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.

The Comet last flight of last season. Replaced the fin yesterday and will work on another electronics bay.

Did it hit a tree before hitting ground?

Yes, it did. Lots of staining on two fins. The nose cone and most of the electronics bay were shattered. Lost one battery and one altimeter. The camera survived at least. Oh, and the parachute survived as well!
