QRS-24 Tracking Streamer
QRS-24 Tracking Streamer.
This tracking streamer must be seen to be believed. It’s able to recover the largest mid-power rockets as well as Level 1 high power rockets in primary mode. From G to M, this streamer will have a place in your high-powered rocketry fleet! We use it in multiple rockets at apogee for dual-deployment, and to recover our H-powered G-force in primary mode. At 24 feet long, it can easily be seen from several thousand feet.
We have used QRS-24 in projects flying on 24mm G’s up through M motors. We used a prototype of this streamer on our level 2 flight –and, 3 years later, on our level 3 cert flight. The level 3 recommendation for this streamer is not marketing speak or hyperbole, or even mathematical calculation: it’s a fact—we’ve flown it in that range. It features both the triple-thick shock cord tunnel as well as brass grommets for use with quick-clips or ties. Like the rest of our streamers, it is made from a single piece of durable, yet lightweight, ripstop Nylon. All hems are double-rolled; there are no exposed edges of fabric to fray.
QRS-24 packs very small for its unfurled size, but to ensure a nominal deployment, we recommend packing into a tube no smaller than 54mm without a pilot.
QRS-24 can be used as an apogee event across an impressive range of weight classes –payloads recovering on the BLS-60 up to the ALS-96 Advanced High-Power Main Canopy are within the working range of this large tracking streamer. If using as an apogee event in a dual-deploy rocket, we recommend a shock cord of at least 75′, with the streamer mounted at least 25′ from end. This will help ensure the main is deployed into clear air.
Please realize this streamer requires a large amount of material. Shipping may be delayed.
