Ouch, I am hot!
I am looking for suggestions for good places to launch beginner rockets near my side of town - north side of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.

used to do those in the late 80s. We didnt always have money for a new rocket so we just glued fins right onto a C engine and set it off on the back patio. one of them hit the overhang of the roof and hung there because of the propulsion. when its stationary you can really see the 2-3 foot flame shooting out the back. I'm suprised theyre even legal in AZ because of the fire hazard.eatdrinkride said:Just try to be sure there aren't many people around. 2 years back I got the itch to revisit rockets with my son. After many launches in our neighborhood park without issue (and gathering a small audience), we sent one up and the chute did not open. That little 12'' rocket came straight down like a..........well, like a rocket. It stuck about 4 inches into the packed ground. Had it hit some kid square on top of the head it would have been really bad.
You, being a lawyer, should appreciate the implications of this
