  • News - High Altitude Balloon Pro… | about 4 years ago

    Hi nect,
    These projects almost always include a parachute; especially if they ever hope to recover the camera.
    It just doesn’t look like it in the video because of the high altitude. There’s very little air resistance until much further until the fall. Once it starts hiting the right atmosphere, the speed will drop dramatically.
    Trust me, no-one wants to see people or property damaged, any more than they want to find the remains of their payload in a small crater.

No public wish lists :(
