I wasnt able to watch all the videos, but it looks like your not cooling the engine after it's run. The parts get hot and expand, after running it, air has to be run through the engine to cool it slowly so the metal shrinks properly. You might already know, I just missed it.

This thing is sweet!!

Just saw the trailer thread and had to track this down. Very nice job!

Good luck on the Show, keep us updated. Hopefully we can watch it here.

Nice! I did some scrap together Estes Model Rocket Cars a while back, nothing like this though.

The first switch to ignite the rockets was the same thing you did with the servo. Then I found these remote relay switches. they have 2A, 5A and 10A models. Plugs right into the Rx (any channel). You have to use an external switch power, the Rx only powers the relay. Fairly cheap and they have a fail safe built in.

I can't post links yet, but RobotMarketPlace.com makes them. Just look under electronics/rc interfaces.
