Building a high pressure water rocket featuring a Raspberry Pi camera


New member
Hi all!

This is my first post so I have decided to share with you the project that I'm currently working on. The Hyperion II will be a 4-liter water rocket reinforced with fiberglass for high pressure (over 10 bar) flights. It will feature one of my Rockit flight computers for measuring altitude and acceleration. The flight computer will also deploy a parachute and trigger a Raspberry Pi zero connected to a camera featuring a wide angle (160 degrees) lens for filming video at 1080p and 30 fps.

The launcher is ready, and I have the raw materials to start building the rocket. Currently I'm testing the electronics to power the Raspberry Pi zero and camera. Hopefully the flight will go better than last time when one of my rocket crashed on a roof. I had to climb the roof and I do not recommend that! Here is the video.
