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.

It has been 10 years since U.S. Water Rockets set the WRA2 World Record Altitude for Water Rockets.
Join us in two weeks for a very special announcement.

It's been a long time and nobody has really tried to improve upon our past efforts, so we thought it was time to take the next step. We're going to share videos of all of our designs, and test data and everything. You're going to be blown away. There's nothing like this anywhere. We hope you like it.

Did you make a rocket out of nanotubes? That would be cool.

Are you talking about carbon fiber nanotubes? or is there something else called nanotubes in the U.S?

Can you even buy nanotubes yet, that would say as a private person, and if you could i would reckon it would be extremely expensive to get the ammounts needed for a rocket of any size.

Now that I have seen the release video, I must say I will be trying this soon. I just have to find a field to launch in. Anyone know of a good field near Charlotte, NC?

Thanks, Doglover! We're really happy with the number of people interested in this project. Keep us posted how it goes, and if you have any questions you can feel free to ask. In fact, we should set up a forum here for Technical Support.

Thanks! You're going to love it. Everyone seems to really be having great luck building and flying it. Even beginners. It's great to see all the launch videos from other people using our design!

Looking forward to your feedback!
