    Just checked, my 4.3 oz. Aspire would come off a 6 ft. rod at 32 fps. The G8 weighs 5.4 oz. It can barely lift itself off the pad, much less a rocket, but it will burn for 17 seconds....

    You need to think a little differently with this motor.

    Your rocket would need to be really light or have active guidance.

    As soon as Tim/Wildman has these in stock, I have several ideas for them. @adrian- do you happen to have any shirts with a bright red and white bullseye on them? :)
