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 work! I remember you asked about this a while ago. It looks like the idea worked. Is this a new launch site? I miss the cows. :lol:

Do other people in the park give you a hard time about flying rockets? Someone years ago crashed an estes rocket on a picnic in our close by local park (nobody was hurt) but now all the locals are freaked out by rockets and r/c planes and make a fuss when people fly them. It sucks because we think we practice really safe flying.
