I haven't been ignoring you.....you've been agreeing with what I've been
saying( at least until the D-bag issue:-), so I didn't feel the need to
respond. Glad to have you with me As to the D-bag/blanket issue.....both
systems work. It's more a matter of personal preference. Keep
responding......we're listening:-).

That's it! I wouldn't wrap the chute at all if I were using a D-bag. I'd fold
and roll the chute, put it in the bag, Z fold the lines and put the lines in
the bag, last. The idea being to get the lines out and extended first, before
the chute starts to open. One wrap probably wouldn't make much difference,
though.
 Both the D-bag and my rolling method make sure that the lines are extended
before the chute trys to open. This is what we're going for, so either one
works (as long as the laundry DOES come out of the bag). I've seen a few cases
where the chute didn't make it out of the bag (and MY experience with the chute
not comming out of the Warloc) and I think you're right about the needed mass
of the nosecone to insure this. My blanket method doesn't need to use as much
mass as the blanket opens on it's own and the rolled up chute comes out right
behind the cone. The problem I had with the Warloc was that the force of the
cone was only enough to extend the shroud lines....NOT pull the chute out. My
concern is the same thing happening using a bag. The ones I've seen fail.....I
think this was the case.
 In my opinion......one of the coolest things about model rocketry is the
amount of different ways there are to do the same thing:-). We all keep
learning because of this. Take care, back:-).

That's how flamewars get started between like minded folks :(
