    those quick connect garden hose fittings work great to make water rockets out of 2 liter soda bottles. I cut a piece of pvc pipe about 9 inches long or so (pipe size I think its 1/2 pipe size) and using construction adhesive glue, glue it into the opening of a 2 liter bottle (smear some adhesive inside the bottle mouth about an inch in max and a bit on the outside end of the pipe) you want it to go in the bottle so that its just past the spot where the neck meets the flared bottle, I usually push it past then pull it out to the spot it needs to end up. put some tape around the neck and pipe so it wont move and stand it up in the corner (bottle up, pipe down)so the glue settles around the pipe. takes a few days to dry enough. to the other end of the pipe glue a slip fit to threaded pipe connector, you want a male thread to screw a garden hose quick connect nipple to 3/4 pipe thread is close enough to the garden hose thread to hold ok. fins are made from panels cut from squarish plastic jugs like detergent bottles. I cut them so the fin is 2 inches tall by 3 inches long and I use the corner of the bottle so I can leave a 3/4 inch piece at a right angle to the 2 inches tall part. put 2 holes through the plastic fin in the crotch of the right angle, each hole near the top and bottom of the fin. take two zip ties and thread the 4 fins onto the ties and start zipping them into a loop. put the pipe through the loop and start to take out the slack while spacing the fins around the bottle. the 3/4 bits should be on 4 sides of the pipe and just overlapping the next fin. once its all tight the fins should be somewhat offset to the pipe so they tend to paddlewheel when the bottle comes down from a flight. the zips should be tight but you don't need to go nuts as the pipe fitting will keep them from sliding down any further. the launch base can be anything you want, you just need the female socket for the garden hose quick connect and some sort of fitting to fill the bottle with air. I usually just use pvc T fitting and adapt a Schrader valve fitting into it. the female fitting usually has a check valve built in, I punch that out to add a rod that fits freely into the hole in the male fitting and glue it into the T so its sticking up and acts like a launch guide and piston to the bottle, it has to be short enough the bottle will lock into the female part. best to make the launcher light enough to place it into the bottle then turn it upright to launch. the bottle you fill about halfway with water and then screw the hose male fitting onto the pipe. a little grease on the threads and rubber washer makes it unscrew later much easier, same for the rubber o ring on the pippin. lock the hose fitting together, bottle to base and set it down and pump it up with a bicycle pump. works best below 50 psi as too much pressure and the air pushes past the water and you can hear the difference when you launch. pump it up and pull down on the locking collar and off it goes! obviously don't be over the rocket when launching as it packs a punch. at apogee the bottle usually lays over and comes down sideways, slowly spinning. 1.5 liter bottles go higher but usually don't spin down and tend to bash themselves apart faster.

    Aren't there some valves that are stable in both positions in order to use almost no battery life ? I mean, a valve that would have a shape allowing it to stay in its current position using either water pressure when closed, or a spring when open, and that would only require electricity to counter the forces keeping it in its current position.

    The reason that you need to connect from your battery to the com pin, is because normally these boards work with 5v, but the thing that you control (a door) need more voltage (or current, that's why there is a real). So, it is perfectly normal to connect an extra wire to the com.

    You confused the NC and NO connections on a relay. A closed circuit successfully passes current, while an open circuit does not. You would want to wire the solenoid to the NO line so that when the signal is passed and it goes into the "abnormal" state, the circuit closes and the solenoid opens.

    @colinfurze you should've taken the COM from the output and run it to the solenoid. Then you would've not needed the red wire. This is because COM often stands for negative/ground so I wouldn't teach kids to run positive wires into those terminals.... Cheese man......

    I would love to help you out, but i'm never going to give any of my money directly to youtube. Even if that means that i will never be able to watch any of your new videos.
    TVclip has just been really trashy towards other channels that i watch because the youtube ceo is a sjw feminist. Those channels don't get demonetized because of political views. But because the videos aren't made for 5 year olds, or ugly sjw feminists.
    i know that me doing my thing, won't change anything to your 5.4 mill subs or view count and money, but i'm just giving my opinion.
    I unsubscribed. Good luck with everything :) Loved your vids.

    Soooo, I remember making things like this when I was like 10. As an adult, twisting wires, using batteries in outside projects, and putting something that WILL leak water eventually, in the same compartment with electronics, would not fly. I had no one to guide me. You should teach kids the right way from the start.

    You mixed up normally closed and normally open...
    Closed means a closed circuit - so current can flow.
    Also, those abbreviations... NO. I mean, that's literally a word :D
    And NC... I thought that was "No connect" at first, lol.
