Just found this. How do you think he shoots the rocket? He must have to replace the ignitor each time.

 ??? thats basically what i said... alll you would need would be a little bit of electrity and something flamable like paper and when a electronic pulse is sent swooosh..... there it goes... similar to the ignitor put out by ESTES for kids that like rocketry

I made an electric firework ignition system when I was a kid. I used a piece of fine steel wool wrapped around the fuse and had 12V flow through it. I would became very hot and eventually ignite the firework. Hmmm
Microcontroller + fireworks, that's a fun week-end project!

Pretty slick aside from the fact that it was launching just rocket engines no fins which means a completely out of control rocket engine in what looks like a public park with little kids. Pretty irresponsible if you ask me. If you want to risk ones own safety thats one thing but do it away from the general public let alone kids!

most of it is but there is a fair amount of custom work.
