opposite side.
After mount the whole ejection plate with his support side
frames on the main plates. Use 2x M3 nuts in order to lock the
system. Don’t tighten it too much. It’s important to keep a
free rotation.
From both side of the system, install a CHC M3-12 screws. Lock
with by side with 2x M3 nuts like on the support side frames.

it like on the picture.
Remove the landing gear from the multirotor main frame.
Depends on the use (with or without gimbal), place the rescue
system correctly in order to have the right center of gravity
(the landing gear has to stay perfectly horizontal)
Here on the picture, there is any gimbal, then we place the
rescue system on the center. If we put a gimbal on the front,
the rescue system will be on the back.
Install your batteries. Please take care that the servo arm
moves without problems.
After, place the ejection strap.

are on the multirotor frame. Now the assembly of straps looks
like a Y.
Tighten the straps strongly again.

Close the ejection Pod. Take care to have the rescue strap in
the same position which is shown.
Close the ejection Pod by making the bigger ring on the servo
arm. The servo arm locks already the first strap which is
coming from the 1st strap.

It is really important that you properly fold the parachute every single time you use it to ensure it will be open quickly and be
efficient the very next time you need it.
First, please spread the parachute and make sure no lines are tangled up, and then inflate it.
Then spread it again and gather all the lines. Hold them in position using some ballast if possible.
Separate every single fabric panel. Evenly distribute them to the right and the left (5 on each side).
Then folds the panels the way shown on the picture below starting with the left panels, then do the exact same things for the
right ones.
©Copyright by Opale-­‐Paramodels 2013 v1.0 Page 9 sur 11 Now we have the short side of the parachute folded, it is now time to fold it 3 times to get it fit in the container.
The trailing edge of the parachute should be positioned on the opening side of the container.
Grab the lines and wind them round your fingers till it looks like an 8 in order to store the lines in the container. Then house the
lines inside the container just in front of the parachute’s trailing edge.
©Copyright by Opale-­‐Paramodels 2013 v1.0 Page 10 sur 11 Use the black elastic loop to close the container, as shown below.
Once the container is closed, use 3 or 4 lines to fully make sure it will stay closed till you want it to open.
Please often check that the container is well closed and kind of locked thanks to the lines. Do not hesitate to ventilate and unfold your
parachute if it is stored wet.
