Rocket Powered Skateboard

I in no way condone this or suggest anyone else try it. I myself would not try this without some good protection from the motors such as a thick jacket and helmet.  The motors seem rather small for the size of the board, there is no doubt he would get better thrust from a few I motors instead...  A series of I200 motors perhaps?

It is fun to see the little BP motors (probably D12s from the look of it) burn out and then eject after a few seconds, although their ejection times are not quite in sync.  Either they are igniting staggered, or there is subtle variation in the ejection delay.
