Rockets launcher... but not what you may th

I think your best bet to stay safe is to stick with cardboard and balsa as construction material for any rocket you make regardless of how you launch it. The key here is that it should disintegrate upon impact with, well, anything, as well as be light enough for the commercial rocket engine to propel it. You have a responsibility toward anyone's property that you might damage regardless of the legality of your chosen recreation. I think payload carries the weightier considerations with the law. Of course, localities vary.

Note that most hobby launch stands have some kind of windage adjustment: playing "lawn darts" with tumble recovery mini rockets seems like a fun possibility; in an open field, of course.

I suppose i should count myself lucky that i never got caught launching bottle rocket from a wrapping paper tube as a kid!
