Its very dificult to make a ram air parachute... and at the scale to be carried by the microheli, I wouldn't want to be the one trying. But you can make one of the semi-steerable round ones.

There are 4.9 gram proportional servos and under 5 gram 4 channel recievers available now. They'll operate on a single cell 150 mah LiPo. The system can be stuffed into a blow molded plastic figure. PROBABLY you cold keep it under the weight of the 9v transitor battery powered wireles videos systems which the Blade CP/HoneybeeCP2 can get off the ground with. (but they struggle with carrying those..) Steering would be marginal with the round chute.

A small glider wouldn't come out any lighter than the above method of making a parachutist.
