Everett, WA - Rocket Vision is now selling a Starter Kit for mid-power
rocketry. The kit contains a Trans-Pod Launch Pad, a Veri-Fire Solo
Launch Controller, a 3' launch rod, four Flight-Star E15-7 motors, and
two Rugged-Rockets of the buyer's choice. The price for the set is
$174.95 - a 15% savings over buying the items separately. The Starter
Kit is currently being featured on the home page of the company's web

Rocket Vision's Rugged-Rockets are renowned for their toughness and
high performance. Their nonspiral phenolic airframes and G-10
fiberglass fins enable them to withstand high velocity launches and
less-than-ideal recoveries. The Mach-Buster, Rocket Vision's most
popular rocket, will break the sound barrier on an F or G motor. The
other rocket choices for the Starter Kit include the Check-Six and Spit-
Fire, both with payloads, the Solar-Venture, which has a phenolic ring
fin supported by three fiberglass struts, and the Six-Pack, which has
six phenolic tube fins. The Star-Fire, the sixth in the Rugged-Rocket
line, is not included as an option for the Starter Kit because it is
not recommended for flight on an E motor.

The unique design of the Trans-Pod enables it to function both as a
launch pad and as a launch rod carrier. Two of the three PVC legs
unscrew from the head unit then re-attach to the third leg, forming a
carrier for rods of up to 6' in  length. The Trans-Pod comes with a 12"
diameter blast plate.

The Veri-Fire Solo is the only launch controller which can detect and
report a short circuit. This 12-volt controller has recessed indicator
lights and a side-mounted momentary firing switch with audible click
feedback. It comes with an arming lock with two keys and a 30' igniter
