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.

Good Video.
But need proof.


I come from China, do not understand English, your information I use the translation software to view. I like water rockets, technology is the same, I hope we can become friends.

How did you measure the altitude?

Also if you're going to be pumping up the rocket so close to it, you and your friends might want to consider wearing some eye protection in case of a rupture.
