The Estes Clone I flew on a C6-3

The Hawks Hobby I used an E31-8. The delay was way too long. The chute came out but with the downward position and the airspeed, the chute was blown back and snagged on one of the pod nose cones. The passenger section crumpled badly. I am in the process of repairing it now.

CTI has an E31 that comes with a 15 sec delay (24mm). I drilled it down to 8 sec. Should have dropped it to 6

I didn't know CTI makes motors that small.
Will have to look into those. Is their E31 a full 40n-sec E ?
