This porta potty rocket looks great and flew to 500 feet.

I am really surprised it had a stable flight.  Now on to a large model.

How big is this current model? Size of the toilette is about 20 to 25 cm?

That excludes the fins and the lid.  I need to measure it with them

Is there a GPS-tracker in the rocket or is 500ft an estimation. Funny model!

@jsw and @cwbullet need to get together and start setting altitude records for 3D printed locomotives.

Well, in a way you can honestly say that the original V2 was steam driven.  😉

I may have been doing this for longer than Elon, but his crew beings things to a new level.  It takes a lot to impress me.  He does.  The recovery landings are truly amazing.

True about some projects of him - but there are also projects which should go into your Porta Potty 😉

Uh, am I  missing something here?

What's the point of blasting off a porta potty rocket?

You can't have space tourism without rest stops. This is an important first step.

Just to say it will fly.  Folks have flown a real port potty on an R motor.  They will fly with the right fins.
