Jerry-rigged pyro

Post by Water Rocket Expert »

This morning I slapped some fins on a cardboard tube with hot melt glue and added a paper nose cone. Here's the launch. It was snowing out and I wasn't using a great camera at the time so it is not great but still cool.

Cool, wonder why it recorded sideways on you.

O that is because I wanted to get more of the rocket in the camera.

I lost every rocket I launched with a C motor.
