First Multi-staging Success

My summer-long project of multi-staging rockets has had its first success! I staged Double-Trouble from a 137 N-sec G80 motor to a G71 Redline motor. There isn't any data on this flight since I could spare any more weight for electronics, but I got a video. Even that is so-so; I'm so excited when it works that I totally loose sight of the rocket.

Was that an E16 in the upper stage?`

No, after I fixed up the upper stage, the rocket weighed more, so I just said "heck, I'll use a G71." So that's what I did. No altimeter, but I suspect it went the better part of 2000 feet.
