Bottle Rockets (B)

Post by Over9000 » April 30th, 2009, 10:10 am

An "Exploratory" Event at Nationals '09....

Does anybody have any plans for this one? I'm just kind of doing the classic design with a Parachute.

I'm in Division B by the way, so the rules are a lot more lax. And less specific. XD

If you want ideas you'll probably find most of the info you need on the Egg-O-Naut thread and the Bottle Rockets Wiki

Oh Sorry. Maybe that's what they call it, my friend up at the High School said he was doing Bottle Rockets. XD

Dunno what's going on, but it is an event for Div B. They are using the 2006 rules.

Looks like anything that doesn't exceed 3 meters when combined with the rest of the rocket is fine for a recovery system.

would you be allowed to add stuff to your rocket if it didn't make the weight requirements? just like, put something inside the fuselage or something?
