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.

What awesome pictures. How high did your rocket go? Everything is so green. Is that shadows I can see on the ground from clouds in that last photo? You have a beautiful launch site. Keep up the good work.

Ha ha ha! Those cows look like little ants from up there. Those pictures come out really good. Is that still the CVS camera that you're using?

Do you like VLC? I never tried it myself. It's freeware, correct?

dwrrule is right. VLC Media Player is a great program. It can play countless different video files and doesn't require constant codec downloads to play obscure formats. It's got many great features like the frame capture mode, and you can see by dwrrule's beautiful photos this feature is great for getting stills from water rocket flights. NICE!

Once again nice photos! I love the picture of Mt. Ramier. That's a great view!

What crops are growing in the fields below? Are they grazing fialds for cows or is something growing there? There's cornfields around that we can fly in but the corn could make the rocket hard to locate so we're scared to fly there.
