Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

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.

LAUNCHER TRIGGER

Post by boondocksjp » Fri Mar 28, 2008 6:18 pm

Hello fellow ROCKET HEADS. I want to build a rocket launcher other than a cable release, or quick connect. I see pic's of a 3 finger gear puller set up. Anybody out there have some know how about this type of set up?

I've heard of finger like launchers but I have never seen one up close. Did you make that one? It's sweet!

Can you do us a favor and post a link to the page where you found that one? I could not find it by searching google. The design is very nice and I would like to see more.
