Participants are supposed to get their own launching pads which cannot be shared with other teams.
The rocket body should be made only with plastic bottles of aerated soft drinks of maximum capacity 2.5L and should be free of any fabrication failures or dents caused by heat exposure. More than one bottle can be used but the total volume must be less than 2.5L.
Working fluid is water and only it should be used in propulsion of rocket , no other things or system should be used. Participants will use the water provided by the organizers.
Foot pump will be provided by organizers , this foot pump is compatible with the standard bike valve. Please check the sizes of nozzle which you are using in case of using your own launcher.
