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.

That's pretty cool looking. I like the lens flare that you captured. It looks like the CVS camera (that's what you used, right?) has a pretty decent sensor in it because my cheapie camera oversaturates when looking at a bright light. Any place where the light is too bright it shows up as black on my images. The sun looks like a black circle in the sky because of this cheap sensor.

Why would anyone get tired? You've done a great job of posting a variety of different types of images. Keep it up I say!

Keep posting the photos and videos Dan.
I really like seeing your work. How did you mount your camera on your rocket. Do you cut a hole in a bottle for the lens to see out of or just put the camera in a clear bottle?

The blue circle is the lens flare I was talking about. It's cool. They put those in movies and stuff to make them look cool!
