FTC Parachute Deployment Mechanism

We've posted an update on our main website with details of how the T-8 FTC parachute deployment mechanism works.

Included in the update are photos and a short video of how the mechanism works. We are hoping to test fly it at the next opportunity.

Hi George

Your new FTC rocket looks great but are you not going to have an on-board camera?

Hi Tom,

No camera in this one. There really isn't a whole lot of room in there, and besides this is only the first prototype. We first have to fly it before we add more expensive things to break. :)
