How Long?

Postby tstowe » Sun Apr 29, 2012 5:49 pm

I've been looking at how different groups rig their flights. Some have the parachute right under the balloon. Others, myself included, run a length of cord between the two. I normally put enough cord so that after it bursts, the balloon will hang below the payload. A short cord would keep it up above the parachute.

Anyone have an opinion as to which is better?

I prefer having a longer cord to prevent the balloon fragments from tangling the parachute. This is something I learned from my days with model rockets.
I have not tested a shorter cord though... so it might work just as well.
