You can fit two 18" chutes in there though.

Here is the Estes instructions for the kit where they tell you the parachute size:

Has anyone thought of alternate break-point schemes for the Andromeda? To make it more transportable?

I'm picturing a break about midway through the long BT-20. You'd have to put sleeves and sockets on the long dowels, but that could look good if you did it right.

The challenge would be cramming in appropriate parachutes into the BT-20.

I suppose you could go with actual ejection up front, and just use a break point for transportability.

It's not really that big to transport.

If you break it in half you can recover separately with a 12" or 15" chute for each half. They would be easy to get into a BT-20.

Don't know if this has already been mentioned.
Listed on erockets at just under $50. Considering the size and complexity of the kit, seems reasonable. Shows out of stock until they release it for sale.
Parts, instructions, decals are also listed for purchase separately.
Two kinds of decals, a screen printed water slide with white ink, and a "new technology" (whatever that means) black on silver stick on.
Looks like it won't be much longer!
