    Nice! Was the main chute in the NC? What was the secondary drogue chute? To ensure that the main was pulled out of the NC?

    No, the main was in the payload tube. The pilot chute was a 3' Top Flight standard. It does not pull the main out of the NC, or payload, either. It is attached to the deployment bag; it makes sure the top of the deployment bag points up, so that the main spills out of the bottom.
