Thanks guy's for your help on the baby wipes question.
Now I need some good advice about the placement of the deployment
charge in an altimeter controlled rocket.
The rocket in question is a 10" Thumper, about 32 pounds loaded. The
altimeter bay is amidship, with a dual deployment option. For this
first flight I will fly 2 redundant GWiz altimeters and have only a
single apogee deployment (Keeping it very simple). There is a hole in
the bays aft bulkhead for wires to an explosive charge. Do I use a 4
foot wire and place the charge's below the chute in the traditional top
of the motor config ? Or will this fowl the parachute ?
What's a good foolproof way to do this ?
