No, model rocket engines are not black powder. One reason i know this is b/c its not black, but it probally has aluminum powder in it or something similar. Black powder and other powders like it aren’t really an explosive, they’re just combustable. You can buy a pound of pyrodex(safer version of black powder–synthetic) at K-mart for like $13. It has different grade which just means how fine the powder is. The finer the powder the better.  I used to use rocket engines. I perfer sparklers. It burns better, and get more hot.     hope this helps
