It seems to me that Quickburst's "problems" occurred in the midst of doing just that.
It's certainly not my intention to start a flame war. But we
will not lose rocketry in one fell swoop of the administrative or
legislative pen. We will lose it incrementally; one seemingly
innocent regulation after another. Look how hard it is to fly
even modrocs in Kalifornia. (Or here in Aurora, for that matter.)
The "good fight", IMHO, involves the little challenges as much
as it does the big ones. Maybe more so, based upon the history
of government incremental regulation.
PS - I am NOT advocating a hypergolic liquid fueled sport rocket
motor. I was just musing on the hypergolic *concept* as a
possible alternative to pyrogen based igniters.
