The recovery parachute collection







I recently decided that I have way too many parachutes. The problem is, most kits still come with one in them, and if you buy the same kind of kit, you wind up with the same kind of 'chute over and over again. Any advice on what to do with these? They are not worth that much money... do you think anyone at a launch would want to trade 5 'chutes for say a few motors?

Bah. I have at least a dozen free nylon chutes, plus a pair semi-permanently attached to their rockets. Plus at least two dozen estes chutes.

: )

I will be open for trades but probably not online, just on the launch line...

Maybe ill trade a few 18 - 28 inchers. Say 1 D12 each?

The two small, dark blue chutes are from my machbuster kits. I would gladly trade my kidney for one or two of those...
