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.

Tomy Timer Stager

Post by PTrockets » Sat Mar 09, 2013 3:38 pm

Hello everyone,
Here's my new and unique tomy timer water rocket stage release mechanism.
Basically, the tomy timer holds an elastic that holds the stager brake. When the tomy timer releases the elastic, the brake (that is pulled by other rubber band) releases the Gardena launcher and, consecutively, the 2nd stage.
I hope you enjoyed!

No, because the booster stage is not ready yet.
I'm waiting for the summer to launch my water rockets :yes:
