I can imagine! Is that how you get it to gain more than 60 feet in altitude?

The flame from the booster will burn a large hole in the bottom of the "bag" unless a heat sheild is installed - and that weight would be very bad.

I've seen it done several times without any problems.

Hrm... I wonder what combo of motors we could use to maximize performance? I'm thinking the booster would need enough to get the whole stack off the ground and moving with enough speed for the fins to take effect, then the subsequent stages would be just enough to counteract the drag and impart a moderate amount of acceleration (namely to decrease chance of scrunching/flexing of the airframe) ?
