Parachute Manufacturers for Drones, Rockets, UAV, Research
Fruity Chutes manufactures premium quality parachutes for Aerospace, Consumers, Institutional, University and Corporate customers who demand exceptional quality, have exacting requirements and expect exceptional service. Since 2007 our parachutes have established a solid track record for use in unmanned applications such as Rocketry, Drones, Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) Parachutes, Drone Parachutes, Multicopter Parachutes, RC Control Aircraft Parachutes, and Balloon Research. Our customers include major US corporate and government customers such as NASA, Boeing, AAI Textron, Space X, Google, MIT, US Armed Forces, Zipline, Matternet, Silent Falcon, Quest UAV and many more. Our parachute have been used by over 4000 customers, in over 50 countries, and on every continent on the earth.
We have a huge product line of over 200 parachute models. This is split between four different parachute product lines optimized for different uses like Rocketry, Drones and more. Along with the parachutes we have over 150 accessory items like harnesses and shock cords and other hardware. For drones we have special drone parachutes and parachute launchers. We've also made product selection fast by combining easy to understand bundled packages designed for specific application groups like Drones, Fixed Wing UAV's, and Ballistic Parachute Recovery Systems and others. We've done the hard work, all you need to do is choose a single item to solve your parachute recovery needs!
Best yet most all of our products are stock items and ship in just a few days. Or we can custom make you exactly what you want - you choose the size, colors as well as many other options. Most all our product are made right here in the US and from US materials!
The Harrier Drone Parachute Launcher raises the bar for low cost, light weight, easy to use, efficent, and cost effective spring actuated parachute launchers. No other drone parachute launcher even comes close to the Harrier!
Couple one of our Iris Ultra Parachutes with a Skycat Parachute Launcher (drone under 10kg) or the Peregrine IDS (drone more than 10kg). The lightweight and strength will give the best performance possible when compared to the chute weight.
These product bundles include everything you need for DJI Drones. All bundles include the parachute launcher, Iris Ultra Light Parachute, Harnesses and Rigging and a automatic parachute trigger.
The Iris Ultra parachute with Spectra lines gives unmatched performance vs weight. We provide Fixed Wing Recovery Bundles with everything you need for a quick and easy set up.
Our Classic Elliptical parachute is available in sizes 12" up to 120". For larger rockets, with spacial concerns, we have the amazing Iris Ultra parachute from 30" up to 192" (16 feet). The unique toroidal design results in a Cd of 2.2 or more! Meaning you can use a size smaller chute for the same load carrying performance.
We have several ballistic parachute deployment systems products to choose from. The Peregrine UAV (shown above) uses a small CO2 cartridge to deploy the parachute out and away from the UAV. The Skycat Drone Parachute launcher uses a spring to eject the parachute. We also have the Peregrine CO2 election device and Hawk CO2 release available as stand alone products.
Thought I would send you some feedback about the fruity chute I received and have flown about half dozen times now. In a nut shell, the chute is really great and I am very pleased with its performance. I particularly like the thin fabric which packs great into a small compartment (2.5" dia.).

Hi Gene, Just wanted to let you know that I got the parachutes today and I must say…WOW! I am impressed! I expected that they would be nice; I had no idea that they would be THIS nice! I am way more than just pleased and thought you should know!
As a former member of the US Parachute Team, and as a FAA Licensed Senior Parachute Rigger, I am exceptionally picky about parachutes. The Fruity Chutes are not only made to manned parachute quality, but offer amazing efficiency - which is why they're the only parachutes in my rockets!
