We had some limited success with this, bu it really wants more ooomph than a 1 liter bottle can deliver. I'd like to see them stay with the 1 liter bottle just because it is so frustrating.
How about a bonus for down range distance (long or short), or a two rocket formula that rewards long distance on one shot while the second launch should land near the pad?
If we could get past the safety issue of modifying a pressure vessel, then it would be really cool to have two stage (2x1-liter) rockets. I don't think that we can cluster on a standard launcher, but a vertical 2-stage is possible if we were permitted a hole in the top of the first stage pressure vessel. Not likely to happen.
