Brief

T' rocket is cool with t' heli blades, but it is too heavy. Avast! Aye aye!   If you want it t' go higher, me hearties, you need t' swap out t' blades for a parachute (but some may think you are removin' t' personality o' t' rocket).  

My son wanted higher so we took them out. Avast, me proud beauty!   We put in a 12" parachute and it went 200 ft higher.
