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.

Water Rocket Dragster rules questions

Post by Afrom1 » Fri Oct 04, 2019 2:54 pm

hey so I am looking to build a Water Rocket Dragster to try and break the speed record. and I got a few questions about the rules what is meant by RC control mechanisms. do this mean that I can take the front suspension from an rc car an mod it to be part of the Dragstesr front suspension and steering ore that it is allowed to get individual part from fx hobby king ore similar to make the suspension and steering. and is it possible to only submit for speed record and not the distans record? and is there any sise ore weight limitation is currently looking at a 2m long and 110mm diameter, pressure chamber with roughly 19l volume.

Any RC mechanism would be any of component from a commercially produced RC car (electronics, steering gear/mechanisms, etc) would not be allowed. However individual components such as a servo motor would be allowed.

You may participate in either class or both if you choose. The records are separate.

Good Luck! PH:
