Parachute (nose cone) deployment mechanism

Postby motorcyclepilot » Thu Jun 23, 2016 6:46 pm

Re-working a parachute deployment mechanism I thought of two years ago. The servo was binding in the original and unable to release the "dart". Today I realized it could work witha proper sear release.

Seems nice!

Probably like the VDTT but the piston isn't connected.
