    Its a bit expensive but i made a CO2 assisted chute. I just put a button withen close reach of the steering wheel which was connected to a little pnumatic cylinder and CO2 bottle(Dedenbear)which pulled the cable to deploy the chute. Its nice and tidy and works with ease. No pulling handles at 170MPH anymore.But in saying that there is a handle there for backup.send me your email if you like and ill email you a few pics.If not i can just post them on here for you.
