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.

Deployment System

Members post instructions to construct water rockets, launchers, deployment systems, staging mechanisms, splicing bottles, and payloads.

To trip the timer i use a sturgon hook with the barb cut off. The hook is attached to a a tarp clip. Hang the hook over the swivel loosly an thats it. When you lauch the rocket the hook pulls the swivel away from the timer an it starts winding down. to deploy the deployment system.

if you have any questions please ask

Thank you for sharing this. I am looking for good deploy designs that I can build and test while it is cold out!
