A burn out together would be great fun. Where could I launch it?

Yup understand that, but it's not steam as the water was not hot enough, in fact it was cold.

We will see how it goes.

this is my water system on the 25 the block drains through the pee hole so there will be a certain amount of pressure through a small hole

1st Day Out

So today, I launched the Bandit for the 1st time.

And I can confirm it does at least float, which is a start.
