Beautiful flight of this gorgeous rocket. Boosted straight up with that distinctive smoke trail.  The parachute got tangled so it came down fairly fast but the whole thing created a lot of drag so it wasn't a lawn dart. The nosecone stuck in the (fortunately) soft dirt and the body landed sideways. No visible damage thank goodness.
