Patent pending mechanism

XS's catapult mechanism is designed to reduce stress to the servo. Losing power to the servo will not result in accidental parachute launch.

High efficiency

Launcher design and high packing density of our parachute options makes XS more efficient than competing systems. Due to optimized canopy design, our parachutes create more drag than 58" "round" parachute with larger diameter.

What's included

  • Launcher and servo
  • Parachute (two options available)
  • 3 meters of durable parachute line and a quick lock. Parachute line can easily withstand contact with the propellers. Optional shock cord can be made from the parachute line. It allows parachute to fly further, reducing the risk of entanglement.

What's required

  • Radio transmitter for parachute system.
  • Small and light receiver, we use Spektrum AR610.
  • Battery, for example 2S 350 mAh.
  • Voltage regulator for the receiver.

Technical Specs

  • XS launcher weight: 85 grams (not including receiver and battery).
  • Parachute weight: Opale 1.0 m2: 55 grams, Fruity IFC-36-SL: 65 grams.
  • Theoretical descent data (Phantom 3, Fruity 36-SL parachute): descent speed 4.1 m/s, impact energy 12J.
  • Flight time: According to our tests, full XS launcher setup reduces Phantom 3 flight time by 3 - 4 minutes.

Motor cut off

  • Launcher does not shut down motors, in the case of an emergency use "V" stick shut down, as described in Phantom 3 manual, and eject parachute.
  • Parachute eject is always the last option, in a flyaway situation try to regain control before ejecting parachute.

Launcher is locked in place by hooks at the bottom of the main plate. Just snap launcher in place and connect parachute with included quick lock.

Skycat tests

Our test flights are carried out using modified Spektrum DXe radio with external launch button and Spektrum AR-610 receiver. We make and sell these systems from request, drop us an email if you are interested!

We have tested Phantom 3 with this system up to 380 meters without any parachute launch or copter's controls and video feed issues.Tests were carried out on an open runway. Radio and copter were both at 1,5 meters above ground.
