Candybar (Milkyway) Rocket Engine

Step 7: Woosh!

Picture of Woosh!
It was ignited by a small bit of cannon fuse, I'm pretty sure we could use a standard esties rocket engine igniter, but we didn't have any on hand.




Might be a little anticlimactic, since we didn't actually put it in a rocket and launch it,  or even strap a stick to it and make a big bottle rocket.  but we currently have some burn restrictions here (drought), so we are keeping it on the ground for now.  That will come in the future.

For full disclosure, a lot of my engine building design was strongly influenced by these videos. And by talking to other amateur rocket enthusiasts.
