Safer flying - DJI drones can fly over people in Canada with parachutes


Accidental deployment. Parachute tangles props. Drone falls on people.

Yup. That works! :wink:

According to the companies’ website. The parachute actively turns off the motors before launching the parachute.


… as in when things don’t go according to how things are supposed to. :wink:

As in “Malfunction”.

Curious - how did you find the website?

Dustin just tested it - it’s all a bit buttock-clenching…

That was close!

Wondering what damage would there have been if it was concrete below.

I think you need more than a badge!

What a load of crap that was/is !!

Add the $399 cost for the Mavic … OUCH ! and No Thanks


It really was! Had that been a 300ft drop test instead of 350, that Phantom would be toast… as would anybody standing under it.

According to their website, it drops (average) 31ft before deployment… but that was more like 150 (and then didn’t look to deploy fully). It ain’t cheap, messes with the GPS and reduces battery life by about 10%.

Nice idea, but not there yet I don’t think.

Anyone that wasn’t happy about the price of the drone parachute in the other post, check this one out:

Moved your post over to the previous thread. One can have too many threads about drone parachutes. :wink:
