    I ran across this in Rotor Drone magazine. I was looking for another parachute system, so I'll be adding more links as I find them.

    EDIT: After a lot of searching, this is the ad I was looking for. There is a model made for the Phanto, BUT it must be triggered by a switch on the transmitter. However, it wouldn't be too difficult to design an electronic circuit to trigger it. At the least, it is a step forward.

    If I come up for one for the P2, I'll post it. (I like the where the Ora (available in March) mounted their chute.)

    really interesting.
    Looks like they have it mounted on a P1. I wonder if this would fit a P2 ?

    No .. it's not going to work on a P2
    Before buying please make sure these following requirements will be met.
    1.Max prop size 8.5 inches
    (stock phantom 1 props 8")
    (stock phantom 2 props 9.4")

    Not much room in there on a P2
