Drones have become one of the most fun pieces of tech out there. Coupled with a GoPro or action camera, these contraptions can fly to extraordinary heights and take some of the most unbelievable photos. However, they’re also incredibly vulnerable and could break easily if they were to fall from extreme heights.
For those of you who want to keep their drone (and innocent bystanders) unharmed, the DJI Mavic Pro Parachute Launcher is a drone-saver. With the DJI Mavic Pro Parachute Launcher you get a lightweight parachute that ensures a gentle landing. Just how lightweight are we talking? The Fruity Chutes Iris Ultra Light parachute lives up to its name, weighing under 28 grams (0.96 oz).
It’s equipped with an Automatic Trigger System (ATS) fail safe that can automatically detect your drone’s failure, ejecting the parachute quickly to avoid a disaster. It can detect if the drone falls or gets unbalanced in 0.75 seconds, or about 16 feet of free fall.
What’s really great is that the entire parachute system is self-contained and has an independent power source so it will work even if your DJI Mavic Pro battery dies.
You can get this drone parachute for your DJI Mavic Pro on Fruity Chutes for $489 with two color options: orange/white or orange/black.
