ParaZero just announced a new “SafeAir” parachute system designed for the DJI Mavic Pro and Phantom series. The company already made parachute systems for larger drone models such as the Matrice 600 series but will now be launching similar systems for the smaller DJI drones. One benefit of this latest model is that the parachute is re-packable by the end-user and thus can be re-used. This system does not only work when you encounter a total malfunction of the drone and it comes falling out of the sky but it also when it detects excessive roll angle, in which case it will shut down the propellers before deploying itself.
