Soda Bottle Rocket Launchers

Soda Bottle Rocket Launcher –

See link for easy to use/inexpensive model here:  Hot Link

This is a fantastic Pack, Den or Campout activity – this design is simple and easy to use with very little adjustment required.

A few tips – Don’t use 2 liter bottles – they take a long, tiring time to fill up with air with a hand pump.  Also – use only Coke bottles vice mix of Pepsi/Coke – they are slightly different and require adjustment to the launch mechanism.

The launcher is “light” so I have mine attached to a piece of plywood so that it doesn’t tip over and hurt someone — also, highly recommend you tilt the launcer so that the rockets fly “down range” where the boys are not standing – into a safe zone – otherwise they will go straight up and come straight down – and they do come down fast as they have no recovery system.
