Successful flight but had a few issues:

The igniter lit but failed to light the motor on the first try. I had to get another one from Bernie and that lit it no problem.

After sitting on the pad for an hour, I was concerned with the battery life on the RunCam so I replaced it with a fresh one when I walked out to replace the igniter.  I must have forgotten to hit the record button after the swap because all I got was an hour long video of the ground followed by me replacing the igniter and then reaching for the camera.  Sucks, it would have been a spectacular video.

At launch, the rocket came off the rail at the wrong angle and landed in the trees 1.4 miles down wind. The booster was almost touching the ground so I was able to wrestle the rest down with no damage other than a few scratches.
