Parachutes offer a quaint but effective safety measure for commercial drone operations, particularly those flying near people or with expensive payloads.
UK drone retailer and DJI distributor Heliguy has today confirmed plans to sell ParaZero’s SafeAir parachutes, which can be used with a range of DJI drones to improve safety and minimise damage in the case of a flight failure.
ParaZero’s SafeAir parachutes are designed to work with:
- M200 Series. Compatible with DJI Matrice 200, Matrice 200 V2, Matrice 210, Matrice 210 V2 and Matrice 210 RTK. It is not compatible with the Matrice 210 RTK V2 model.
- M600 Pro. Compatible with different antenna configurations including D-RTK model.
- DJI Phantom 4 (excluding RTK model).
- Mavic Pro Series.
- Mavic 2 series, including the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual and Zoom (excluding modular accessories).
The SafeAir system monitors the drone’s key flight parameters for anomalies. The parachute deploys automatically in the case of a catastrophic flight failure, protecting those below and reducing the risk of payload and drone damage.
