I am looking for a "recovery chart" of some kind.
Something that will give me:

for a rocket of weight X, what can I expect in terms of decent speed with parachutes and streamers of different sizes.

Hopefully, something like that exists online. Not looking for pinpoint accuracy, just a general comparison.

use the descent rate calculator on EMRR:

http://www.rocketreviews.com/tools.shtml

also check out the streamer size and parachute size calcs too. heck, you gotta check out the entire EMRR site!!

there are at least a half dozen other parachute charts & calcs online, I am sure other folks will post them here.
