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.

The video looks like it's in the air for at least six seconds before the video ends. If it went for 7 seconds before hitting the ground, it probably went up about at least 60 meters, which is about 200 feet. I'm skeptical that it went as high as 264 feet (80 meters). There's no good way to tell without knowing the duration of the flight.
