I've set the 'chutes (both para and drogue) on this rover to deploy when safe. However, they consistently deploy immediately on arming and so are destroyed.

When I list this as "always" happening I mean on this car, On a normal deployment on an incoming capsule they work as you would expect.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Get the rover up to an "unsafe speed" - 450 to 500 m/s should work.
2) Stage the 'chutes, watch 'em shred...

Might this be happening in this instance because of the higher atmospheric pressure at sea level?
