I'm getting to the back half of the CAD model now, and I'm trying to package the parachute tubes.

Is there any recommendation for the size of these?  It seems most of them are about 4" round and about 30" long?

I need two chutes and lets say for the sake of argument I'll be going 280.

It would be ideal to have the attachment point exactly rearward of the center of mass, but if I had to err on one side, would I go up or down?  it seems like down would keep the front tire from losing traction or lifting.

Also, what kind of chutes are recommended?  drag chutes or custom made?

The best thing is to talk to Jim Deist or Bob Stroud on type, size and attach points. They are the experts and are in the rule book. a lot of factors need to be covered.

Hey Matt, how's this thing coming along?  I'm looking at trying to build something similar to your project and have found your topic extremely insightful.  Are you still working on this?
