Bike Booster Rocket

This project evolved out of my need to invent an Iron-Man-esque suit, specifically the rockets on his feet and hands.  Here, I’m testing butane (lighter refill fluid) as a possible fuel, as it’s cheaply and easily bought.  The combustion chamber is highly inefficient and barely works to provide a boost at all, it’s more for the 3 foot flame jet shooting out the back of my bike as I’m going down the street.
