What is CPR3000?

For more details on CPR3000 and to find the individual components in the system, go to the
CPR Systems page.

 

Do you need an altimeter for your CPR3000 rocket?

Take a look at the Co-Pilot, designed and build specifically for the CPR3000 System!

 

Scroll down for more info.

Enjoy your flight!

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

 

 

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

  • The PML Co-Pilot altimeter. The Co-Pilot is available on our Electronics Page. The mounting hardware for this altimeter is included in all CPR based kits.
  • 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).

Parachute: 54" main & 18" drogue | Payload: None
Fin Array: 4 main and 4 canard | Fin Thickness: 0.06"

The AMRAAM 4 CPR is a beautiful, scale kit for Level 1 and 2 flights. This rocket stands 77.7" tall, is 3.9" diameter, and has a 4 main and 4 canard fin design. This rocket comes standard with a 54/38/29mm Kwik-Switch motor mount and can fly on H thru J motors. At ~112 oz., the 54" main & 18" drogue parachute is sized right for the stock kit to make a safe landing under most field conditions. This kit comes standard with our exclusive Linear Rail Lugs for use with 80/20 brand launch rails. The stock airframe is ideal for flights up to approx. 0.85 Mach.

 
Below you will find a number of upgrade options. Upgrading the parachute size may be necessary if you intend to build heavy or have a hard landing surface (i.e. gravel, pavement, desert playa, etc.). Some motors will accelerate this rocket to transonic or even supersonic velocities. Under these conditions, this kit may require the fin upgrade, foam encapsulation of the fin root, as well as other advanced construction skills.

Co-Pilot v3.0 Altimeter


The Co-Pilot was designed to integrate perfectly with the CPR3000 based rockets above!

PML Co-Pilot Version 3 Altimeter:

The Public Missiles Ltd. Co-Pilot v3 altimeter was developed exclusively for Public Missiles Ltd. by Missile Works Corp., and was designed specifically for PML’s CPR3000 Recovery System (though it can also be used in other applications as well, such as scratch-built deployment systems).

    PHYSICAL AND OPERATIONAL FEATURES

  • Same footprint as the original Co-Pilot and Co-Pilot v2.0.
  • Works just like the original Co-Pilot and Co-Pilot v2.0 in default mode right out of the package, but has MANY new advanced features such as Drogue Delay, Main Delay, multiple Main AGL settings, a programmable “Aux” terminal (and more!) that are user-configurable (see link to instructions below for details)
  • Works perfectly with any PML CPR-3000, CPR-MAX kit, or a custom design of your own
  • 15 flight memory at up to 28 minutes recording per flight
  • USB connection port (requires user-provided USB-A to Mini- B cable). Programing and flight data inspection via PC or laptop becomes a snap with the free mDACS software available below*
  • Optional LCD display allows for quick configuration and read-out at the field*
  • Sea level to 40,000 MSL operational capability
  • Clearly marked, dedicated "large-screw" compression terminals for connecting On/Off switch and ejection charges
  • On-board 9volt battery with heavy-duty mount and lockdown

    * Please note that access to the Base Settings is made available via the CP3 DIP switch and pushbutton interface. The value of all these settings can be verified or reconfigured at any time without the use of the optional LCD Terminal (available only directly from Missile Works at this time here ) or PC USB interface. They provide a “manual” way to set up the CP3. However, the easiest and fastest way to configure the CP3 and review flight data is via the optional LCD Terminal Module or via the free mDACS PC software available below.

    FUNCTIONAL, DIAGNOSTIC, AND DATA FEATURES

  • Interactive menu programming and operation via pushbutton, DIP switches and LED or using the optional LCD terminal or USB connection to a PC
  • All User setpoints are stored in non-volatile EEPROM
  • All flight data is stored in non-volatile FLASH memory for post-flight recall, even across power cycles
  • Complete on-board diagnostic capability, including battery voltage, baro sensor, input and output test modes, and more.
  • Post-flight log data such as peak AGL elevation, peak velocity, time to apogee, and more!
