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.

What a cool hobby we've found here! We are newbies to rocketry and flight in general, but avid tinkerers and makers of things. A trip to Kennedy Space Center this spring and watching a SpaceX launch sparked an renewed interest in space flight which has turned into a bit of an obsession this summer with water rockets. We've had several successful launches and recoveries so far and are looking forward to many more. Thanks to all who post and share, it has been quite a learning experience so far.
