Very cool,

I assume those are bottle rockets? Some photos of the launcher would be great!

how do you ignite them?

Can you send me that link too?

That is just to cool to pass up. I live out on a farm which would be a perfect place to fly and test.

Thanks,

Brilliant! I always dreamed of doing that hahahaha... i would have tried to use a glow plug for ignition, but could you share your ignition secret?

would be great to have an RC dogfight with two planes having a go at each other using rockets! or a ground attack!

cant wait for your in flight video!

best wishes,
KM

Not much of a secret there... Itīs a stripped down wire (only one string left) enbedded in a little gunpowder...

It sucks in Britain you cant get bottle rockets only larger ones which my plane doesnt have the power to carry into the air.

Ah okay!

getting a shot like that isnt that difficult, since i work in film , i have seen things like it before...

get a wide angle of the attack run, letting it come towards you. (steady camera) have some bigger xplosives wired in the ground.... fire the missiles, hit the trigger and bobs your uncle..

will one day try the same with a stuka i am building at the mo...

also, getting one of those on board cams(multipod 5) rigged up on the fuselage might add a totally new level...

best wishes,
KM
