Yes to ST-7 tubes. This was one of the major delays. Pretty sure the decals are being sourced by a professional silk screen place.

Default Andromeda Chute Size

My kids bought a USS Andromeda from MoreRocket.com; built it secretly, and gave it to me for my birthday. Nice gesture; I was really surprised. Somehow, I did not get the parachute with it. Anyone remember what size chute was used for this bird?

I don't, but I wouldn't use less than a 24 inch chute, that is if you value the fiddly bits and finnage! Maybe less likely to kink the BT.

The Estes version used an 18" chute.

Best of both worlds: Use a big chute with a JLCR.

I don’t know if a 24” chute will fit in that BT50 laundry tube.

Just fly it in your pasture before you put the cows on it to eat the grass down. Nice cushion!

Ah, JLCR needs at least a BT-60. Never mind.
