|Model rocketry--you may remember it
as "Estes Rockets"--is a hobby built around pre-manufactured solid rocket
engines. The challenge is to build a model that flies the highest, stays up longest,
looks most like real rocket, glides, helicopters, or parachutes down, or looks just plain
cool on the ground or in the air. I specialize in scale model rockets, but I fly
contests motivate me to build all kinds of model rockets. Large model rocketry
eventually becomes the relatively new hobby of high-power rocketry. High power is a
bit expensive for my taste, but you may want to explore it, too.
