I don't know anything about UK regulations/laws. Every motor that'll carry a rocket that high requires L1 or L2 certification here in the US.In that case, are there any that you would recommend? I would like one that goes as high as possible for under £50 (excluding motors).
Unfortunately the F10-8 motor which will take that rocket to a mile isn't available (or legal) in the UK, as far as I know . Wish it was, I love long burn motors. A Commanche 3 is probably your best bet for a cheap, high-flying kit.i've been looking at this http://www.apogeerockets.com/aspire_rocket.asp#mile_high . is there anywhere that I can get this rocket in the uk? if not, are there any others that can go over 1 mile?
Not at all true. Most rockets can't exceed a mile on anything less than an H, but given a small, light, well-optimized design, you can exceed a mile rather solidly on a long burn F or G motor. The main issue with these though is recovery - it can be quite difficult to get a 29mm minimum diameter rocket back from an F10 flight.I don't know anything about UK regulations/laws. Every motor that'll carry a rocket that high requires L1 or L2 certification here in the US.
For example, the rocket I used for my L1 cert, the PML Callisto, will easily go well over a mile on the right motor.
