Here is an economical (and educational!) way to help members of your troop attain their Astronautics Activity Badge.
This all-in set has everything needed for three scouts to fulfill the rocketry requirements and includes launch pad, launch controller and everything listed below.
Step 1 Build and fly the Taser Twin upper stage with a parachute recovery device using 1 motor
Step 2 Build the booster stage and then fly the Taser Twin as a two stage rocket with a streamer.
Scouts will see the difference in altitude, speed and descent profile for two different recovery devices while learning about rocket flight dynamics, motor total impulse, ejection delays and staging.
- Three Taser Twin rocket kits
- Three tubes of CA gel
- Three 6 inch parachutes
- Recovery Wadding for 20 flights or more
- Estes Porta Pad II launch pad
- Estes Electron Beam launch controller
- 4 x AA batteries
- Three booster motors (A8-0)
- Six upper stage motors (A8-5)
The launch pad and controller can be used with the add-on version of this bundle... and any other rocket fun your troop has in mind! If you already have the rocketry ground support equipment lurking in your shed, you might want the add-on version of this set.
