    As a rocketry hobbyist and a quadcopter flyer, I saw the title of the video and expected to watch it then moan about the stupidity of some people. (And seeing the user's name didn't make me feel any better.)

    But ....

    That was cool. The rocket was launched vertically using an electrical launch system and a launch guide as required by our safety code.

    That was... uneventful. Not bad though!

    Jadebox... then you would have cringed at the modified rockets my friends and I used to come up with for shytes and grins... can you say sealed nosecone, booster engine and black powder?

    It goes BOOM!

    Never launched it from anything r/c... but we did launch from a helium balloon... vertically.... but we used a launch rod, m'kay?
    (no rednecks were hurt in the experimentation that occurred... unless you count feelings and crop damage)
