For a 3 min project it is prety good. I didn't think of the pen but I did think of the explotion th power a metal tube.

Not 80 feet. Nope. Not even CLOSE. More like 20 at MAX at ground level. And it is more of a Launcher than a Rocket. A rocket is self propelled, remember?

how do you get the end off? you know, the side without the pen part? I tried scissors, but they didn't work
