So I've been interested in taking up model rockets as a hobby, but so many people are about building bigger rockets that fly higher and so on and so forth. I've decided to take a different approach - make the smallest functioning rockets we can. The idea is that we meet in a room with an eight-foot ceiling, and compete to see who can build rockets that fly the highest *without* hitting the ceiling. Other conceivable contests are possible - rockets that fly a figure-8, or launch straight up and then curve over and aim for a dartboard, or multi-stage rockets, etc. I figure rockets would be made from soda and cocktail straws and wouldn't need pesky things like parachutes.
Goggles and nose-plugs are mandatory during launches (nobody wants a rocket up their left nostril).
I haven't tried any of this. Just another of my hare-brained schemes.
Who here is crazy enough to join me in this disaster?
