Estes Recovery Wadding keeps your parachute in perfect shape when
used properly. The leading cause of unsuccessful flights is
failure of recovery deployment. If your rocket is precious,
consider one of Model Rocket Shop's Recovery Upgrade Kits with
Kevlar, Nomex and a nylon parachute. Replacing Estes fragile
knicker elastic shock cord and "bin-liner" parachute and using
permanently attached Nomex cloth instead of paper wadding can
lengthen the service life of your missile!
