Have you ever used Estes model rockets? What would you think about making a prototype that just stacked a huge amount of rocket engines (model rocket engines) on the back and start to see how it actually works?

The engines are nicely designed so that they only fire from electrical impulse. You can set them on fire they will not even catch .

What is cool is they are however also designed to launch in stages…when stacked in series…so when one burns out…the next ignites. So you can use microcontroller to set up staged flight/ignition.

Lucky folks. My aeromodelling group and I had to visit the police commissioner multiple times just to convince him that we wouldn’t kill anyone. :P
