Hello everyone. I am finishing up a rocket, 6" diameter and this is the first time I will be using a deployment bag. It will house the main 120" parachute. I have been planning on using the nose cone to pull the bag from the chute stuffed inside using the force of the ejection charge.
The tether that would be used to attach to a nose cone is only about 3-4" long, which would mean that my chute in the bag will literally be right next to the nose cone, so I am curious if this is OK and just stuff all the shock cord underneath? Or should I attach a small length of shock cord to the nose cone and D-bag to pull if off when the nose cone is ejected?
Need to figure out what method I should be using to pull the bag off the chute.
Thanks in advance,
