Great video! What a nice rocket. Did you use "nose cone off at apogee" to trigger the chute?

looks like he wraps the band around a clockwork (tomy timer) and the flag is used to pull the keeper pin out?

Hi, the rocket has a Tommy timer with side deployment. The flag is attached to a the Tommy timer and this falls off at liftoff to start the Tommy timer.

Thanks for your comments. This was a A+ School project, we had to do it three times for the class and the school.

Good video


I come from China, do not understand English, your information I use the translation software to view. I like water rockets, technology is the same, I hope we can become friends.
