The largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Backyard Blaster Launcher

Post by Billkuhl53 » Wed Jun 23, 2010 5:53 pm

Has anyone tried to used the Pitsco Backyard Blaster launcher? I purchased the kit and the Aquaport launcher at the same time. Aquaport works great but I just tried using the Backyard Blaster and can not get it to work at all, it starts leaking at about 10 psi. The parts did not fit together too well either. Really sad because it is available at a reasonable price. It just seems the plastic jaws do not grip the bottle tight enough and it starts to leak.
