Homing Parachute Recovery

07/04/2012 12:11 AM

I started building Estes Model rockets when I was 8. I never stopped. By age ten, my friend Tim and I had built a 5 rod launcher and remote control station. As I got older, I built bigger and better rockets until now, I have a few over 10 feet tall and powered with much bigger engines.

My long-term project is to make a marketable parachute system that would bring the rocket back to the launch site by steering the chute to a ultrasonic emitter at the launcher. Prototype work well, but still perfecting!
