Hey everyone here is another question. I have a LOC Forte, LOC Tomahawk, and Madcow Super DX3. I have nomex parachute protector and nomex shock cord protector for those three rockets. What is the best way to prepare those rockets for launch? The two LOC rockets have elastic shock cords and they attach to the body tube using a piece of nylon string and epoxyed in place and the Madcow rocket has a nylon shock cord that attaches to an eye bolt on the forward centering ring. Do you stuff the Nomex chute protector down the body tube like you do with recovery wadding or do you wrap it around the parachute itself up near the nose cone? Now the shock cord protector, do I just slide it over the shock cord all the way down to where it is anchored on the rocket? Any suggestions will be helpfull. Please go in depth with your answers so I can be sure to get it right so that I will not mess up my recovery system.
