Buying a drone only to damage it by accident is not fun. There are things you can do to protect your drone. Mayday happens to be a smart device that relies on machine learning to detect when your quadcopter is crashing, so it can deploy a parachute.
Mayday is durable and easy to install. It supports a wide range of serve release motions. It can work by itself without a flight controller. Like what you see? You may want to support this project on Kickstarter.
