9 Ft Foam Rocket at METRA Launch Event June 4, 2016
METRA Rocket Launch Event, Pine Island, June 4, 2016. This was a scratch-built 9-foot tall high-power model rocket made from 1/4-inch thick sheet foam insulation purchased at Lowes and rolled into tubes. There were 2 motors; an Aerotech H45W-PS and Estes F15-6. The H45 was plugged, so the F16 provided the ejection charge. The payload was a 1-foot tall Minion doll named "Kevin" that returned with a separate chute.
