Step 1: The Rocket Launcher
You can purchase these cheap rocket launchers in various stores or online. They are called the Power Streak Rocket Launcher.
Step 2: Materialz
You will need: a power streak rocket launcher with rockets; a crosshead (phillips) screwdriver; and a hot glue gun.
Step 3: Unscrew
Unscrew all screws on the gun. Use the screwdriver to pry the halves apart.
Step 4: Remove Rod
Remove the black rod. We will glue this in place to keep it from wobbling around.
Step 5: Apply Hot Glue
Apply hot glue to where the rod was. Replace the rod and add more glue.
Step 6: Other Side
Apply hot glue to the same spot on the other half of the gun.
Step 7: Reclose
Put the halves back together and replace screws.
Step 8: The Rocket
Now take a rocket and apply glue to the end cap to make a buffer. This will create more tension in the spring and add more launching power. Make sure to leave a little space for the catch tooth to hold the rocket.
Step 9: Repeat
Do the same for the other rocket.
Step 10: You're Done!
Done!!! The rocket should be more stable and a little more powerful now. Enjoy! Thanks for viewing!!!
