RC Parachutes, balloon recovery and more
Small parachutes for hobbies
I got into small parachutes by dropping teddy bears for kids at events.
I was always interested in parachutes and set about recreating some of the latest, innovative parachutes in order to try and understand why they worked. Or even existed.
Having made square RAM-AIR parachutes, I set about creating efficient chutes for Drone Rescue and Balloon Payload Recovery. I have a few designs, based on the golden-ration, that perform surprisingly well.
At some point I’ll start making these plans available.
In the meantime, have a look around and get some ideas for your next small parachute project.
