Nice looking launcher. What are you using for the launch rods?

Thanks, using 12mm diameter aluminium tubes, picked up at the local hardware store.

The launcher is inspired by a tutorial from George Katz at Air Command (http://www.aircommandrockets.com/constr ... m#Launcher)

Hi! Nice to know there is someone else in Melbourne interested in Water Rockets :)
I am in Docklands, basically the CBD, what part are you in?
How far have you got with rocketry?

Hi Graham,

I am in Mulgrave, out east before dandy.

I have been doing water rocketry for over 10 years.

I do rocketry with the cub scouts as I am a leader and also personally.

You can see one of the quad launchers I built for cubs as my pic.
