Please don't go telling me it's dangerous, its not. If you are willing to let hem off on a 5m RIB, letting them go in the back garden cannot be any more risky.
Great fun, except when they work perfect, I wonder, should I have kept them another year???
Until the para fails to open & it comes down like a scud missile & punches a hole through a conservatory/ car porch roof or rolls still hot or burning into someone's plastic gutter setting it all on fire ,
Also Be wary of setting of the floating smoke flares especially if its foggy or heavy mist in the garden especially with the 5 min burn ones ,,, know of someone that did that only to find out next morning that all the lawn and everything in the adjoining gardens were covered in a tarry orange dye , local cats had orange bellys for weeks after .
I do know of a safe-ish way to dispose if para rockets though it's not for the faint hearted .
