Tired of spending big money every time you want to launch a rocket. Buy your rocket fuel at 7-Eleven next time, that’s what James Yawn did. Apparently Pixy Stix make good rocket fuel, if you are skeptical as I was have a look at the videos!

Sugar Motor Test

Snickers Bar and Potassium Nitrate Burn Test

“Airframe is an Estes Alpha model. Motor contains 7 grams of Pixy Stix propellant, plus another 4.5 grams to create smoke trail and initiate parachute ejection. It is very similar to the motor static-tested the previous day using this same propellant.”

    you mix the pixy stick (or sugar) with potassium nitrate and sulfur. You use 10% sulfur, 63%potassium nitrate (saltpeter) and 27% sugar or pixy stick.
