This 12 in. (30.5 cm) parachute is preassembled and ready to use on model rockets that require a 12 in. parachute.

This size works great on many rockets, and definitely on the Sky Writer. The only time I personally had a melting issue was one time when I forgot to add wadding. Oops! It didn’t melt too much, but enough to ruin the chute. Ordering another! To avoid the melting another reviewer experienced (with any size parachute), I would suggest being extra careful to make sure your recovery wadding is loosely packed but still touching all the inside walls. Also go for the higher # of sheets of wadding. For example, if your engines say use 4-6 sheets, go with 6.

I have the Crossfire ISX and this size chute is a good size for it. I always cut a hole in mine so the wind doesn’t carry it away. If I ever need a replacement, I know what to do.

I am very glad to see the return of patterned chutes. 12 in chute very durable,long as you use wadding and correctly.

I was wondering If there was something better than recovery wadding thats fireproof because Everytime I launch with this parachute it melts togeather every time no matter how much wadding I use. ESTES NOTE: Our recovery wadding is flame resistant and we can’t recommend any other material to use as recovery wadding.
