This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

Yes, they spout fire out the end to pop the parachute
but it's more a puff than a bang. Should be enough to light the pyro package, tho.

The can-behind-the-rocket design sounds unpredictable!

A D motor gives 20 N-sec impulse, or an average of 12N for a little under 2 seconds. The weight of the can is going to be around 2N at a guess. So you won't get much height. But we're not bothered about the pressurisation, so emptying out the can into capsules strapped around the pyro would work.

This is all of course hypothetical...
