I was looking at the instructions, and it looks like the motor tube extends into the nosecone.

If that is the case, how does the dual deployment system work?

The drogue charge ejects the cone, shock cord, and drogue chute. The main charge fires the main chute out of the motortube (chute cannon).

I'd like to build one of those. Looks like a fun low-altitude bird.

If I understand the instructions correctly..... The main chute will be packed into the top of the motor mount tube. The drogue will rest on the outside of the motor tube in the main body. And you would have an ejection charge in the motor tube and the main tube. Seems pretty slick to me. Hope this helps.

Now I see.


I think having one would be cool too.

it says I through M power, so I bet a J350 would give it a nice slow take off.


Does anyone have a rocksim file? or will I have to do it myself?:roll:
