Yepp, the 48 hours of legal fireworks fun in Germany are fast approaching. Last year I exploited them with fire crackers, this year my attention shifts to rockets. I want to make a launch tower for fireworks rockets. By law those rockets can not exceed 100 meters, most won't even reach 60 meters. I am thinking with a launch tower of 2 meters height and 60 lb of a draw, I can add 60 or 80 meters easily. The idea is to shoot them up when the rocket is just about to begin the acceleration phase through it's fuel charge. 60 meters "fuel" + 80 meters "rubber" = 140 meters total height So I cock the bands, light the fuse, wait until the sparks begin to sputter, put my foot on the launch pedal and send the igniting rocket skywards! Hopefully my rockets will dominate the town's sky this year. Should be cool.
