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.

There's no reason you couldn't stick a few soft drink bottles inside! :-)

I think in US it´s because you have acess to really big rocketengine ( >J) and thats reallly big rockets and i think our waterrockets looks really a bit like toys. But in Germany we fly often only rocket with F -G Motors and our waterrockets are as big as the smokers and so we all respect each other( but we makes jokes abour each other;)).

Are the really big engines forbidden in Europe?

In Europe no, but in germany we need to certificate every engine and at the moment there are only thr cesaroni pro 38 certificated so a J e engine is possible.
But over that size i didn´t rememmber of an bigger motor which was launched in germany.

I can see why the Big Pyro guys in the US really don't like the wrockets. Cause ours cost like a ton less than what the pyros cost.

Thats cool that you guys have respect for eachother. I haven't really had contact with an others that launch anything cause it isn't to big around here.

I bet that these folks are not too impressed with rockets that don't even go 1000 feet high. Even small pyro rockets will go that high and those are the toy ones. It's still a lot safer and more fun to build the whole thing including the engine yourself!
