I've lowered the price to $795 with free shipping.

Are you planning a crazy upscale of your favorite old kit?
Or a full-scale model of a real rocket?

Maybe you want to launch an outhouse (crap, that's been done).
Or launch a snowmobile (who'd be crazy enough to... oh wait!).

Could you use enough material for 100's of parachutes and 100's of feet of heavy shock cord?

Maybe you need a tarp to cover your motorhome? ;-)
Or gently and lovingly air-drop your 400-pound mother-in-law in a remote location? ;-)

What are you waiting for?! 💸

In my very subjective opinion, you should hang on to the chute until someone with a project worthy of such a neat parachute comes along. Cutting it up seems like a travesty. Maybe you could sell it back to Buddy or a vendor? Another place to advertise is arocket or maybe Aerocon would take it?

I have a tentative buyer for the chute if I hold on to it until the end of July.

Initially, I contacted Buddy and he didn't want it back.
