    Nice job on the conversion to flight. Looks like a clean build and design elements for flight.

    One question, did you add vent holes to the booster stage? This should help prevent over-pressurization and stage separation prior to the second stage motor ignition.

    That's what the black thing is about mid way down the booster.
