Also, this post should be a lesson to others that you shouldn't just automatically trust that everyone on knows what they are doing. Someone could get hurt following your instructions on this rocket....I wouldn't trust it, simply from the part where you (user who posted this) said:

"i'm realy sorry it was my first instructable. I just wanted to make one. If you want i will delete the instruct able."

This content is not yours. Those pictures and diagrams belong to air commands. This is copyright infringement.

I just realized this has already been stated, but I have a point.

I made a water rocket with boosters from aircommands website....
I used paino wire and carbonfibre tubes.

You can see it on my instructable 'Professional water rocket guide'

It seems you have "borrowed" these pictures without permission. It would be interesting to see if you really built this with straws and paper clips. There are very strong forces involved here.

Here is the original article:

With full details about how this system works and the issues that must be considered.

im realy sorry it was my first instructable. I just wanted to make one.
If you want i will delete the instructable.


PS: Do you know how to post a video?

 Do paperclips and straws really hold up to the immense pressure, and also what is the nozzle that is on the middle bottle cause I can't read the pictures

nice thinking, for some reason it wont let me make it bigger

 So is it a gardena Valve? is it the generic hookup for like an aircompressor, to hook up to an air nailer?

thats the basic idea

they did for me
