Thanks, I didn't wipe it off, I'm new to copper and solder, I didn't think a roof drain really mattered. I do however need to apply ash auld primer to the areas where the torch on apply and am a little worried about any leftover flux. What do u use to clean it off. Thanks for any replies

Bitumen is itself pretty caustic and is going to do its thing, but wiping it off preserves more life along the weak point, the joint. Your work is nice and clean. My only suggestion on the overflow is to integrate a drip point on the outside. Controlling the drip off keeps excess water from siphoning back under the piece or against the outside wall to some extent.

And wiping down the piece with a clean rag and clean water is how I do it. We've used baking powder before but it didn't add any value to the cleaning. The water should be used liberally as it dilutes acid/flux paste.
