Hi everyone, i'm new to this board and i just have a couple questions. I was thinking about taking a nerf ball and putting an Estes model rocket engine in it to make to fly like a real panzerschreck round would.

Does anyone have any ideas that they could help me out with? Anything will be greatly appreciated.

Trying to break someones ribs at all?

The first question is why other than to show a nerf ball in flight?


Just seems a little dangerous....

Wouldn't be allowed in the UK for health and safety reasons, and issues of legality.

i dont plan on using one of the huge rocket motors. probaly one of the smallest engines available will be used. And i also dont plan on firing this at people.

Still wouldn't be permitted - it's an untethered projectile with an unknown flight path; ergo it's highly unlikely anyone over here has built one.

I'd suggest trying the US forum (link in the top right corner of the forum main page) - you'll probably have some luck there!
