Parachute system failure

Hey Guys,

This is going to be a very brief post as i am currently away in Singapore and is the reason i haven't posted anything in a while.

Just before i flew out here the maiden flight of Nexus I (4l Single Robinson Coupling) was performed for this we used the parachute system displayed in the previous post.
This Launch day ended in mainly disaster as the parachute system failed to work again :( our foot pump broke and launch pressure we worked out was only around 60-70psi. Overall a rather disappointing day. :(

However there were a few things that worked very well despite maybe needing a few alterations or repairs these included:

The launcher
Nexus 1 (escaped mainly unscathed)
Launch Abortion System (Had to be used once due to idiocy :P)

I will sort out and upload the footage plus a more in depth post when i return to England.

Regards Doug
