Recovery Survey - Fruity Chutes

Postby SpaceManMat » Tue Feb 10, 2015 9:10 am

Came across this survey that Fruity Chutes are doing, thought there might be a few people around that would like to participate and earn themselves a discount.

Hi everyone, Fruity Chutes starting up a program to gather documented parachute performance and recovery data. We are trying to quantify the reliability of parachute recovery in general, what works, doesn't, and firm up best practices. This means when you fly one of our Iris Ultra chutes as your primary recovery you fill out a Flight Data form, take some pictures of the recovery and send it back to us. Best of all we pay $10 / completed servery form! Here is our webpage describing the program, and with the forms. ... survey.htm

Get back to me with any questions at And if you fly our chutes, and the Iris in particular get flying and earn some money back!
QRS: 124
Highest Altitude: 13,647 feet
Fastest Flight: Mach 1.55
Largest Motor: CTI 1115J530 IM
Current Project: X Wing
