    Too bad he can't get them to fly straight at highway speeds. That would be an awesome way to mess with someone poking around, launch a few rockets past their window.

    Makes me think of Mr. Grimm from the Twisted Metal series.

    They are actually Estes model rocket engines on stabilizer sticks. So it's a much more powerful engine (still very low power in real terms) than a bottle rocket, but essentially the same thing.

    It would probably be fairly easy to make them fly straight, you would just have to make it more 'rocket like' by having an actual nose cone, body and fins. That would be neat.
