The chute release is a pretty cool little product that lets you control the altitude your parachute opens. For model rocketry. Chute Release is a small electronic device that holds your rocket parachute closed until it drops to an altitude that you choose.
We've been watching this product development for some time. I remember John Beans having a prototype at NARCON 2013 and I thought it was pretty cool. Anyway it's out now and available.
Basically this device can either retain, or reef your parachute until you reach a pre-determined altitude. It then releases and your parachute can fully inflate. It features numerous features and you can control the release altitude. You can purchase the product here:
We also picked up the Jolly Logic AltimiterThree altitude recording device. It can also record acceleration on three axis as well. You call purchase this here:
