Delta pressure test 1

Yesterday saw the Delta rocket have its first pressure test the rocket performed well up to 50 psi when booster 2  had a slight leak the problem was as the nozzle had moved upwards in the gardena connector as with this design it only takes 5-8mm of movement and the o ring comes out of its seat so i will bend the booster wire connectors to ensure less movement on the next test as i released the rocket from the launcher it seemed to all move together correctly so im hoping we should have a successful launch soon.
