This will be the documentation of my Tripoli Rocketry Association Level 3 certification build of a Wildman Darkstar Extreme.

I will not begin this project until sometime in 2022.




Parachutes for consideration in this build:

15' "X-Form" parachute form Aerocon Systems.  Nominally for a 30-60 pound vehicle.  There is well-documented use of this parachute in a 22 pound rocket.

Wildman Rocketry "Recon-60" is the stock, recommended parachute.  Suitable for a 22 pound rocket.

8' Rocketman parachute is what was used in a Darkstar Extreme from another builder.  That, along with a 2' Rocketman drogue.


Waitin on availability of the "X-Form" parachute, with details to follow.



Something worth considering:




Good reference material to consider:
