Fwiw...I think the trap-dri would be a very high % superfluous...as the gel would absorb the major remainder % of the moisture,leaving 0 to no moisture to be poured off from the trap-dri.

Keep in mind, the Bannatyne Dri-Flos are not the same as the silica bags/cannisters. They attach directly to the drone stocks, but not the blowpipe or chanter stocks. My current setup is a trap-dri tube/ bottle (which one depends on the set of pipes), plus Dri-Flo tubes for the drones. The tube/bottle/Trap-Dri lets some moisture into the bag for the chanter reed, and the Dri-Flos keep it out of my drones. Your milage may vary, but it works well for me with a Bannatyne hybrid bag.
