High-Power Sugar Rocket


Excerpt from the article:

Dan Pollino’s 6-foot sugar rocket accelerates to 400mph in 3 seconds and goes 6,000 feet high. It’s an awesome DIY project. To build it, get Dan’s excellent how-to book I Still Have All My Fingers: How to Build a Big Sugar Rocket on a Budget Without Losing a Limb.

We asked Dan how he got into rockets. He took us all the way back.

    Sugar motors are fine to do if your a Tripoli level 2 or above at launch sites . Nothing needed if your on your own . But if more than 125g of proplent you need a FAA waiver .
