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.

Any Tutorials?

Post by Zett-Vampyre » Wed Aug 05, 2009 5:11 pm

Hi, I'm new here, and I'm trying to get into this hobby. I have a cork launcher that only sends my rocket up 20 feet. So I wondering if any one has tutorials for relatively cheap launchers that can pressure the rocket to around 70-100 psi.

Thanks
