Q. "I'm all thumbs. I've never built anything in my whole life. Do you think I could still assemble your rocket and get it to fly?"
A. Yes, you can. Even without ever looking at the assembly instructions, it will be obvious to you how the whole rocket goes together. If you have any trouble assembling or flying the rocket, simply contact our tech support staff by email or telephone and we'll be happy to help you."
Q. "If I buy one of your rockets, I'll see exactly how to build my own rockets just like yours, or better. Is it okay if I build my own using ideas I got from AntiGravity rockets?"
A. Yes! One of the design goals of each of our rockets was that it should teach people how to successfully build their own, so they could go farther and do better than we have.
Q. "Before I buy water rockets for my group, I need to show some information to others that I work with to get their input. Are there any brochures or specification sheets that you could send me?
A. The 66-page Rocket Book on our products page contains all of our water rocket brochures, instructions and more. Click on the Rocket Book link and download the book. Then you can view or print out the pages you need.
Q. "I'm planning on giving one of your rockets as a Christmas gift. If the weather is really cold, will the rocket still work? Or will the water freeze?"
A. If the temperature is below freezing, simply add some salt to your water supply before heading out to the field to launch your rocket. The salt will keep the water from freezing.
Q. "Do I need to buy the Rocket Pump to fly AntiGravity rockets, or can I use the bicycle air pump I already have?
A. Almost any bicycle air pump will work well with AntiGravity water rockets. The Rocket Pump is just highly optimized for the job of launching water rockets. It lasts longer and sends the rockets higher.
