I have finally got round to testing my latest rocket motor the mist jet!!! i strapped the rocket to the launcher and guide rail pressurized the bottles to 100 psi with 1600 mls water there was a good amount of thrust at the start of the launch but seemed to loose power after a second or so maybe due to a low launch pressure will have to see when launch day arrives
