Very cool designs Andrew!
...However, looking at those DV numbers is kinda scary!
That is WAAAAAY up in the 'shred the parachute/massive zipper' speed region...I downloaded the -D2 design and played a little with some different delays-mainly SHORTER delays and got the DV's down quite a bit...
Here is what I got:
211 ft alt with a DV of 7 f/s
613 ft alt with a DV of 8 f/s - Well, didn't have to change THIS one..
1111 ft alt with a DV of 22 f/s
As you can see, the shorter delays are a bit better..But, maybe the long delays is all you can get 'down under'?
Aim high, fly straight!
