You can use hand-made black powder with this kit (but be sure and follow our project instructions closely). You definitely do not need a ball mill.
If you're going to hand-mix your black powder rocket fuel, you'll need a screens--40-mesh is best. If you don't already have one, you can add it to your order. For hand-mixed BP, you'll also need a blade-type coffee mill (cheap at WalMart).
Now, if you want to make black powder easier, faster, and with less work, a ball mill is the way to go (use lead balls to mill your BP). You can definitely crank out more BP with far less work and hassle this way.
You can fly your black powder rockets day or night, with or without a heading. Flying Fish fuse and Falling Leaves fuse make great, light-weight headings.
