Spice up the descent portion of your flight with a eye-popping colorful parachute! Why? Because the descent portion of the flight is more than 2/3 of the total time the rocket is in the air. And it doesn’t have to be boring. You will dazzle your friends when they see these chutes blossom out the top of the rocket. The coolness of the launch will continue during the descent, all the way to touchdown.
This is a real rip-stop nylon fabric chute, so it has great strength and fantastic durability.
What makes them different from other cloth parachutes is that there is a fantastic pattern printed on the cloth before it is sewn. The colors soak into the white fabric, so the color shows through on both sides of the parachute. You can’t tell which is the inside versus the outside, since the color is so vibrant on both sides of the fabric.
Another thing that is different on these parachutes is that the suspension lines are thinner compared to other brands of nylon parachutes. The advantage of this is that they pack up into a smaller bundle; so you can use them in skinnier rockets and still be assured they are loose enough to eject without plugging up the tube.
Compared this price to a multi-panel chute, which have a starting price of $25 for a small 24 inch-diameter chute, and you’ll see what a bargain this parachute is.
