The L2 -Tender Descender
The L2 Tender Descender
Dimensionally, the L2 Tender Descender is the same as the L1 HDPE Tender Descender, but it is well over
4 times as strong! The L2 Tender Descender is made from heat treated anodized aluminum with stainless steel quick links. It can handle over 2,000 lbs of initial shock load and still deploy with over 500 pounds attached, yet weighs only 52gms. The L2 Tender Descender is intended for rockets weighing up to about 75 pounds.
The L2 Tender Descender uses the stainless steel quick links that RocketMaterials.org had tested to have a break strength of over 3,000 pounds!
Here is a video of the L2 Tender Descender being used in a 6 inch diameter rocket for a successful L3 flight!
