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.

Cool video. Thanks for sharing.

That reminds me, what's the best way to get water rockets (and anything else) out of trees? Do you guys have much trouble getting your rockets hung up? How do you get them out?

I have a long hollow metal curtain rod with a kind of blunt point on the end which works for smaller trees. If it's a larger tree (and a rocket worth the trouble) I use a ladder.

Though due to where we live I don't really use recovery systems much so there's less to get stuck in trees.

Our dad has a thing like that but it has an aluminum pole that comes in secments that snap together and you can connect many of them together to make the pole as long as you need. We could use that as long as we are not near any power lines!

Hi,

Nice flight! That´s typical: Only one single tree in sight, and then the rocket decides to land in it.

Regards
Soren

chainsaw... 8P

(evil no-good rocket eating monstrosities from hell, we should chop them all down and make launch facilities out of them. well, ok, not all of them. just the rocket eating ones. and any nearby, you know they were laughing when it happened... evil no-good rocket eating............)

They don't belong to me because we borrow our launch area and we have to leave things as we found them. I'd love to be able to chop trees down, but that would get us kicked off the property.
