Cherokee-D's with D engines in ANY wind are recoverable generally only when using a streamer.
Use about a 90"x3" length of crepe paper.
With no wind, a 12" chute with a 4-6" spill hole works okay.
Forget the 18" chute; good way to lose one even on a C11.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't
