Re: Binder Design Velociraptor

How did the 3D printing hold up?

Re: Airframe choices (or why you should consider rolling your own airframes)

AusRocketry sell couplers, but all small sizes. Nothing long enough to roll on. Email Blake at info@ausrocketry.com and ask for whatever length you want. He gets longer tubes and cuts them to size. Don't forget to make it a little longer than you actually need as the ends of hand-rolled tube are no...

Re: Shroud Line-less Parachute

Neat. The mesh would get some synergy in the strength of the individual threads taking and spreading the load. I guess if you were worried about a tear rending the chute shredded you could weave in some additional lines as a backup in the event of the main fabric ripping. I suppose we should ask why...
