New Hybrid Parachute Recovery Mechanism Tutorial and Video

This week, we are happy to announce a new type of Parachute Recovery System for rockets of all types, which combines the best features of an Axial System (large volume) and a Radial System (simple construction, and high reliability) to create a Hybrid system that is better than the sum of its parts.

The tutorial explaining how to build and operate the Hybrid Deploy System, as well as a detailed explanation of the advantages this new design can be found on our website at the following link: http://www.uswaterrockets.com/construction_&_tutorials/Hybrid_Deploy/tutorial.htm
If you would like to see a video showing how we build and tested the Hybrid Deploy, check out the link below to the video on our YouTube Channel: http://youtu.be/_x7sSLBN8zk
