Water Rocket Recovery Guide

Postby air.command » Fri Jan 02, 2009 7:41 pm

With the busy time of Christmas over we are now back to more full time rocket development. One of the things we have been working on over the past few months has been a recovery guide for water rockets.

The recovery guide is intended for rocketeers wanting to add a recovery system to their water rocket. The guide covers the multitude of approaches rocketeers have taken over the years, discusses some common misconceptions and provides links to various websites covering all aspects of recovery.

The current iteration of the guide is here:

http://www.AirCommandRockets.com/recovery_guide.htm

This guide will continue to evolve as more systems are documented and as more links are explored. If you have a recovery system you'd like to share that is not on the list please let us know either through the guide's form, email, or comments on this forum, and we'll classify it and add the references to the relevant sections of the guide.

A lot of research has gone into this - that's a great resource, George

Thanks Kryten, it was a bit more work than I had initially expected but hopefully the maintenance and adding new ones will be simpler now. We get a lot of questions about recovery systems, so hopefully it will make it easier to just point people at the relevant sections.
