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's really exciting to be able to speak to so many enthusiasts at one time all in one place. We want to give a special "tip of the hat" to David and Lisa for their tireless efforts to make this such an appealing and entertaining place!

I need to make an effort to come more often because now when I visit it takes an hour or more to read all the messages! This is not me complaining. I enjoy to read of all the exploits of water rockets worldwide. Thanks to everyone for so much good information and recounting your stories for me.

A silly situation would be when many water-rocketeers make a loby to allow sending water-rockets above 1.5 km without special license.

Anyway, just when nano-carbo-fiber will be avaible to public I belive that a rocket could handle extreme pressure.
A cubic meter of that stuff can contain enough gas as a gas truck container.

I have a feeling that the nano carbon fiber will cost more than the gas truck container!
