I'm looking for a 8" estes parachute from the 1970s/80s to use with my mini bertha clone. It can be new or used. Does anyone have one they would be willing to sell or trade?

Wow,Nathan- It's just a chute and NOBODY has replied yet? Let me look this week end. Send me a PM with your addy. I'm sure I have something deep in a footlocker at the bottom of a pile of them. If I'm lucky- it there any colour combo you're looking for? I hardly used the Estes plastic chutes so I may have some still. I sent a box of 'em out a few years ago, but I'm sure some are left over still in the package.

Nathan,

If you're still looking, send me a PM with your ship to address. I'm 99% sure my son has one of the old retro black & yellow checkered ones in his old low power range box.

I think he's looking for the old style that was available a few decades ago...

I have a yellow/white/black 12" and a red/white/black 12". That get you close?
