Hi all, we did the recovery system for bluShift Aeropace rocket including the IFC-240-S chute (20 ft canopy).  Here is some great video of the launch, and the rocket coming down on the huge 20ft canopy.  The rocket weight was around 400 lbs as I recall. Great drone footage from the air.


Cool stuff!

For them they had a liquid fuel rocket that used biofuel.  Not sure what that entailed.

A fried egg, ham and cheese sandwich is bio-fuel for me. But I'd clearly still need the 20' parachute.

Add baked beans and it would be nuclear fuel!
