Our CPR-3000 system for dual parachute deployment will allow you to launch high altitude rockets in a relatively small field.

 

These kits all require the following items to be "flight-ready" with the included CPR3000 system:

  • The PML Co-Pilot altimeter or Transolve P6. The Co-Pilot is available on our Electronics Page. The mounting hardware for these 2 altimeters are included in all CPR based kits.
  • Or the Adept ALTS25, Transolve P4 or Transolve P5 altimeter. However, you`ll also need to order the compatible mounts for those altimeters, CPR2K-FAM and CPR2K-AAM, available on the CPR3000 Page.
  • Or you can use your existing PerfectFlite StratoLogger or Stratologger CF by purchasng the optional eSled-PF Altimeter Mounting System. Click here for details.
  • 4F (FFFFg) black powder for the ejection charges, which is sold at gun shops that specialize in antique firearms.
  • Compatable e-matchs.

(NOTE: A CPR-based rocket must always be flown with the electronics installed. A CPR-based rocket cannot be flown with motor-based ejection).

For more details on CPR3000, go to the CPR/ERM page.

High Performance Two Stage Kit!

This fascinating multistage rocket combines two cutting edge technologies, the InterStage 3000 staging system and the CPR3000 Close Proximity Recovery system.

38mm altitude records will be broken all over the country with this kit. (Thank heavens for CPR!) Both stages have a 38mm motor mount long enough to handle the RMS-38/720 case (J-350)!

The Thunder -N- Lightning is 2.560" ID and stands 91" tall in two stage configuration, and weighs in at approximately 96 oz. The Thunder -N- Lightning sustainer stage can be flown alone and is 62" tall and weighs about 60 ounces.

We recommend the PML Accu-Fire Timer for sustainer stage ignition when the Thunder -N- Lightning is flown in two-stage mode. (Can also use the Transolve ST-2B Staging Timer).

You want to talk about extreme? This high performance, 54mm rocket kit is capable of extremely high altitude flights. The fully `glassed version has flown to 13,685 on an Aerotech K-185. The test vehicle was found relatively close to the launch pad even though it was launched in 20MPH winds, thanks to the Close Proximity Recovery system.

This kit comes with a 30" long booster to accommodate very long 54mm composite and even hybrid motors!
The Nimbus is not available with QT tubing.

The Nimbus is 2.1" ID and stands 73" tall. The fully `glassed model weighs approximately 48oz.

For added structural integrity when using high impulse motors or for trans-sonic and supersonic flight, we highly recommend using the optional "Glass Wrap" fiberglass laminating kit. The "GlassWrap" kit comes complete with precut fiberglass cloth, professional epoxy laminating resin, hardener and detailed instructions.

This is the 2.1 inch version of our popular Black Brant X as shown on our Scale Kits page, but this one is fully-equipped with our CPR3000 Dual-Deployment Recovery System! The Mini BBX is very close to true scale and comes with detailed painting instructions. The Mini BBX is perfect for Level 1 Cert flights as it flies using high-impulse G through I motors in its 29mm MMT. The tail cone at the base of the rocket is designed to fit the optional Terrier Booster Stage for a truly authentic Black Brant X two-stage flight. The CPR3000 Mini BBX kit includes a Quantum Tube airframe, a specially designed tail cone, and G-10 fins, as well as the CPR3000 system as described on the CPR/ERM page. Add an altimeter as discussed on the top of this page and you`re ready to fly! The Mini-BBX CANNOT use a motor retainer of any kind if it will someday be used with the Terrier booster. Sorry.

Turn your Mini-BBX into a real, high-flying two stage rocket. This is a very close scale replica of the bottom stage of the Black Brant X sounding rocket. Slip it under the PML Mini-BBX and you will have the complete, scale rocket! You can easily double the altitude and have the thrill of two stage flying without all the usual guesswork of a "standard" or scratch-built two-stage rocket. (We recommend the CPR version of the MiniBBX as the best for the Terrier. This is due to the tremendous altitudes the Terrier/MiniBBX combo will reach, and also because a CPR-based MiniBBX will still deploy the `chutes even if the sustainer stage doesn`t ignite, saving the rocket). The Terrier Booster is easy to assemble and very easy to prep. We spent months developing the best and most reliable inter-stage coupler on the market just for this kit. The Terrier Booster requires the Transolve ST-2b Timer or the up-coming PML AccuFire Timer (release date August 2001) for upper stage ignition. Order today, the Terrier Boosters are in stock and ready to ship NOW.
  • 2.5" Quantum Tubing airframe
  • 10" long 38mm MMT (I284 maximum motor)
  • Scale urethane transition to Mini BBX sustainer stage.
  • Booster equipped with piston ejection system and 30" PML parachute; uses motor ejection for booster recovery.
  • Detailed, easy-to-follow instructions loaded with helpful graphics.
  • Scale decal
