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.

Great video! I got jealous of your launch site so I spent the summer on the Pacific coast. A couple of test launches let me know the wind was just too strong where I was at. How did you take a picture at apogee? That looks great by the way.

Thx Bugwubber, you did great suggestions for this launcher.
Dont be so jealous :) because this year we had a lousy summer here.
The photo is just a frame from the video of the d001 cam (md80 clone), this cam is too bad so is the video, only a few frames are ok.

The weather here was no that great all summer for launches either. We had a really short summer as well. The cool spring weather stayed around much later than usual, and then it was cool most of the summer, so the trees began to turn autumn colors back in August, so it started to look and feel like fall here when there's still summer time left on the calendar. Hopefully, this means we will have a great summer next year!
