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

Since our founding in 2003, we've become 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.


Hello Everyone. It is that time of year again. Time to approve changes to the competition rules for the new year.

Nice tilt mechanism! It looks like the 90 deg launch position has the rocket over the cross leg. How are you maintaining stability?

That's a new design nobody has ever published before. It looks like the adjustment angle is quick and easy to set. One improvement you could make is to put some marks along the adjustment slot to show where various angles are located, so you don't have to measure in the field. You can just set it to the indicator mark. Nice work!

I am more working on. an adjustment screw for locking any angle cross leg can adjust 25 deg to 90 deg of angle.
so very soon add any measuring gauge.

That looks great! Just what you need for an adjustable launcher.
