Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
1. A Pvc pipe at least twice the lenght of the bottle.
2. A waterbottle that fits in the pipe.
3. A plastic tube
4. Corke thing
5. Baking soda
6 Vinegar
7. Cone (not pictured, too lazy)
8. Duct tape.


(I made this before I knew about instructables so there aren't many pictures)

Step 2: Cut the pipe

I found the right size pipe in my garage, it can be as long as you like for improved accuracy, but at least twice the length of the water bottle.

Step 3: Insert cone

Picture of Insert cone
Insert a plastic cone (or anything else to block one end) and cover the same end with duct tape. If you leave holes in the tape, it will have the backfire effect of a bazooka.

Step 4: Enjoy!

This can be used with any bakingsoda vinegar rocket you want. look up how to make the rocket, or keep following this instructable.
*Warning, you might get covered in a very nasty smelling gunk, could get in eye*

Step 5: Building the rocket

First, put the cork into the small tube, I got mine off of a rocket kit. Fill the tube about three fourths of the way with baking soda. Fill the water bottle with vinegar untill you can tip it completely horizontal without spilling. When it is horizontal, carefully insert the bakingsoda filled tube without spilling the soda into the vineger. Then flip the bottle cork side down and tighten the cork.

Step 6: Putting in

Slide the bottle carefully into the launcher. When time to launch, tip the launcher down and back up in one movement, dumping the bakingsoda into the vinegar and bring it back up, seen in vid.

Step 7: Make Minis!

You can cut the bakingsoda tube to fit in mini bottles to make a small RPG that goes farther.


The vids below are my friends and I messing with the rockets (the music was playing on the radio behind us, didn't know the camera caught it)

In vinegar grenades be sure so scratch the side of a bottle to give a weakspot leading to a better explosion.
i tried it, and it can also be a vinegar grenade :)

OH SNAP. Time to mod my original blue prints! I just got the idea of putting the rocket in the front like a real rpg, and then use a water rocket set up to shoot it (I've done water rockets before).

I just got a youtube account. I put the vid on this instructable.
Cool! L

If you talking about audio video file, The vid is on Windows media player, can you not get to it?
It's the video codec I seem to need, it's probably never been installed on this machine. But if you encoded with Windows Movie Maker - my copy of WMM shouldn't be telling me it needs a codec?
Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  lemonie8 years ago
No, I didn't use movie editing for this clip. I'll try to make it from movie maker and see if it works. Hmmmm...
Wait, rocket kit. Was it that crappy CO2 powered rocket kit with those little lighting bolds on the side. I loved that thing. Also what is "CONE"? Do you mean a pylon cone? Thanks
Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  NTOcomander #08 years ago
Yep :) The cone is just to block one side so the bottle doesn't fall out. It is a thin plastic one that was the front of the rocket in the kit that I salvaged. You can use anything really, its not a critical part.

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  manmelvin8 years ago
Im thinking of putting my rideable hovercraft on here, its allready built so i wouldn't be able to show the steps with pictures.
I'd like to point out really quickly that using grammar can really make or break an instructable. For one, it's "Vinegar". And two, capitalize the first word of each sentence. The rest seems okay.
dude rememba the "Be nice" comment policy. jkjkj
