Fun & Games Photography & Video

Cobbler from Portland, OR, built a water rocket and added video, capturing how awesomely his rocket flew, as well as renewing the adoration of his daughter!

I built the Water Rocket project from vol. 5, made a few small modifications, and shot a video including aerial footage from the on-board camera. Of course, I opted for the increased speed and pressure of an air compressor running at 150 PSI instead of the hand-operated bike pump.
