My first Exciter tesla coil! (Test 1)

In this video I test my first tesla coil in exciter configuration using 9v battery 
and 2x AA batteries (DC Boost converter), I guess I have to work on the pancake coil 
and find a better load to get a wide range!
Note: The length of the secondary is 17cm and the diameter is 3cm and there 
are 700-800 turns of 0.25mm wire (The only wire i have at the moment) 
(By the way, the magic ratio for small coils is 5:1 => 15cm x 3cm)
