Q & A
QUESTION: I know nothing about rockets, but my boys are interested. I see you need to buy wadding, and engines. Do you also need to buy ignitors? by K D 11/26/2011
ANSWER: You definitely need igniters, but they usually come bundled with the engines and wadding. One reason to buy extra igniters is that sometimes they misfire, and it's helpful to have extra around. by Charles C 11/28/2011
