Baking soda and vinager are not a sufficient propellant. The chemical reaction does not give off enough energy fast enough to propell a rocket. You can barely explode a soda bottle with baking soda and vinager. No matter how small you make the hole on the valve end of the engine, you will never create enough pressure to move a 1 pound rocket anywhere.
