Amraam 4 CPR3000  

Amraam  4 with CPR3000

 

PML is proud to offer this semi-scale model of the AIM-120 AMRAAM Missile with our CPR3000 Dual-Deployment Recovery system already designed in! The AMRAAM-4 has always been our top seller for conversion to CPR3000, and now we`ve made it even easier with CPR "from the factory". For more details on CPR3000, go to the CPR/ERM page.

Thunder n Lightning  

Thunder ~N~ Lightning

 

An incredible "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. 

PML recommends the PML Accu-Fire Timer for sustainer stage ignition when the Thunder -N- Lightning is flown in two-stage mode. The Transolve ST-2B Staging Timer may also be used.

Nimbus  

Nimbus

 

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. (QT is not recommended for minimum diameter rockets, rockets where the motor casing touches the QT directly). A fully `glassed model (glassing is recomended) weighs approximately 48oz

Features: 
G-10 fiberglass fins 
Piston ejection system 
PMLl nylon parachute 
Plastic nosecone

The Eclipse comes with a 54mm Kwik-Switch 2000 motor mount, a 54" main chute, and an 18" drogue chute, standard. If you've wanted to try CPR, the Eclipse is a great way to do it!

This popular rocket includes the Kwik-Switch motor mount, 0.093" thick G-10 fins, a tail cone and of course, the CPR3000 Dual-Deployment Recovery System.

Mini BBX CPR 3000  

Mini-BBX with CPR3000

 

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 great  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. Add an altimeter ( not included) and you`re ready to fly! 

 

Dia.: 2.1"

Terrier Boost CPR 3000  

Terrier Booster

 

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. 


Features:
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.
