How are the Rockets shot in to the air. What is the fuel?

Can they be reused over and over again?

How much area / open space do you need to shoot these rockets?

Thanks.

When my kids did this, the rocket was propelled by a solid fuel "engine" that could be replaced for successive launchings. The rockets can be reused but not the engines. The open area will vary depending on the rocket.

there are 2 types of rockets on their site.
1. air powered (never used those so i can't comment on them)
2. solid fuel type. uses an igniter to light a solid fuel engine. you recover the rocket after the flight and insert a new engine and relaunch it.

space needed depends on the rocket. for the smaller engines, something along the size of a school baseball/football field should be okay (Depends on how much wind there is). for bigger engines some type of open park area or place where multiple sport field are joined would be fine.

Fair warning for adults who used to fly as kids: this can be addictive, and the bigger rockets are both more expensive and more addictive (first hand knowledge here;-). For those who only remember the "D" engines as "the big ones", you can easily get engines up to G, and (with the proper certification) they now sell engines up to O size.
