  • Water Pistol Test

    Just went out in the wind to find a dark spot to test the liquid in flight. It looks better and greener in real life, i should use the UV glasses as a filter on the camera, but I really needed an assistant.

    My test setup. Ultra bright UV torch, UV markers, syringes, water pistols , UV safety glasses.


  • 'Fuel' Test

    haydn jones3 days ago 0 comments

    The first part of the project is the fuel testing. This is the uv reactive inert liquid propellant.

    Stage 1. Remove some ink from a Non-Toxig highlighter pen.

    Next test under a UV spotlight....

    and finally, dilute with water...

    Next stage is to fire streams outdoors, when there isn't a storm.

i don't think that there is any substitute for actual fireworks, but I like the idea.

See how it works when I launch one, the ink diluted really well, and I'm looking forward to trying a Catherine wheel. Also in many places you cant launch your own real ones anyway. Also thanks for the buck :)
