Or Rooster Booster.
Yup, that's what my ASP eggstravaganza and my son's QCR model look like. In another thread somewhere I posted a link to a quickee java program I wrote that allows you to quickly print shrouds of whatever size you want. If I wasn't so lazy I'd hunt it down for everyone. We printed a 10" shroud for my son...identical to my eggstravaganza. Seems to work well for stuffing big parachutes. I'm thinking of a shorter, lower skin friction shroud for eggloft altitude.Originally posted by Micromister
Here's a pic of an Old Apogee B-liner (B eggloft) somewhere on another disc I have the full size pattern for the Shroud, the important thing to note here is the motor tube inside this shroud is only 2.5 inches long.

Good advice. ASP sells competition parachutes (1/4 mil mylar) with over the top shroud lines for egg lofting in sizes up to 36". Look for their Hang Time Over Easy parachutes. ASP also sells sheets of 56"x56" 1/4 mil mylar so that you can make even larger chutes if you so desire.Originally posted by shockwaveriderz
And be sure to use a very strong parachute.....most people use parachutes in which the shroud lines are continous "over the top" to keep them from shredding the parachute at engine ejection....
