How to make hobby rocket “sugar motors” using sugar and kitty litter, that shoot up over 2,300 feet high, and cost less than $0.50 to make.

(http://bit.ly/IBEasyPVCRockets) If you check out the link, please share the love and let Jason know that Grant Thompson sent you. :) Thank you! My friend NightHawkInLight also has an awesome video on a different method of making a cored rocket with black powder. You can see that here: http://bit.ly/IBBPCoredRockets WARNING: Rockets are not toys, and this project really should not be duplicated. This video is mainly for educational and demonstrational purposes. If you’re going to attempt it anyway, I highly suggest contacting local rocket clubs to become familiar with local laws, and how to stay out of trouble with the FAA, and avoid hurting any people or property. Playing with unstable rocket motors could result in serious injury, property damage and/or legal ramifications. Use of this video content is at your own risk. You should be aware that misuse, or careless use, of rocket propellants or ignition of an incendiary or explosive material may not be legal in your area. Check local laws and inquire with local rocketry clubs on how to safely make and launch sugar rockets. Project History & More Info: After making my video on Homemade Rocket Fuel (http://bit.ly/DIYRocketFuel) I had a lot of requests on how I built the one that launched at the end of the video. Although that rocket motor worked very well, I wanted to get the process down to a science before making a video about it. This project video shows a slightly different approach to the sugar motor using the same ingredients, and a demonstration of how the rocket motor performs. The main difference is that this is rammed powder as opposed to caramelizing the sugar mix. Sugar rockets are the slowest burning of all rocket fuels, and it's highly unlikely that PVC will explode when using kitty litter plugs and sugar for the propellent. In all my destructive testing, and controlled attempts to get one to fail catastrophically, the PVC was never damaged. All that would happen is that the plugs would blast out. Saying that, I wouldn't use PVC with black power rockets. That is a different story altogether. These motor blasted up over 2,300 feet high without any payload, which has been very consistent with all the motors I made for the project video. Some people wonder how I was able to measure it at 2,300 feet high. It's a rough guess based on my raw video footage. I was able to detect the apogee of the rocket by a timed delay mix showing the arch, then measuring the time from apogee to impact. It was just about 12 seconds exactly, and I entered that into a gravity calculator for falling objects (http://www.gravitycalc.com/) and got a result of 706 meters, which is 2,316 ft. Although the project video shows step-by-step how to build the motors, I would caution anyone wanting to make one to take precautions. These are not toys. They can light things on fire, and fall down on peoples heads, which I imagine could cause serious injury. You may need permits, or only be able to launch these on special experimental launch days with local rocketry clubs. My launch was out in the middle of the dessert, miles and miles away from any people, property and anything flammable. Safety precautions were in place in case anything went wrong. Having said that, I’m very proud of how these little motors perform, and amazed at how cheaply they can be made. To see how to add a time delay mix and parachute ejection charge, make sure to watch part 2 (Redneck Rocketry) http://bit.ly/RedneckRocketry

http://rocketstoves.org * IMPORTANT NOTE * be sure to use BLACK STOVE PIPE when building rocket stoves... apparently, the silver galvanized piping used in this video releases toxins while burning. will be recreating this video soon to reflect my new understanding... vavrek shows how to make a large rocket stove and introduces solar cooking.

Check out SonicDad.com to see more great projects! http://www.sonicdad.com/ SonicDad's Bottle Rocket Project: http://youtu.be/BR6n31OphuY v v v v v v v Click 'Show more' v v v v v v v Some of you that have followed me for a while might recognize this project as an upgraded version of my water bottle rocket launcher, seen in this video: http://youtu.be/YRtFY_O0HcU While the old design was the cause of quite a few singed arm hairs, this new model is much more pleasant to use due to the new blast shield as well as the distance from the rockets that has been achieved by having the igniter on a longer leash. Even so, safety glasses are a required precaution, just in case. I recently participated in leading some science based activities for grade school aged kids and these bottle launchers were a big hit. The kids had a lot of fun attaching craft foam fins onto the bottles with duct tape and hot glue. The launchers themselves only take about 20 minutes to put together, so it's a quick and easy project that offers a ton of entertainment. The rockets are fueled by the combustion of rubbing alcohol, which is ignited by the spark from a barbecue igniter. I used rubbing alcohol with a concentration of about 90% in the video, but any concentration of 70% or greater should work just as well. When fueling the bottles, the most important step as shown in the video is to whip the last drops of liquid alcohol out the open end. This brings the fuel/air mixture to the proper level for a good combustion, and reduces the liquid alcohol particles expelled from the rocket upon launch that otherwise could melt the plastic blast shield or cause minor burns. A neat trick I did not mention in the video is that once the bottles have been fueled, rather than pushing them onto the launcher the cap can be put back on the bottle to have it ready to fire later. Parts for this project: (x2) 1.5' x 3/4" PVC Pipe (x2) 10" x 3/4" PVC Pipe 3' x 1/2" PVC Pipe 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/2" PVC Tee (x2) 3/4" PVC Elbow Push Button Barbecue Igniter Extra Wire (about the same diameter as the wires on the igniter) Solder & Heat Shrink Tubing or Electrical Tape Paper Hot Glue Duct Tape 2 Liter Soda Bottle Safety Glasses & Hearing Protection!

Cooking outdoors with twigs as fuel using a Winiarski Rocket Stove I made from a popcorn tin and some 4" galavanized stove pipe. I made this after watcing the Google Video titled "How to make a Rocket Stove". It worked great on the first try. As an experiment, I added an extra section of stove pipe to the top to see what would happen. It created a greater updraft effect that caused the twigs to burn quicker and created a very hot "Rocket" type flame. This was a fun, and very easy project. I intend to get a lot of use out of my Rocket Stove!
