For model rockets most people use pyrotechnics (such as in fireworks rockets). However, this can be dangerous and there are legal problems to it. So, I came up with the idea to use water being ejected by carbon dioxide that is generated from baking soda + vinegar (or something similar). Has anyone ever done this? I searched the internet (including Mad Scientists library) but didn't find anything appropriate. Please note: Our model rockets are strictly NON-military For further info see http://members.aol.com/hpboehme/DERA.htm Many thanks, A.
