Bulding a Bottle Air Rocket

Ok, so I've come with this idea with my cousin to make a bottle rocket, but I'm really being beaten up by this idea. I've tried to search for a lot of tutorials, but none of them really made my mind.

I have everything in mind but the "ignitor" (which releases the pressure). Most tutorials tells to use an electric activator, but I probably won't find the necessary to make that in here, though I also don't want to make a friction activator (releases when pressure is too high). Is there any way I could make a pneumatic or something like that "ignitor"?

I am doing something like this project (with a few changes in the pressure holder, which don't really matter): http://faculty.kfupm.edu.sa/AE/aymanma/images/How%20to%20make%20a%20soda-bottle%20rocket%20launcher.pdf [Broken]

Thanks in advance.

I've seen water rockets that use quick connect garden hose connectors. Whatever you use try to find something that disconnects as quickly as possible with minimal effort.
