I hope this will come a bit sooner because I lost a drone on the mountains all in the name of adventurism. This brilliant drone parachute safety system that has been designed specifically for quadcopters, enabling you to bring your drone back to Earth gently when any problems may arise.
The SmartChutes system will come with everything needed to protect a multicopter weighing up to 4 lbs (1.81kg). The SmartChutes system will come with the following components:
• Carbon fiber parachute deployment canister (length 4.25″ – diameter 1.5″)

• Projected weight of entire system will be under 4 oz (113 grams)
*In order to use the SmartChutes system with the Phantom 2 and 3, you must use 8″ props for clearance. The Phantom 1 comes with 8″ props, but the Phantom 2 and 3 ship with 9″ props.
