Event 38 has improved its E386 mapping UAS with an automated parachute recovery capability for landing in confined areas, on rugged terrain or in territories requiring a parachute for safety purposes.

The parachute can be deployed automatically by a command built into the mission. The aircraft also retains the features of the E384-LR such as terrain follow and wind resist for further reliability in difficult environments.

The E386 uses the Harrier launch system from FruityChutes to safely deploy the parachute in flight. The UAS can also be landed manually onto its ABS plastic skid plate using the hand controller.

The E386 UAS is used for agriculture, surveying, construction, mining and conservation applications.
