I have a question for EXPJawa or anyone can jump in;  8)

Your mentioned idea on mylar streamer for L1 if it is really high up. Well, your idea struck back of my head and had to ask you this, if I put a mylar streamer in a Torrent without ebay and upper payload and change the nose cone to main body and have nomex wadding in first then mylar streamer put in second then added nice chute with chute releaser load in last along with the rocket after mylar streamer open then chute releaser won't open the main chute open at least 500 feet, do you think it will work, eh?? :-[

Sincerely,
Ken Kressler

yes Ken, that will work. you want to make sure you position everything so it is least likely to get tangled, but many people are using a chute release for cert flights. The mylar streamer will help with tracking, assuming its sunny out.

Just what I thought, Thanks Keller. Sound like a plan using the chute releaser better than having small chute would be too fast for it come to down and damage the possibility of the fins.
I would have to look for the demension of the chute releaser. And deciding which model would be a good size.
