Take a look at the model rocket sites, look at the High Power Rocket sites. They often have calculators for payloads on the sites.

You could run experiments with different size parachute's and a 6lb bag of rocks from the roof of a tall building!

thinking of a boom mounted just incase of boom strike or malfunction when autoing is not an option some thing to float the heli back down to mother earth at a slower decent then frame break speed or worse a rekit. besides if it opened it would be blown away from the rotor provided it was at decent hs. and boom mounted even better

cant get into it to much as the idea theives are reading some thing of a droge chute mounted on boom that pops out when ur blades stop in the air. or those boom strikes or motor cut outs when you donty have enough hs to auto i know there will be people that dont like the idea of a chute or suspension string being mounted on a heli but even the ka 50 has a seat ejection system that jetisons the rotor and then fires the eject seat. but this wont be designed that way

With over 600 skydiving jumps and an extensive knowledge of the industry I think it is very possible and a great idea, Kind of like the emergency chute on the ultralite airplanes. If it is mounted on the bottom and safely carries the heli down upside down, and is ejected out the bottom you can keep the rotors.

All my crashes happen so quick there is no time for chute deployment.

Any way maybe a chute packed in a small dome above the blades.

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

Its just going to get tangled in the blades resulting in a even worse crash. How do you plan on stopping the rotors before deploying the chute? The blades are always spinning to some degree before impact.

sorry for the late response. i was thinking more for mid air problems like a boom strike, or esc failure. was also leaning more toward the aerial photo/vid people with rigs. probally have 2 modules 1 for the jetison rig and 1 for heli or just 1 unit for the heli/rig. with being able to mount the unit on the bottom of the rig it would put a good amount of distance between the chute and either rotor head. I am sure alot of people would enjoy the security just like redundant rx batteries. I am sure this product wont be for everyone, and there will always be nay sayers but i like the idea

Well its gonna cost you about $10 grand to get it patented and then another $300k to bring it to market on something that will have marginal results at best. I know first hand about getting something patented and brought to market.

It all depends on how you fly, how high you fly and if its going to work. I wouldnt like to be the one testing it out for the first time. Sorry to say but its just another thing that can go wrong. You wouldnt want that to accidently release in flight. Good luck if you do give it a crack

There we go again, the parachute idea ....

I don't any one ever follow through as most quickly realize that most heli don't fly high enough to allow chutes to open fully before hits the ground.
