Ask and you shall receive! For some time our Fruity Chutes friends have been asking for us to manufacture a small spring loaded launcher perfect for fixed wing and small multicopters, like the DJI Mavic Pro and 3DR Solo. Drumroll please! … Fruity Chutes is proud to present the Harrier Drone Parachute Launcher!
Our core design objectives for the Harrier launcher were lightweight, compact, ease of use and reliability. The Harrier features a thin wall carbon fibre canister, lightweight nylon components, and a high energy compression spring. Because we wanted the new launcher to be as compact and light as possible we designed a new line of parachutes called the “Iris Ultra Zero.” The IFC-30-SUZ (30 inch) parachute weighs just 27.7 grams and is rated at 1.25 kg @ 4.6 m/s! Currently, the “Iris Ultra Zero” parachute is only available with the Harrier launcher. The complete 40 mm Harrier with the IFC-30-SUZ parachute weighs just 81 grams and is only 103 mm long.
The beauty of this little launcher is that it is perfect for not only copter drones, but fixed-wing UAS! We are currently offering 3 sizes but will grow the product line to include many sizes and diameters.
Harrier 40-30: Length 4.06 in, Rating 1.25 kg @ 4.6 m/s, Total Weight 81.3 g, $310.00 Harrier 40-36: Length 5.06 in, Rating 1.8 kg @ 4.6 m/s, Total Weight 128.4 g, $330.00 Harrier 40-42: Length 6.05 in, Rating 2.5 kg @ 4.6 m/s, Total Weight 153.6 g, $352.00
