I am impressed. RC no less! There is a water rocket group on Yahoo groups but this is the first time I've seen something like this. Post some pictures and info please.

Here is a great video by Sciencetoymaker Slater Harrison which shows how to make a launcher. Mine is similar, but uses only 4 cable ties and velcro tape as a lock.

Thomas, nice to see others making rc water bottle rockets. I had ideas with rc WBR but never got around to doing it.
I saw one German site about rc WBRs made to look like spaceship 1 and it also has an edf, maybe you can get some inspiration from that.
