Orange Crate O' Death

My next project, as found on EMRR:

A D and E powered boost glider, made from an orange crate. Or in my case, a clementine crate. No idea how it'll fly, But it'd rock on an E15-4 composite.

Also, in case anyone wondered, the chemical formula for APCP (Ammonium Perchlorate Composite Propellant) is NH4ClO4, and because it decomposes below the point of melting, it releases enough oxygen, like blackpowder, to burn sans oxygen...like on the moon. Imagine sending a G-motor rocket into orbit.... course, there's not much you can do in the way of recovery systems...
