Hi Joshua, this looks liek a nice product. it would be nice to get a (step by step) explanation on how it works and indeed a video of it in operation. It it works, it is indeed quite competitive in terms of pricing.

Hey Hugues and Acorn,

Thanks for the comments.  I'm currently just getting off the ground so I'm in the process of making more videos. Clearer step by step explanations and much more!  I'm hoping along with my video releases the first batch of customers will make videos and blogs as well to help show the industry they work.

Thanks,

JJ

Hello Guy,

We are trying to fill that gap in the affordable parachute recovery systems market. The reason why we didn't build our own deployment mechanism or setup to sell with the products is because everyone is going to have different needs and wants. Most owners of UAS are very tech savy and enjoy the DIY/Calibration part about making their system run just right. So that's why we believe leaving the testing of a release mech should be left up to the customer because everyone owns different air frames and systems.  We have customers who have bought these products and used them with much success on their system.

For example here is a previous customer who bought just the parachute to use for a fixed-wing plane with great results:

Some of the "Proven Design" wording also refers to the fact that the design has been proven on rockets, drag cars, rocket cars, and much more.  With previous customers experiences using them with Unmanned Vehicle Systems as well we feel confident in saying its a proven design.

cool , what about the launch system for the chute? or its just simply ejected by springs?

Comment by Joshua Johnson on May 22, 2015 at 10:40pm
Thanks Cliff!
The pop chute helps eject it. Some users of fixed wing planes and model airfraft have had success with and without the pop chute. Each user will have to decide and set up their own release mech. Most find great success using a servo to pull the pin on the pack.

Yes, it would be great to see a complete video test, it is too few information.
