How deep inside the tube are you planning to locate it? I'm guessing you would only need enough room for a drogue, but even that needs some space, and getting deep in a 2" tube without getting epoxy all over the sides can sometimes be a real pain... But I like the idea for the ability to replace it...I'll then "thread" a kevlar loop down and around the bolt. The two ends will exit the top of the tube. If I have a long enough piece, it will connect directly to the Av Bay. If not, I'll attach another piece between its ends and the Av bay
If I ever want to inspect or replace this loop, it will be a simple matter to pull the existing cord and thread a new one in.
This will allow me to use the engine ejection as a backup.
And yes, I know I could buy something equivalent, but except for the bolt and a bit of time, this cost me nothing......
