I had a friend who asked me to go shoot some pictures for him at AIR Fest II. He is in this rocket club and let me tell you something, these are some big toys these guys play with. Some of these rockets are over 7 and 8 ft tall. Just thought I would share. It was difficult catching these things before they left the pad. Here are a few shots.

Saw a program on fox with the whole range of home made rockets everything from small to the size you describe the standout was a rocket powered portaloo
the darn thing went a couple of hundred feet in the air with 4 rockets one in each corner with trailing toilet paper cascading from the holders fitted externally,the winner was a rocket that was made by a group of docters with the nasa experianced input it went 16 or 20 km high.
Only one comment (crazy yanks) at risk of starting another riot.

I've seen some of these rockets, and they are cool. They had a demo at one of our radio control airplane fly ins in So Carolina. I was impressed.

BTW, here is an image of my RC airplane big boy toy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I built it from balsa, fiberglass, carbon fiber, and alum. My 14yr old daughter is there for scale
