Circular Nylon Parachute Pictures

This shows the challenge rocket with the nylon parachute inside the 'nose separates at apogee' nose cone.

In this case, the drogue is only tied to the nose cone.

The main chute is fastened to the rocket with a bottle top - see the 'nose separates at apogee' nose cone page for details.

This particular nose cone is tapered.

Note that there is plenty of talcum powder in the nose cone.

Note the beautiful shape of the shroud.
Just after touch down. The drogue ended up fairly close to the base of the launcher and the rocket.
