The above website is the Rolls Royce of amateur rocketry. For those interested in rocketry as a long term hobby this is the place to go for guidance.

While in Peshawar about a decade and a half ago, I built the C-400 engine and did two test firings on ground. The sound is AWESOME. However in the 3rd firing the igniter exploded rather than burn. The pressure spike blew the head off. We got so scared that we did not pursue it any further.

For those living in urban areas in Pakistan this is probably not a good hobby. Due to the security problem the pansaris are not allowed to keep potassium nitrate anymore and you have to do with less efficient sodium nitrate as oxidizer. All in all it is a shame that we cannot pursue the hobby any longer.

But there is no doubt it is a very exciting.
