Deployment bag- multiple sizes
Click To Enlarge

We carry two sizes of deployment bags that are intended for use with mid-power sized rockets. The main benefit of a deployment bag is to allow the shroud lines of your parachute to fully extend prior to your parachute being inflated. This helps significantly to keep things from tangling up.

TARC teams will find that a deployment bag will usually add a second or two to your deployment time which can be used to adjust the flight time of your rockets.

Our smaller bag measures approximately 4" x 7" and is intended to be used with BT-80 sized body tubes, or any body tube that is at least 2.5" in diamter.

Our larger bag measures approximately 4.5" x 9" and is intended to be used with 3" sized body tubes.

The deployment bag is constructed from Nomex, but is not intended to be used without additional protection such as a Nomex parachute protector and/or cellulose insulation (aka- dog barf). This is because the nylon strap can melt under exteme heat.

The nylon strap is continuous and provides loops at both ends.

Deployment bags can be used in a number of different ways. One suggestion is to connect your parachute to your rocket's shock cord in the normal way. The parachute then gets stuffed into the deployment bag. The nylon loop that extends out of the bottom of the bag can then be attached to your nose cone. The deployment bag is then slid into the rocket's body tube with the open end of the deployment bag facing downward. Upon ejection, the nose cone will be ejected upwards along with the deployment bag. When the shock cord gets tights at full extension, then the parachute will be pulled from inside the the bag. With this method, the nose cone will have to have its own parachute.

The inside loop can be used to attach to the top of a parachute if it has a sewn loop at its crown.
