HI has anyone used the material from the play chutes you can buy at Toys'R us ?
I'm thinking about the multi colored chutes roughly 10' diameter.
they are made from nylon and seems to float very well :)
This would be good for someone who does a lot of scratch builds.

Is it rip-stop nylon? You can use most nylon material as long as it's light weight, is heat resistent and packs easily. I think Dacron might be a little less heat resisitent but I can't say for sure. Heck, give it a try.
