I used to have a couple of those. I even tried making one from scratch but it was too heavy for the small motors. I was living just on the edge of the Bay of Fundy last time I launched one (many years ago) and it was during low tide. Wind took it out towards the water, had to climb down the cliff and retrieve it before the time came in. After that I always gave it a little extra angle AWAY from the water.

Yeah, it was a lot of fun on Sunday when we fired off the Amazon 6 times. I'm trying to contact the local rocketry club to see if we can go watch some big boys, like seen here:

I remember when Estes brought out the oracle, that was quit a bit after I was into rockets but a neighbor had one. it was mind blowing stuff to see a takeoff from the rockets perspective. I am sure there is a modern version now.
