THE OFFICIAL PEGASUS WATER ROCKETS UPDATE THREAD!

Postby Heath Loxton » Sat Aug 30, 2014 11:01 pm

Hi from Heath Loxton,
for the last year or so I have been working "in the dark" on establishing a water rocket programme in the western suburbs of Adelaide. I have since established a large fleet of mini, 1, 2, 3 and 4 bottle single stage water rockets that can safely fly up to 91m in altitude and return safely to the Earth under parachute. all while carrying an insect capsule, altimeter and HD camera without the use of any motors or chemicals!
I based my ideas on the Air Command water rocket programme just on a smaller scale due to the lack of large ovals, resources and time.

please enjoy my program updates on this thread from Pegasus water rockets - were up and on our way in 2014. :D

Hi Heath,

Welcome to the forum. :D Sounds like you have a good program running there in Adelaide. Tell us more about your insect capsule. Do they come along for the ride, or do you film them how they behave in flight?
