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.

Cool videos.

Nice job on that in-flight video. The quality of those CVS recorders is the most impressive small video camera I have seen yet. I think someone on here a while back was talking about them and said you could hotwire them so you don't have to return them to get the videos downloaded to DVD. Is yours hotwired like that?

This is the best quality onboard camera I have seen until now. It is nearly as good as my sony handycam so I just placed a bid on one which has been unlocked. Thank you for demonstrating the quality of this camera.

Is it hard to "hotwire" one of these. I have seen these for sale on EBay before. The ones that arent "hotwired" are usually cheaper.

We had a discussion going about this camera in another topic.

http://www.wra2.org/forum/viewtopic.php ... highlight=

The procedure for cracking the CVS camcorder is different depending on what model you get. Some are really easy to crack and others are impossible to crack. We had one but we wuined it in the process of trying to crack it. I suggest you get one that's already unlocked.
