Here are some shots from May 2011

parachute release handle and pneumatic actuator system.

New for 2011-pneumatic parachute air launch system. This is the manual override handle and the air actuator for releasing the parachute rip cord.

Parachute Air launcher switch for pressurizing system.

This is the 'humphrey switch' that is used to pre-pressurize the parachute air launcher. Once it is pressurized it will launch with 125+ psi out the back. A high visibility LED is also lit in rear (in trunk keuy position) by chute when pressurized.

Rear license plate CNCd and engraved for parachute system and air controls.

Custom CNCd 'license plate' by NW3S Racing. Cable is the parachute rip cord cable. Air for the launch is plugged in to the fitting on the right.

Another view of the rear custom plate.
It is 5mm aluminum, powdercoated, engraved and
paint infilled.

Parachute air system tank.

This shows the small CO2/Air tank that is used for the parachute launcher system. It feeds air to the air actuator (to pull rip cord) and also pressurizes the air launcher in the back (that holds the actual parachute).
