Two Stage Model Rocket: OVERKILL

We launched out two stage rocket @ the NEFAR launch site in Bunnell, Florida. Both stages had a I29-360. The first and second stage lit perfectly, but due to the tremendous force of the I motors, it ripped through the structure and destroyed the flight computer midflight causing no parachute deployment. The first stage dropped to the ground while it's chute went off in the distance (recovered and charred), the coupler also fell, and the second stage (both lower and upper) was recovered in the forest deep in the dirt all messed up. We were glad that both stages lit and we recovered everything!
