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.

Got to start some where.
We're with you, our best height is 295ft. Not as easy as it looks to get more height. But we're working on rocket number 7 and 8 and each one gets better, and lots learned along the way.
99% fun.. 1% the moment you realize, even after multiple bench tests, the chute is not coming out. lawn dart. :D

To go higher you gotta keep building more elaborate rockets and that takes time. If you perfect the parachute then you spend more time flying and less time building replacement parts/rockets.
