So my 7yo step daughter was showing off her moves last night with a pair of 6m rainbow gymnastics "ribbon on a stick" and I immediately thought: I need to figure out how to get two of these on a gyro returning rocket.

A quick roll test tells me they will fit rolled in a BT60 tube.

Now, figuring out how to deploy two foot long streamer arms on a gyro system so we can have rainbow corkscrewing streamer recovery on an LPR rocket.

Preferably without all the hassle of hinges...

/me starts to postulate.

Attach a streamer to each end of as long of a rod as you can get in the rocket. And just use a Jolly Logic Chute Release for each streamer. :wink:
