BLS-18 Model Rocket/ Mid-Power Main Canopy/ HPR Pilot

$34.99

Our Paramedichute BLS-18 Main Canopy straddles the line between model rocketry and mid-power. This chute has 95# shroud lines, and our signature satin trim. It will recover up to 1.3lb at 20 FPS, or serve as a pilot chute for ALS-84 or ALS-96, when these large canopies are used in smaller airframes.

We use this as a pilot on large chutes, or as a main canopy in our F-powered Screamin’ Green Meanie, and many of our thin-walled model and mid-power rockets flying on D, E, and F 24 and 29mm black powder and reloadable motors.

The lines and reinforcement used for HPR work with this chute can make it slightly bulky to deploy reliably from narrow model rocket airframes.  If the flier desires, a lightweight version is available at no extra cost.  Keep in mind, though, that the lightweight version will not be suitable for a HPR pilot or drogue.

Therefore, we must stress that the lightweight version is recommended for MPR or LPR rocketry ONLY.
