    Do you mean to drop a parachute from the q500, or for the q500 to deploy a parachute in an emergency so it floats to the ground?

    Sorry for the confusion, I moved your posts to make a new topic here. We made our own parachute drop system from a Hobby King dropper:

    But we've since been sent a Flifli airdrop device which comes with its own little controller that's supposed to have a 300m range. It's been designed to go on a DJI Phantom, but there's no reason why you could get it to go on a q500.
    Not sure about one for saving the q500 though, you would have to make it yourself. Is there a reason why you want an emergency shoot?

    Well reason I would like a emergency parachute is in case anything happens with the drone and it drops out the sky as it's not cheap so see the deploy system how much are these and who sells them

    I always thought they were a bit unnecessary these days. However, these guys have been going for a few years now. They don't list Yuneec, but there's no reason why it wouldn't work:

    To be honest, if I wanted one I would just get their Phantom 4 version and just fit that to the Yuneec myself. It doesn't look like it would be very difficult to adapt.

    That will be a very nice idea sir so that your drone will be safe at all times and away from troubles that might destroy your drone.
