Let's see some details. I tried setting up a parachute but more of a drag chute. It ended up putting too much stress on the air frame and where the boom mounted a crack formed in the fuse. Your setup looks pretty sweet.
Rough sounding landing.
What was the larger surface on the antenna tripod? I saw a small patch antenna at the top, then a rather large one about halfway up?
Very cool! I can think of many, many applications for this (signal loss w/ last resort landing, small landing zone landing, etc.)
You'll have to provide more details! I'd love to try this too! Thanks for sharing.
Like the rest, I'm interested in how you set this recovery system up.

Thanks Jim. Looking good.
that's just awesome... does it get open up by running airflow or did you use some kind of rocket? doesn't look like it, but i ask anyways. I would love to have one for my quad..
I agree with estebanflyer, how did you get it to shoot open?
Looks great.it would be perfect as a fail safe.Looking to find out more.
