Well after some modifications to my LOC Onyx
30 inch X type parachute
twice the length in elastic cord
addition of eye screws in motor centering ring for retention.
2 small 1/8 inch quick links
I had a great flight. The X chute opened nicely and droped the rocket nice
and easy to the waiting cornfield below. This single use motor from Aerotech
worked well with this setup. BTW launched from a Mantis launchpad with a 3/16
inch rod 4foot long. I would suggest the mods above and the extra weight
needs a shorter delay then what is suggested the 4 worked great.
Any comments or suggestions what would be a comparable RMS for this flight to
be repeated (black jack preferably).
