Back in the early 80's I knew of several TOY shoulder-fired simulated-bazookas with a "flour payload" using model rockets with D12 motors. Some had stick-stabilization (lousy on a horizontal plane), some had fold-out fins, and some had stubby fins. The folding-fin ones flew fairly straight. NONE of the launches were anywhere near vertical nor did they resemble anything close to the safety code other than most were electrically launched.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!
No DIRECT and MEASURABLE Harm=NO Foul advocate

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask, you probably aren't
