these systems eject the chute away from the airframe and propellers. The parachute releases the piston in a fraction of a second.
SMALL AND LIGHTWEIGHT
To achieve clean installation and minimum reduction of flight time, the Harrier and Skycat are designed to be small, light weight, and reliable parachute systems.
SCALEABLE AND ADAPTABLE
Both systems can be installed on almost any airframe. Multiple parachute sizes are available for small and large UAV's and up to 3 units can be installed to handle higher weight and with better redundancy.
FAILOVER BATTERY OPTION
If you want total independence of the UAVs flight power status, a dedicated battery can be used as an option. In addition, you can use multiple independent receivers, powered from same or different BECs, for added radio (launch command) channel reliability.
