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.

Post by rockets-in-brighton » Thu Jan 08, 2009 5:13 pm

George Katz is compiling a comprehensive index of water rocket recovery systems:


Looks very good so far, contributions are invited from the community.

Water Rockets are amazing things, One second there sitting on the launch pad, the next, splattered all over your shirt.

It's a water-rocket community resource - give George the links and he'll add it to the list.

Thank you for the link RaZias. I will add it to the guide with the next batch of recovery systems.

Hi George! Long time no see! Great to see you put out such a comprehensive guide to recovery. If you ever do another of of these things you should put up a post or two beforehand and we can all send you our links and save you a bunch of work. Good to see you're still hard at work on water rockets.

Hi USWR, how are you? yes its been a while. :D We're always happy to get more help and suggestions for links for the guide. We are continuing to gather further recovery system sources in the background and will do another update over the next few weeks, but it is slow going.

Good to see you guys working on Project 3000 as well. Looks like a very interesting build!

Hi George,

We're doing well (just cold at the moment). We have some footage of one of our early rockets using backglider recovery we could put up on our site if you think you can use a demonstration video.

So many projects, and so little time...

Hello USWR,

Sorry to hear about the cold, a bit warm over here at the moment (~110F at times!) If you do have a video of backgliding recovery we'd like to add it to the recovery guide. Please let us know of the link and we'll add it.

"So many projects, and so little time" ....couldn't agree more! :D

Cheers

- George

Here is the side gliding video. It was converted from an old recording we did in 2003.
