I have used the Jolly Logic Chute Release with BT 60 diameter rockets for years. Works great.
Nice countdown prior to launching :rolleyes:
Looking forward to NARAM 61 big time! I will see you there.
Six mid-power flights Saturday - all successful. Highest was a Ventris to 1971 ft on a G76. It’s fun using the JL Altimeter 3. Nice to see a graph...
Saturday looks like a nice day with low winds from the south. I think I’ll fly some MPR and give the ‘ol Chute Release a workout.

Look under Contest Flying

Tail sliding into the wind seems to be a characteristic of tube fin rockets. I have a ASP tube fin that flys the same way. Look...
I believe I can add some valuable insight to this discussion. My qualifications are 45 years working in the NVH field. The first 40 years for the...
That was awesome. Thanks for the belly laugh. Something we all need now and then.
I can testify the Apogee tracking powder is superior stuff. I flew a 13mm A Parachute Duration at MWRC 17 at Bong in a 16mph wind. The rocket sims...
