Prototype Mist jet rocket

This week i have been working on a new rocket design, the new design works in a totally different way to standard rockets, the water and air are in seperate compartments as the rocket is released water travels down a tube which has holes near the neck of the bottle where air hits the water creating a fine mist as propulsion benefits of this design is a more sustained equal propulsion of water and air, another advantage is the rocket needs no ballast weight as the water is contained at the top of rocket to maintain a stable flight it reduces the rockets overall weight, total vol 8 litres, fill volume: 1600mls water/foam, nozzle 10mm, launch pressure 100-120 psi.
