    Also, this post should be a lesson to others that you shouldn't just automatically trust that everyone on instructables.com 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."

    If you're going to rip someone else's work....at least learn how to upload photos that help.

    What are the exact materials for this rocket???

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


    Pretty detailed drawings

    how high can it go

    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.

    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
