#2 on following the exact same process
Just a heads-up, Rocketman chutes are on the bulky side and pack big. You may find the 10 foot doesn't fit in your payload bay. I could barely squeeze a 9 footer into my 4"rockets.
Those look like what I use on my L3 bird. I don't fly DD without a good ball bearing swivel on the fin can. I tried a barrel swivel once and took it out after one flight after it bend and didn't work.Recovery system upgrade!
The last major flight of my rocket EX-1127 encountered some serious recovery harness knots as a result of the booster spinning on decent. Fell from 6400’ to 500’ and was enough to render the streamer and drogue 110% useless as they were twisted in the harness.
