Welcome students and teachers!

This page is designed just for you. Here we'll give you an overview of the PML site and the wealth of data, components, and kits available to help make your project a great success.

PML is well aquainted with the procedures for working with individual schools and entire districts. We accept school P.O.s and can provide W9 forms. School discounts are available. Contact Kim for details and to get set up.

The basics: "What fits what?"
Most of our component part numbers are based on the diameter of the airframe... well sort of. Actually, they are based on the Inside Diameter (ID) of the airframe.
So if you choose to build a rocket using our QT-3.9 airframe, the rocket will have a 3.9" (ID). Simply add the wall thickness x 2 to the ID to get the actual Outside Diameter (OD) of the rocket. Sometimes you'll hear people say "I have a 4" rocket". This is the approximate OD of thier rocket.
So now when it comes time to select parts that fit together, just match up the part numbers and you're all set. Here are a few examples...
If you will be using QT-3.9 tubes for your airframe, you will need a CT-3.9 Coupler Tube to join the airframe sections. You will also need a PNC-3.9 Plastic NoseCone, a PS-3.9 Piston System, and CR-3.9-x.x Centering Rings (x.x will be determined by which size motor mount tube you select). It's that simple!

Have a question about which motors and ejection charge delays are appropriate for our kits?
Please note: Kit weights have changed over the years due to material changes made over time. In most cases kits are somewhat heavier than listed. Use these listing as rough guidlines only. Due dilligence requires that you sim your rocket before flight using the actual weight of your rocket, once completed.
Updates to these charts are being made now, but it may take some time to complete.
This file is a .PDF spreadsheet containing all of our kits and many comercially made motors. This matrix will give you the predicted altitude and delay time required for a particular rocket/motor combination, along with a guide on kit reinforcement for exteme flight profiles.

.
Need more specs for all the kits we manufacture?
The .PDF chart above has specs for all of our kits. This includes length, diameter, weight, chute size, Cp, Cd, lug type, etc.
