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.

What is the Altitude Challenge?

Post by Tommy » Mon Jul 23, 2012 11:26 am

I was wondering if this is for the world record part, or something else?

Hi Tom,

For any further questions, please post them to the WRA2 competition Q & A forum. This forum is for contest submissions only.


Basically the altitude challenge is an entry level competition for "bragging rights". There is a pressure limit of 200PSI and "peak altimeters" (less costly then logging altimeters). Winners will earn a spot on the standings page alongside the world records. The purpose is to teach teams to build rules compliant rockets and follow the general WRA2 launching and safety regulations. Since the rockets would already be compliant, teams could "scale them up" in the future to compete in the world record competitions. :WRA2:

There are currently no "standing winners" for this competition so the first team with a submission will go to the top of the chart.

Good Luck!
