I second that. That is awesome! The perfect answer to the long landing space.

What UAV flight system/software are you using?

Notice that the chute did flip it over on the ground at the end. That is always one of the challenges
of using a parachute like that. Can drag it along the ground after the landing.

It doesn't say it comes with a motor anymore... They say:

You still need the belows to get it in the sky:

1 * 2820 or bigger brushless motor;

folderable prop 12 * 6 or 12 * 8;

2 * 20g servos(the size of  servo hole on the plane is 40*40mm);

60A ESC or bigger;

4s 6000---10000mah lipo;

That's arduplane. I use the same system on my skywalker. Great to see it works so well on the x8.
