To be perfectly honest with you, I do not fly this way. It's either all out at the top (Low flying typically H motors) or tether and release, historically with the Tender Descender and now exclusively the bolted TD-2. So, really, I can only tell you what I THINK not what I have done in regards to using a "burrito wrapped" chute and a Piranha cutter to release it.

Yes, I THINK that I would wrap the chute like an old time package and release with the cutter. The up side to using a cutter compared to the JLCR is the thing can be cinched down pretty tight.

I will defer to others on this as to the BEST way to do this type of recovery.

Thank you Cameron and all the other informative posts from the "Brain Trust".
