RPG-type device would require some skills to get the impact trigger right and such, but shouldn't be impossible. However, non-explosive payloads could also be interesting - stuff to foul turbine engines (like on helicopters) like metal shavings (magnesium comes to mind) or paint to coat cameras or windshields.
I have tons of magnesium. Been trying to think of something to do with it.

I would shoot at anything shooting at me, if i had no good alternative. Additionally, model rocketry has handy components like those handy launch controllers and ignitors. Heck, a swarm of the cheapo rockets launched all together might be enough to keep a pilot busy while i split.
Well yeah, I'd return fire. Not gonna instigate a firefight with an airborne asset though. The tough nut to crack would be getting the rocket to target the engines.

Its all just theoretical. None of us can imagine that the government would ever attack its own citizens. The government is our friend, isn't it???

A Cali-legal tank? Is it made by VW?

I have some ideas on targeting, but the easiest would be the swarm approach or fogging the area near the aircraft with dispersed particulates.

Again BobtheFed, aaaaaaaaaaaallllll just talk and theory.

Well then I'm glad you're liking it here, because some of us are professionals on the art of sarcasm!

Hey, there's nothing wrong with not eating sugar! Don't hate.
