Hello guys, I bought a couple of months ago a phantom 4 and after few scares, I came to the conclusion that I needed a parachute rescue system on it. After hours of unfortunate web searching, I was ready to give up this idea but one week ago 1 found a system that seems to be reliable and easily reusable system at a fair price. So I wanted to ask you if you could give me your thoughts on it. Here is the video I found last week and hopefully you will be able to help me to make a choice.

My question is: Why are you crashing, or nearly crashing.
I have a Phantom 3 and find it so easy to fly it is ridiculously easy. Course I have flown quads for years before the built in auto pilot systems.
Where I fly there are lots of tall trees and a parachute would guarantee it would hang up in the top of 33 meter high pine tree.

Make sure you calibrate compass and gps home. If you get in trouble at altitudes where a parachute might help, just switch on the "Go home switch"
Perhaps I don't fully understand why you want a parachute recovery system, so a little more info would help.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I watched the video and it appears the chute is behaving more like a drogue chute than a parachute.
