    LOL :) This was my first rocket! It's a great test of the Z-axis, I'd like to find some way to launch it tho... That would be lots of fun!

    I have a friend who builds model flying rockets and I will pass this by him to see if it I possible to use a rocket motor in a plastic rocket, then there might be a purpose ;-)

    Mike, that is not the correct question. The correction question is "can you use them in a plastic rocket, more than once?" Everything can (and benefits from) use of a rocket engine at least once! Hey, pass me that butter dish. Whoosh!

    My previous question was inductive. Now I know: It's all rocket science what we do here. Great! Rock it!
    An onboard launch from your SUP board, yeah! ;)

    True Henry! Of course I was thinking of re-use like Space-X and Blue Origin in the grand scheme of things ;-)

    Is the rocket air tight? if so look at those from the science museum etc that are part filled with water and then pumped up with air from a bicycle pump. It may not go into orbit but fifty feet isn't unreasonable

    If you look at Estes rockets, the motors back fire allowing you to pop the nose cone and deploy a parachute. (Add a little cotten/wadding/filter floss so you don't light your parachute on fire)

    If you built that into the design should be possible to reuse, the motor would just need to be mounted so the exhust doesn't melt the bottom of the rocket.

    Otherwise would be a fun one off launch :)

    I would start with a small B class motor for Estes probably if you wanted to reuse it, otherwise go C :)
