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.

Follow my Delta II construction Blog.
It is sure to be one heck of a learning experience for me.

Your blog is really impressive. The plans you have made look really ambitious! One question that came to mind while looking at your nozzle designs is I thought to ask you how you planned to hold a rocket of that size down on the launcher???

Well, the plan right now is to have a pneumatic type lock down system to hold
it down to the pad until it is ready to fly.
Needs to be thought out and designed which is what is whole project is all about. WO:

I like the advanced systems that guys like you make. Your designs remind me of batkiter with all the detailed components.

I can't wait to see how the launcher works. I am really curious how it grips the rocket without damaging the nozzles.

Keep up the good work!

It's good to see new people getting involved. New blood to bring in new innovations. That's the key to keeping the sport active and keep innovators innovating.
