    My first duel deploy and I was hoping for some input. My question is, my payload bays will be snug with recovery gear up against bulkheads and against the charge cups, is this o.k. ? or should there be some room between the charge cups and the chute protector ? Thanks Mark Jeffords

    8) jeffro,
    It should be cool. I have a few ‘tight fits’. First, ground test to get the charge right. Make sure the chute protector is a good one! I have had blow-by the protector scorch a chute. When room is tight, wrap the chute as best you can. Good Luck! Tim Thomas L3


    Thanks Tim, I thought I might need a bit of a air cushion to help push the recovery gear out. Time to ground test like you said. Mark

    Pistons rule for keeping things from scorching. I’ve had blow-by with chute protectors scorch a few, but I figure that is somewhat inevitable in the end.
