"Chute Spool"

Gary Slater

Anyone else see this?  A non-electronic, non-pyro delayed chute release idea.  
Any thoughts about it?

As I understand it, one basically has to use trial and error adjustments in case your chute releases too early or too late.  And particularly for smaller rockets, it means added weight which means higher thrust motors and delay timing issues??
