Delay Element

A model rocket motor includes a delay element. The delay element burns after the motor's propellant has been exhausted. The delay element is designed to produce little thrust and visible smoke. This allows the rocket to coast to its apogee before the motor's ejection charge deploys the recovery system. The smoke produced by the delay element makes visual tracking of the rocket easier.
