Hybrid Ready Kits

"Hybrid Ready rockets that fly just as well with composite motors.
ERM equipped for altimeter based parachute deployment."

All Hybrid-Ready kits have been discontinued.

Hybrid motors were developed some time ago and have now become the economical alternative to composite motors. As you may already know, hybrid motor ready rockets must have three features not found in most other rockets:

-- An extended motor tube to accommodate the longer length of the hybrid system.

-- An electronic recovery system since hybrid motors do not have an ejection charge built in.

-- Rail lugs since most hybrid launch pads use a guide rail rather than launch rod.

We are pleased to announce an entire line of Hybrid Ready rockets kits that incorporate all of the above!

In addition to all the usual features of a PML rocket kit, all of the kits below (except the Ion: 28" and Nimbus: 30") have a full 36" motor tube allowing the use of even the longest hybrid motor. Apogee parachute deployment is accomplished via the new ERM (Electronic Recovery Module). This new system allows you to use the Accu-Fire Timer or the Co-Pilot Altimeter* that you may already own. This system uses many of the same features and components that has made our CPR system so popular. Flight prep takes less than 5 minutes!

Please see our CPR/ERM Page for more details on our ERM system (Electronic Recovery Module).
