    Another opportuity to prove we know what we’re doing. I have been contacted by someone seeking help with their water rocket Eggonaut for a Science Olmpiad. Bottle goes up straight but doesn’t release payload/parachute. She’s getting frustrated and hopes someone, anyone could help determine options and resolve issues before April 24th deadline. Located in Highlands Ranch, so it’s a stretch for me to get there to help or hinder. Interested in helping out? Let me know and I’ll forward more info.

    Pass the info onto me – I did some about 5 years ago, I can go back and look up what I did and maybe it might help.

    I’m thinking 12 grams of BP… no? Sorry, did a water rocket when I was a kid, and they usually just come back down. Try Alka-Seltzer sealed in something that takes a while to leak into it then fizz out?

    I spent some time playing around with those as some might remember a few years back. I got pretty good at lofting 2 liter bottles and recovering them uner chute, no electronics, no mechanics, no pyro. Feel free to give her/them my e-mail and phone Joe, if I can help I would be happy too!
