Watch a parachute rescue a drone in free fall

ParaZero’s SafeAir can save a drone (and the people below) in an emergency.

Drone operators dread the thought of their vehicle losing power mid-flight, and not just because of the expensive crash that’s likely to follow — it’s that the drone might hit something or someone on its way down.
