    For Halloween

    I have decided I want to try to launch a pumpkin.
    Not chunk one with an air cannon....I want to strap some D sized rocket engines to one and launch it.

    A little pumpkin? We are building a life sized scarecrow.

    This demands video. How many D's you think it will take to launch such a heavy item?

    There was a thrust chart somewhere, I think Estes...http://www2.estesrockets.com/cgi-bin...pgm?p=publicat

    you are welcome

    edit- side note...you better think hard on how you are going to secure these to the pumpkin. I am telling you now that a loose D engine hurts like hell when it hits you....don't ask how I know.
