The Hell Boy 50 flew

I swiped this photo of Boris' Hell Boy 50 boosting with 31 black powder motors. Just look at all those flames! He reports that all motors lit but, because it weather cocked severely, the conditions for the safe ignition of the sustainer weren't met. Nevertheless, the laundry came out as planned. He'll fix the small zipper and will re-build the booster for another attempt later this month....but with MORE motors in the booster. Guess the rocket's name will have to be updated.
