Wat overpriced..specially chinese made
Much less you, much more drone.
Great video! It’s an interesting topic, but the technology is clearly not ready. What an epic fail 😂 Plus, the price is just ridiculous!
It feels like the company has no idea on what they are doing. They just made a product without any knowledge at all! Why are they using the Futaba? The FrSky taransis x-lite would be a much better choice if you couldn’t custom build a module. Non-changable LiPo?!? What! For this extreme price range would I expect a much better product from people who know what they are doing. The positive thing is that it’s a step in the right direction. Maybe more people will try to make parachute systems for drones. I beleive I could create a more reliable, user friendly and much cheaper device. That’s bad since I have just been building some hobby drones for less than a year.
The extra weight and wind drag profile may lead to a failure or loss.
Any experience with the Mantis parachute?
What an insane racket! An injection-molded casing, a few metal springs and a strap, a parachute, a control-board, a lipo battery you can’t even swap, a price tag of TWO to THREE TIMES what the high end drone itself costs — which is extra insulting considering it doesn’t even have a custom triggering transmitter — and it doesn’t even really work!
I think it is a great topic and will get better and also cheaper. I really would like to see more testing footage for the Indemnis system or the skycat pro system. The key issue of having a working parachute on a drone, you need to overcome the tangling problem with a deployment distance to the propellers in any situations. Plus the Indemnis systems attaches the parachute main rope on an extended tube to avoid tangling. ParaZone completely fails on this issue. And I also hope that pricing will come down to make it more accessible to a wider mass. 2700$ for a mavic pro recovery system and 5000$ for inspire is way too much, even for some professionals. Skycat pro systems seem here more accessible.
Please do more testing.
Would love to see these actually work and sell for a 1/4 of the price! If the goal is to encourage people to fly their drones safely Transport Canada and the FAA should look into approving more affordable alternatives.
