I have a 7'-6" military flare/drop chute. Flat canopy (not hemispherical or
elliptical) with an octagonal shape (7'-6" across the points, 7' across the
flats), 84" lines, and a weight of 350g. It may be too small, but you're
welcome to borrow it if you think it will work. Just FYI - I will be
leaving town tomorrow at noon.
