could anybody tell me the method of finding the range of a rocket launched from height h,
the rocket of course is under three forces weight,drag and thrust

well I don't know the answer since you want to put drag and thrust in the game...
Because whatever you do, the equation you'll have to solve will be a 2nd order Differential equation, so you need 2 inputs (initial position and initial velocity). So giving just the height $h$ you can't get an answer :P
