With a single parachute, is it better to tie it to the nose cone or along the shock cord, and why.
Hey, that's me!http://modelrocketbuilding.blogspot.com/search?q=tie+parachute+to+shock+cord
After spending several minutes untangling the shroud lines around a Custom Equinox nose cone, I swore never again.
Another reason I can think of is that with a length of elastic shock cord between the nose cone and parachute there is more give when the chute opens, lessening the chance of the screw eye pulling out.
