Purpose. And I'm not gonna blow my fingers off (or my dick, Girly, though if I do I'll request my forum name be changed to GirlyMuffs) because I'm not a fucking idiot who will completely neglect safety.

Quote:The picture I posted of the rocket I built is an example of what can be done with about $500 and a little time, and done safely. It is high power, but still a model. It doesn't contain a guidance system beyond the fins, nor does it have ordnance in it (except for the ejection charge for the parachute, which is about a teaspoon of black powder).

Oh, much cheaper than I expected. Though I still don't have $500 nor the tools/machines required to make such a rocket. At least not yet.



So I have a bit of an issue. I live in the middle of a city and only have a bicycle.
I mean I live next to a lake but I wanna ideally retrieve it afterwards and ideally not need diving equipment to do so.
I suspect you need a lot of space to launch something like this. Maybe something a little bigger than a local park?

It depends greatly on two things.

How high you expect your rocket to go and wind conditions.

Less wind = less area needed.

higher altitudes = more area needed.
