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.

Plans and parts list for heavy-duty water rocket launcher

Post by Little-Acorn » Thu May 29, 2014 2:27 pm

.... can be found in the "Compressors and Launchers" section. A new design, that hopefully gets around some of the problems other launchers might have. Most parts are from Home Depot, plus a few from the local hobby shop and NAPA Auto Parts.

See the post about "Heavy-duty wood-frame Rocket Launcher". The parts list, and instructions for building it, are attached there. There's a poll in the post, please let me know what you think, and post your comments (good or bad).

Onward and upward! :)
