      Hi Ron
       
      SABRE is using a very long parachute to payload line, 50 to 75 feet.  The only reason is to reduce the amount of swing and sway in the payload so we get video that's watchable without pails of Gravol.  For balloon to patachute, it's 10-20 feet ... for no particular reason.

      How long should the line be between the balloon and the parachute and between the parachute and the fist payload box?
