    Which end of the match do you light? The one by the foil, or the one by the launcher?

    Technical question: You light it at the end of the match near the launch pad, right?

    when plying the top of the lighter off leave the metal alone. what you are doing when tilted for a period of time the flame melts the plastic and you end up with a second rocket. what you want to do it on the top you'll see 2 flaps holding the "safety" of the lighter pry those off and pull the "safety" off (it should come out with a bit of wiggling)
