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.


Hello Everyone. It is that time of year again. Time to approve changes to the competition rules for the new year.

Coast

Drag-free coast 274.0 metres to apogee at 274.5 metres after 7.5 seconds
Actual apogee at 68.03 metres (223.2 feet) after 3.08 seconds

So I'll set the delay for 2 seconds because I don't think it calculates the time the parachute takes to unwind.
2 sec sounds good. I was just looking over my 2 liter/100psi altimeter chart, it hit right at 2sec to apogee.
Oh sorry that was at 90psi. At 100psi apogee was about 3.5 sec.

I have one, haven't used it yet. I can't just buy toys and kill them. I have to buy them and then wait for some part to break.

Why not, the last "walking" Easter egg I got for $2 was crushed under my foot to the point that it fell apart but the spring thiny tomy timer wasn't broken.

Because it makes my children cry when I smash their toys and rip out the guts.

Buy your own.

Besides, it makes for even better toys!

When an adult who has young children buys a toy, it is automatically for them. And they saw Toy Story. You would hurt little Turtlie? You're like that meanie Sid. :-)

How do they know it is for them if you never show it to them.

But you said you could not buy anything without parental approval.

I said that about stuff online. They don't want me to order stuff without them knowing. Besides I was talking about how would the kids know if you didn't show it to them.

Glad you were able to get the ServoChron into your rocket, Keep up the good work!
