Description

Jolly Logic's Chute Release allows you to employ "Dual Deployment" recovery without the use of pyrotechnic ejection charges.

Dual Deployment is a technique used to reduce the distance a rocket drifts after the parachute deploys.

The Chute Release holds your parachute closed until the rocket has descended to a specific altitude. Then the parachute is released to slow the rocket for a safe landing.

An elastic band is wrapped around the parachute in your rocket. This holds the parachute closed after it is ejected from the rocket at apogee. An altimeter built into the Chute Release detects when the rocket has fallen to the chosen altitude. Then, using an electronic servo, the Chute Release allows the parachute to open. This allows simple motor-eject rockets to reduce the distance that the rocket drifts while on parachute which is especially important for high flights, windy days, and small fields.

    Works very well. I only had it one day though. Third flight of day, my two stage rocket flew way off track, and of course to forest corner of field. Watched rocket drop from 2000' , chute was deployed but still wrapped then opened around 400'. Searched forest over two hours.. Well that cost me $65 per successful flight..
