This is a simple parachute lure system that can be towed by most quadcopters or used with a kite. A parachute is folded and pushed into a lightweight plastic tube. The tube is attached to a 12 ft. string which is attached to the bottom of the quadcopter (or to the kite line) with a clip. Attached to the parachute in the tube is a six foot line attached to a swiveling small padded lure. A special yellow pinch clip on the line pinches to the edge of the tube. When the falcon or hawk grabs the lure and tries to fly downward with it, the clip pulls off the tube followed by the parachute which acts as a drag as the falcon or hawk flies to the ground.
The lure that comes with this system weighs one ounce and measures 3 x 4 inches.
