Model rockets are small (and not-so-small !!), reusable ballistic missiles usually constructed of cardboard, wood and plastic. They are often propelled upwards using expendable solid-fuel engines. Some manufacturers use alternate propellants, like pressurized air or water. At the end of the powered phase of flight, the rocket coasts for a few seconds before deploying its recovery system for a slow return back to Earth.
