ALS-120 Advanced High-Power Main Canopy

$399.99

 

The Paramedichutes ALS-120 Advanced High-Power Main is our latest main canopy.  We are pleased to be the first offer to the rocketry community a twenty-four gore main.  That’s ten feet across with a veritable web of shroud lines for the ultimate recovery confidence.  We challenge you to find a 10 foot main with this many gores anywhere, at any price.  More gores is more strength, and more lines to shoulder the load.  Yes, it’s more labor on our end, but this is the 10′ main WE would want (and it’s the one we use!), and we’re pleased to offer it to you!

ALS-120 is, after all, a 10-foot main, so careful packing may be necessary in small diameter airframes, but it’d be no problem in 5.5 or bigger in most configurations.  We use one to recover our beloved Mondo Kraken –a 5.5″ diameter, 75mm-chambered upscale that eats Ls and Ms.   As it is an ALS, it already comes with the apex loop so you have a place to which a pilot chute may be attached should you opt for one (we’d recommend the BLS-24 or smaller–depending upon space and how tight of a fit you have).  Of course our signature satin trim is part of the package.  This chute will recover up to 56 lb at 20 FPS: this is in the highest echelons of L2 motors and well into the L3 range.

Paramedichutes strongly recommends using one of our PPE Freebags in chutes of this size or larger.  Using a deployment bag helps to ensure that the lines are extended before inflation for proper sequence and best results.  We wouldn’t dream of flying this without one.  Freebags require a pilot chute.  Oftentimes, the flier will already have a suitable pilot in their inventory.  If you need assistance in selecting an appropriate pilot chute, please contact us with your project’s particulars and we will be happy to make our recommendations.
