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.

Video resolution is only 320*240 @ 10fps with sound, but it will do me just fine. It weighs 60 grams with the batteries, but can be trimmed down. Will fit inside of a FTC tube and record up to 360 seconds of video. Can't wait to try it out!
Here is a update on my micro digital camcorder setup. I took the outer shell off and modifed the camera to use a rechargeable lypo battery. The battery is used for the camera and the altimeter. Before, the stock camera with two AA batteries weighed 60 grams and now the camera, battery, altimeter, and foam weighs only 29 grams! I have ground tested the camera and altimeter and both word just fine, can't wait to put this in a rocket and do some testing.

I looked for this camera while at WalMart today. Does anyone know if they are still being sold?

Ben
I saw them at Super Wal-Mart back in February. I know Super Wal-Mart and regular Wal-mart often carry different products. Maybe you can check another store?

I think this is the same one:
