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.

Not a water rocket but a sweet rocket!

That's pretty cool looking. Anyone think that the still photo on the end of the video is one of the most beautiful photos of a model rocket they have ever seen? If they had filmed that liftoff with a slow motion camera it could have passed for a real Saturn 5 liftoff!

Yeah, the High Powered stuff is very cool but takes THOU$$AND$ of dollars to get there and years (sometimes too). Those guys are true engineers in their own right, the tech that goes into them is staggering. Dual deployment, seperating air frames, GPS, avionicts, trackers, in flight staging upper motors etc..
They are awesome, but in my opinion it hardly is worth the cost. It just isn't that much fun (unless you are truely driven) to watch it crash into the desert half the time and recover pieces of your rocket.


Any opinion can be raised, but few grow up to become facts.
