Anyone know where I can get a high quality HPR purple parachute? I need one approximately 48" - 54" in size. I perused several websites where components were sold, but did not see any purple chutes.
Thanks in advance!
E-mail Carl at RocketRage (firstname.lastname@example.org). He'll take good care of you. He builds all sorts of great recovery systems for guys in our club. Just don't tell him I sent you or he'll run after you with a club :kill:
Here's another plug for a local guy. Check out Spectrachutes, Alan's a good guy and makes a nice 'chute. Make sure to check the sizing description/chart, these are a little bigger than you might expect from the size.
I could see if JoANN fabrics has purple.... I dont think they do, but if they do, I could proabably make one to your specs. I would reccomend Topflight or something, though. I dont think I have ever seen purple where I get my ripstop. Why do you want purple, if I may inquire? Red is quite nice, and shows up exelent against any sky. PML makes purple/white chutes. ONe panele white, 1 panel purple ETC. I pretty much sell my chutes at CMASS, thats where people actually notice me. I fly a rocket with one in it, I get a small crowd by my range blanked and I make a few good bucks, and get the pleasure of seeing happy people recovering rockets with my chutes! Win-win!
Topflight is good, though. And they have prices just over mine (or just below, I forget....) B2 rocketry also makes em, and I hear a lot of good comments about Spherachutes.
I received a purple parachute with my 3" BullPup from Public Enemy Rockets. You may want to contact them and see if they'll sell you a chute only. Heck, while you're there, you might as well buy one of their kits too. They've got some really nice quality kits.
