8792Re: [GPSL] Trees
- Nov 1, 2010I have a question for the list...
How long is the distance from your balloon to your payload? I know everyone will have a different answer but in my mind longer is better. If your parachute gets caught in a 50' tree and the distance is between the chute and payload is 50' then at worst you loose the chute? I also think that the payload is more stable the farther away it is from the balloon, on the ascent that is. I do not have any facts to back this up so I could be way off base but it seems to be true in the scaled down tests that Brenden and I have done.
Thanks for your input,
