O.M.G. That is a beautiful AV-Bay,

@Neutronium95 !

Q: How much volume do you have for a chute ?

I don't think I have anything that would fit in your 29mm nose -- a 15-inch Top Flight 'thin' is my smallest chute.

Otherwise, I would overnite a chute, just because I want to 'see' your flight

Maybe someone local has a larger-than-9-inch chute that you could borrow that fits in your nose ?

Otherwise, looking back at your thread, "Hyperion I" landed at 22 ft/sec on the 12-inch mylar chute ( just about perfect ), so you should be 'legal' on a 9-inch chute and the Playa should be soft after all that fairly recent rain ...

Good luck this weekend at Balls !

EDIT: p.s. I had to do a little arithmetic ...

A1 = Area( 12-in chute ) = 6 * 6 * pi = 113 in^2

A2 = Area( 9-in chute ) = 4.5 * 4.5 * pi = 64 in^2

v1 = terminal velocity for the 12-inch chute = 22 ft/sec

Assume a similar burn-out mass for Hyperion I and Hyperion II and a similar atmosphere and CD.

v1 * v1 * A1 = v2 * v2 * A2

v2 = sqrt( v1 * v1 * A1 / A2 )

v2 = sqrt( 22 * 22 * 113 / 64 )

v2 = 29.2 ft/sec

Did I do that right ?

I've had more than a few rockets land a little faster than that at Ocotillo on purpose
