We must credit the teamwork and the skill of the entire U.S. Water Rockets Team for getting these launches done so rapidly. The procedures for prepping each launch have been optimized and refined by each team member over the years as we have continued to compete in the WRA2 World Record Competitions which stipulate that a record consists of an average of two flights within a 2 hour time period. The practice and skills the whole team has gained in this competition has paid off today with a total of three test launches in under 1 hour and 53 minutes! Great work, guys!
Now that we've bored you again with our launch discussion we will get back to the launcher tutorial we have been bringing you. This week we are going to start to show you how you can add some great finishing touches to your launcher to really make it stand out in the crowd of water rocket launchers. You have worked hard on your launcher up to this point and now it is time to really make the hard work pay off.
The one issue with these particular feet is that they came packed with screws that were far too long for the legs of our launcher and had we used the included screws then they would have protruded right through the legs. Instead we bought a small bag of self-tapping screws that were the proper length for our legs.
