I am new to model rocketry and I don't wish to launch a rocket in the air at all. I am experimenting with pyrotechnics & I am wondering if it's possible to attach a black powdered safety fuse to a solid propellant rocket engine that would then be able to ignite the safety fuse? If so, would I also need a controller to initiate the igniter

I'm a little concearned by your statement about experimenting with pyrotechnics.

As as for starting rocket motors we always use electrical start for safety reasons. You should not need a fuse for this at all

So if you use a rocket motor to "light" the fuse.....what does the fuse light?

Since you have been directed to a place where you can get the answers that you need, and since this really is a subject that, for safety reasons, we prefer not to discuss here, this thread is now locked.
