    Realistic wheels have removable hubs that can be painted. Kit includes predrilled balsa wood body blank, CO2 cartridge, long axles, four wheels, four brass washers, screw eyes, sandpaper, straw for axle tubes, and instructions.

    LaunchGuard System: The Classroom-Caliber Solid-Fuel Rocket Launcher

    #54493
    $330.00

    Safety is a concern for any teacher who builds and launches solid-fuel rockets. The LaunchGuard System provides a safe and reliable means of launching model rockets.

    Students launch rockets by pressing a button on the Launch Module. When the supervisor (or teacher) presses and holds the button on the Supervisor Module, the system is live and the student can launch. Or the teacher can substitute a special “launch key” for the Supervisor Module. When the key is plugged into the student’s Launch Module, the system is live and ready for launch.

     

    The launchpad is made from sturdy plastic, has an adjustable launch rod, and comes with the standard 1/8" diameter x 31" rod. It also accepts a 3/16" diameter x 31" rod for larger rockets (3/16" rod sold separately). The modules are made of rugged aluminum. The Supervisor Module uses six AA batteries (included) and has a 15-foot cord to keep students at a safe distance.

     

    The LaunchGuard System includes the Launchpad and Launch Commander, which can also be ordered individually.
