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.

How to make a nosecone for your water rocket

Post by U.S. Water Rockets1 » Fri Jun 21, 2013 4:31 pm

One of the most important components you will build for your water rocket is the nosecone. The shape of the nosecone can make the difference between an average performing water rocket and a high performance water rocket. The nosecone design has a profound effect on the amount of aerodynamic drag the rocket has. The less drag, the better the rocket will perform.
