It does it's job... usually
By nate4531 August 16, 2013
Estes recovery wadding looks and feels like Toilet paper. It protects the parachute etc. from the hot ejection gases produced by an ejection charge. In my experience, this is often too thin, and quite a bit must be used to get a good result. I would recommend Quest Recovery wadding which is is pre-cut into about 6 squares (a good size for most rockets) and is thicker, and crumples better to fill a body tube. It is much better in my opinion.

Works very well

I have used 3 packages of this in the past six months and have had no chute scorching issues. I use a couple more sheets than each estes rocket recommends.

Estes Model Rocket Recovery Wadding
By Danny R. September 18, 2017
I have used Estes Rocket Recovery Wadding for years and it has never failed me on protecting my parachutes and streamers. If you want a good tight fit then take 3 or 4 sheets of the wadding and lay them across the body tube. Take your finger and poke the sheets down until they clear the top rim. Then take a deep breathe while placing your mouth over the body tube like a blowgun blow hard until the wadding pops into place for a tight seal. Then you can put your recovery device in.
