The dark green patch is the how-high. It is a little fuzzy since I put a small patch of blenderm over it to keep from shifting about.
The small hole between the two strips of carbon tow is where the LED is routed. It needs to be exposed to the sunlight or any bright light source to be able to trigger it to read out the data.
Just in case it wasn't clear where the LED was, I caught a blink on camera to highlight its location.

Scanned image from Dream-Flight manual showing where I added the 3/4oz FG.
No color on top since it usually shows through the bottom with the sun above it and can get confusing to orient.
Only the bottom was colored.
Very visible in the sky with angled lines to aid in orientation. I think next time i will use lines parallel to centerline.
Carbon strip for the launch peg. I like its "bite" on the finger better than a round rod.
Launch peg made from a carbon strip fashioned into an airfoil. Fixed at a slight angle parallel to the vertical fin.
Hardpoint for the launch peg made with 5-min epoxy and microballoons. So far, its held up very nicely.
I used carbon tow to reinforce the pod/wing joint.
