Safety Restriction for CTI Vmax Motors

In line with evidence and advice from other rocketry organisations, UKRA is now requiring all flyers using CTI Vmax motors to use at least one form of electronic deployment for recovery systems.
This measure is being implimented, due to the high numbers of delay grains snuffing out, resulting in no recovery system deployment in rockets relying solely on motor ejection.
