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.

Thanks DogLover! :)
We are focused on making simple tutorials so that everybody has the ability to build it.
If you visit our YouTube-Channel you will find a bunch of other tutorials which explain other parts of a water rocket.
Cheers

Great Side deploy system. Now for an axial one. Yes, I've been using a variation of USWR'S Axial Deploy.
