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.

Hi Everyone,

Thought i'd say hello and introduce myself.

I've recently started building water rockets with my son and daughter. We've had great fun so far, although we've only had a few flights. We're now looking to move on to bigger and better things and try a spliced bottle rocket. We're based in the UK, so any advice from UK residents on glue to use etc would be appreciated!

I hope to learn a lot from the knowledge here. We've already learnt a lot from aircommandrockets.com, uswaterrockets.com and raketfuedrockets.com, but there is so much more to learn and new things to be tried!

Thanks all in advance for sharing your knowledge!

Matthew
