Question by tkp9999: What powers model rockets?
Is that an enjoyable hobby?
Answer by Beth L
The smaller estes rockets use black powder.
The bigger ones (the ones you need level 1-3 certification) use amodium perculate (if I could even spell that right). The certication levels relate to the size of the “engine” you can use. You do not need certication for the small estes rockets.
It is an enjoyable hobby. You just need tons of patience and time. I used to do it but quit because I did not have the time between college and work.
Good luck and enjoy!
