    Hi from Denmark

    Hi all I am a 50 year old guy, who has been flying small and simple rocket models with my son. Now I have bought a Mid-power Aerotech Initiator 3 feet tall. So still a small rocket. I don't know about any club in Denmark to small hobby rockets, so if there is any other from Denmark here, write :-)

    Using Side Thrusters on a missile to create an angular acceleration

    Assume a rocket is standing on the ground with mass = 1000 kg, and near the top of rocket we apply a force of 100 N for say 1 sec,now assume that this is sufficient to tip rocket over/start tipping over. If the rocket is mid air and accelerating at 30m/s^2, then likewise how much force would be...
