I believe I have a 9' rocket man chute. Rocketman chutes are an unconventional shape though. This one is designed for about an 11mph decent of a 15lb rocket and 12mph decent of an 18lb rocket. Let me know if that works for you.  I can't make it to the meeting tomorrow so I'd have to give it to you tomorrow afternoon.

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.

Our rocket is basically done sans some painting to be done Wednesday night. However, after running simulations based on our most updated model, we're worried we're descending too slowly on our 14 foot chute for our capsule, and would also like to save some weight after our rebuild. Our simulations show that an ideally 8 ft chute (or at most a 10 foot chute) would be ideal.
>>> It's a bit last minute, but does anyone own an 8 ft to 10 ft chute we could borrow for competition weekend this Saturday? If so, would it be possible to borrow it during the Thursday NRVR meeting?
