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.

The youtube tag is weird and really picky for some reason. Someone should make an explanation for how to use it because it doesn't seem to work if you use the video URL copied right from Youtube.

The correct format to post the youtube links to embed the video is as follows:

surround the URL for the video you wish to post with the youtube tags (which you did correctly) but the URL needs to be in the following format:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fXPhm1bt-0

playlists will not work and dont forget to change https to http.

I hope that helps.

Thanks. Now I have to figure out how to get the proper link. All I did was grab the one offered by the 'share' button. Works elsewhere so I had no clue. And thanks for fixing the format in my earlier post!
