Foam generation tests and Baffle tests

We have updated our website with the latest static fire tests showing in detail how the water behaves inside a water rocket when a baffle is fitted to the lowest Robinson coupling.

The update also shows the Jet Foaming technique we developed to generate foam inside the rocket to provide a different thrust profile to the normal water/air mix.

We intend to develop CD nozzles to help improve the rocket efficiency.

The update is here:

We have now test flown the rocket with very good results. The video and update will be posted on the website soon.
