In the techniques forum, there was a thread on using mylar balloons to create parachutes. I had a couple around, and my kids each made a fliskits whatchamacalit. I am upgrading the streamer to a parachute, but the whole piece of mylar would not fit in the tube, so I've been trimming it down to fit. I'm left with a much less impressive looking parachute, but it's still more substantial than a streamer. Is there a formula for rocket weight: parachute diameter?
