I must say,......this is a really nice rocket. It flew and ejected flawlessly. I posted the video with my make.

Glad to hear it!! I have to be honest, I was real nervous when I first launched mine as though I was "Mostly sure" it would work, I had a little doubt. I'd also had a bad launch day, losing one rocket in a tree and having three more fail in some way or another, mainly separation issues. So having this one fly flawlessly for me made everything else that day worth it.

It's too bad you didn't capture the recovery, this rocket was designed specifically to make the recovery more fun to watch.

Oh I fully intend on replacing the current video with a full length one. Liftoff to landing. I may add another small chute for the Internal tube, after 2 drops with only a streamer to see it and slow it down, it now needs to be replaced from hitting the ground without a chute

Probably a good idea to add a chute. I used at least 6 feet of a two inch wide streamer, which helps slow it. I also usually launch over soft ground.
