Drone Rescue Systems has unveiled a new parachute system for the Matrice 300 commercial drone from DJI.
By developing the DRS-M300, Drone Rescue Systems has created a further parachute system for this drone, which is available now.
“Based on the technical performance of the DJI M300, we expect this flight system to match the success of the other DJI models. So it was obvious to us to develop a parachute system for this new model as well”, said Andreas Ploier, CEO and co-founder of Drone Rescue Systems GmbH.
Similar to the DJI models already established on the market, the DJI M300 enables a wide range of industry-specific applications. “As with other flight systems, the aim here is to protect the drone with the sometimes cost-intensive cameras and sensor systems in the event of malfunction,” continued Ploier.
“We want to ensure that the drone can be safely recaptured even in an emergency, including beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).
“With our parachute system, this is always possible due to the electronics being completely independent of the flight controller.”
Drone Rescue Systems said it worked to ensure payload, flight time and range were minimally affected by the parachute.
Ploier added: “”We will also launch a smaller system, the DRS-M300-S2, with a total weight of 440g.
“This parachute system has slightly smaller dimensions because the parachute will be smaller.
“However, we expect that most customers will tend to prefer the S1 version because the kinetic energy at impact is even lower than that of the S2 version,”
