Egglofter, rockets

Parachute Day

I spent the afternoon making three 1/4 mil Mylar parachutes for my model rockets. Two were 12" in diameter and one was 24" in diameter. A very poky business because the braided fishing line shroud lines have to be attached with three layers of tape to prevent cutting through the 1/4 mil plastic. They are all nice and shiny aluminised material.

Tomorrow it is back to work for a couple of days and then off to ConFusion.
