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.

Idea for a WR-hover

Post by RaZias » Fri Nov 13, 2009 4:29 pm

The following site is an example of a simple hovercraft toy, I think that is possible to make a structure like that using computers fan below and a rocket in the top.

The rocket in the top would obviously avoid the need of a rear fan.

i dont see how that would be usefull as there is only a limited amount of water available while this toy sucks air from the atmosphere so it can run for much longer

Even so, the limited amount of water is really heavy, and makes it very hard to lift.
