  Water Rocket Launcher Index
The use of the launcher is extremely strightforward.
When the rocket is released, the launch tube provides as much acceleration as possible with as little loss of liquid as possible until the nozzle reaches the end of the launch tube.
Should you suspect that the rocket is about to fail or, for some reason it does not launch, or maybe an animal (such as dog or a boy scout) strays into the launch area, you may wish to dump the air as quickly as possible.

 Software for Fun and Education
For the typical free flight rocket, the degree of stability inherent in its design is largely dependent on the relative position of the rocket's Center of Mass (CM) to its Center of Pressure (CP).
This usually requires that more of the rocket's mass is concentrated at the front end of the rocket, while the fins are positioned as far aft as possible to maximize their effectiveness as a stabilizing device.
A few of the primary factors that influence the degree of stability needed are, the severity of the wind gusts and turbulence in the air, the speed your rocket flies, and the shape and distribution of mass in the rocket nose, body, and fins.

I have designed fins that come in several sections, so when the rocket launches, the fin's size is adequate to insure near-perfect stability from it's slowest speed, up to about 100 mph.

Once the second sections are shed, the rocket is now trimmed for the rest of it's ascent.

 Ian's Cable-Tie Rocket Launcher
To launch a water rocket, you of course need some sort of apparatus to apply pressure to the bottle and point it in a roughly vertical direction.
However when the 'trigger ring' is pushed upwards, it prevents the heads of the cable ties from moving outwards, retaining the rocket on the launcher.
A typical launch sequence is to fill the bottle with around 30% water, tip the milk crate and launcher over so the launch tube is pointing slightly downwards, then slide the bottle over the launch tube and the 'O' ring.
