Parachute (nose cone) deployment mechanism

Post by motorcyclepilot »

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.

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