CS: Ballute Testing

I must say the CS parachute department seems to be on the ball, good to see so much work going into recovery!

Video Caption: In an attempt to mitigate the spin we saw with our last manned Ballute jump, we made and tested a small-scale design, which is sown from two sections – top and bottom, rather than single continuous gores. This, we hope, allows better alignment of air intake pockets, which we expect caused the spin on the previous design.

Copenhagen Suborbitals is the world’s only manned, amateur space program, 100% crowdfunded and nonprofit. In the future, a volunteer will fly to space on our home-built rocket.

If you like the video and what we do in general, please go to http://www.copsub.com/support-us and support our project. Donations start from as little as a coffee a month.
