Customer Project: Semi Elliptical Parachute
by Craig Classen
This is the 28" parachute I constructed using 1.1 oz calendered ripstop nylon. I chose black and pink for good visibility in most conditions. Eventually it will be used for hobby rocketry!
1 yard each of black and pink 1.1 oz calendered ripstop nylon, plus some kevlar line that I had on hand for the shroud lines.
How do I make it?
I cut the 10 gores out with a hot knife, then sewed everything together using flat felled seams. Last I sewed the shroud lines on.
