Abstract : The proposed device for dropping parachute models is distinguished by the fact that the cutter is designed to encircle the braking halyard with incandescent filaments from the power source, which is located in the command station. In addition, at the central part of the knot of the canopy, a pivot is attached which eliminates twisting of the braking halyard, release cord, and retaining line. (Author)
