Fruity Chutes Iris Ultra Compact Parachutes with Spectra Shroud Lines, 30" to 240"

NOTICE: When you order custom-colored parachutes, please let us know when you need them. We will do our best to work with you and your schedule. Lead time is generally five weeks after receipt of order.

The Iris Ultra compact parachutes raise the bar on parachute performance vs weight. These parachutes use Spectra shroud lines to lower weight as much as 30% over the standard parachute of the same size. The compact parachutes are ideal for all UAV applications or any other application where weight and packing volume are critical. All the Iris parachutes feature a toroidal shape which results in a Cd of at least 2.2! This means you can use a smaller sized parachute for the same load-carrying performance. Said another way, the Iris Ultra 72" will outperform the elliptical 84" custom, and the Iris 84" will outperform the elliptical 96". Additionally, due to how the canopy is shaped, these parachutes have less material compared to the same size elliptical parachutes. We carry stock colors for all parachutes in red/white, yellow/black, and orange/black with other options periodically available. Alternatively, you can order custom-colored parachutes, for which lead time is about five weeks.

  • Lightweight 1.1oz mil-spec calendared ripstop nylon - Parachutes are compact and lightweight.
