    My fav so far is my daughters rocket named Under Pressure. Reminds me of the ZZTOP song, the motor coming up to pressure and the pressure I was under to build another rocket after screwing up the launch and recovery of her last rocket.

    The foam pi actually rides inside the pumpkin and is released at apogee to float down on it's own. The "rocket goes up as a pumpkin, and comes down as pi (pie)."

    He flew it at LDRS and the foam came down relatively close to the flight line (close enough to see what it was anyway). He made pi in the sky, the effect was perfect.

    - Tinfoil satellite. Small body. Big nose cone. Big, square, and crooked fins that look like they're made out of Tinfoil. Surprisingly, it flies great. It's less then a foot tall and I've even flown it on a G a few times

    Since brevity is the soul of wit, how about just "Other People's Mistakes" as a rocket name?

    Yes, I was quite impressed with 'The NUNisher' at LDRS.

    I’m partial to “Tank Killer,” but it might have something to do with the nosecone. 23DA5904-39E1-4ABB-A720-9CFFA137AEEC.jpeg

    Titan Uranus Probe

    It never flew, but it hung from the ceiling of a rocket shop in Phoenix and gave customers a chuckle.
