The World's Best Water Rocket...
have very fond memories of flying water rockets when I was too young to
use fly anything that involved combustion. But existing systems I
now see are all either simple and uncontrollable or complex and
expensive; and all of them are inefficient.
This led me to design a
new water rocket system, okay the "World's Best" title is subjective!
But my system is simple, with only three bespoke plastic parts,
therefore cheap to make and assembled by the consumer; intrinsically
safe, so therefore able to employ higher air pressure for much better
flights; and controllable, have a real countdown rather than cringing
round a corner waiting for it to launch at some point!
keeping with user friendliness, it will work with any standard plastic
carbonated soft drinks bottle, though bespoke bottles would give better
performance still. A working prototype is available for
demonstration and CAD files are ready for tooling in all major 3D
