Parachutes for DJI Mavic
The DJI Mavic weighs less than 2kg and is therefore light enough to be legally allowed to fly in several countries without a parachute.
However, there might be situations where you may want a parachute anyway, be it for flying over animals or humans you don't want to hurt or not damaging historical buildings underneath.
There are two parachutes systems designed specifically for the Mavic :
- Fruity Chutes DJI Mavic Pro Parachute Launcher $310.00
Developed on the base of the Fruity Chutes Harrier launcher, this system is fully autonomous. it has its own power supply and its own automatic deployment module. It consists of :
- A small & lightweight Li-Po battery
- A Harrier launcher operated by a compression spring
- A 30" (76cm) Iris Ultra Light parachute weighing 0.98oz (27,7g)
The ejection tube is 4" (103mm) long and 1.57" (40mm) wide
Total system weight : about 140g
A very reassuring system as it will work even if the Mavic's battery fails and the drone is not powered anymore. It is also pretty easy to install, only a Phillips screwdriver is required and it can be mounted and unmounted quickly thaks to its hinge & pin system. Only for DJI MAvic Pro, not DJI Mavic nor Mavic 2.
- VectorSave™10 Mavic $349.00
Manufactured in Finland by VectorHeli, the VectorSave™10 has been designed especially for the DJI Mavic. Alike the Fruity Chutes parachutes, this is a fully autonomous system, with its own power supply in case of drone's battery failure and its own automatic deployment board that will most often trigger the parachute faster than a human. The VectorSave™10 can optionnaly be equipped with an additional remote control. The whole system weighs 2.6oz (75g)and the flight time with the VectorSave™10 installed is about 20 minutes.
