    Love the magician as a rocket. The 808 really cripples it since it's so bulky compared to the airframe

    Very nice, with the D12-5, it looks like it was still going up when the ejection charge blew.

    At about the 14-15-16-17 second mark you can see it arc over in apogee, then the ejection charge goes off just as it starts to go nose down.

    And I guess if I had watched the entire video, I would have seen what you referred to. Yep, ejection while still in coast...good shot of the dog barf too.
