This is the AeroTech Initiator Starter Kit. This set is the perfect introduction to the thunderous experience of E, F, and G powered rockets. This comprehensive kit includes the over 3 foot tall Initiator rocket, Mantis launch pad, Interlock 12 volt launch controller, and complete illustrated assembly instructions. 

AeroTech model rockets are not your average rocket kit. The large size, sleek aerodynamics and adult styling will single out AeroTech rockets as something special. But, the real revolution is on the inside! When you take a look at the included components, that’s when you will see the difference. With features that include large, colorful, self adhesive decals, adapters that allow the use of various sizes of AeroTech motors, and strong, light Aero-Fiber centering rings, AeroTech is the obvious choice for anyone looking to discover how much fun big rockets can be.

Mantis Launch Pad: The Mantis is perfect for flying both mid-power rockets (E, F, G) and small model rockets (A through D) as it accepts 1/4”, 3/16” and 1/8” launch rods. Mantis makes loading a rocket easy with a swing-arm that can lower the launch rod to a horizontal position. Loaded rockets sit well off the ground for comfortable igniter hook up. Mantis is the only mid-power rocket launch pad that allows launch rod elevation and azimuth adjustments to be made without having to pick up and move the entire launcher. Mantis come with a two-piece 1/4” diameter launch rod.

Interlock Launch Controller: A launch controller is only as good as it is safe and convenient. When armed, the Interlock controller emits a warning tone to alert spectators to a possible launch and after firing, the Key Eject system automatically disarms the firing circuit for the utmost in personal protection. Our Interlock controller is conveniently designed to hook up directly to your car’s 12 volt battery and to assist in placing you at a safe launch distance, incorporates 40 feet of heavy-duty power cord.

Mid-Power Rockets: Beyond "traditional" model rocketry is what many call "mid-power rocketry". Rockets in this category typically use composite propellant model rocket motors in the `E` through `G` sizes, although black powder `E` model rocket motors are also available. Mid-power model rockets generally weigh less than two pounds, but can fly higher than traditional model rockets. Mid-power model rockets containing no more than 4.4 ounces (125 grams) of propellant and weighing no more than 3.3 pounds (1500 grams) may also be flown without special permission or licenses. Mid-power model rockets are not necessarily more difficult to build than traditional model rockets. Composite propellant mid-power model rocket motors are more expensive than the smaller black powder model rocket motors ($5-$27 per flight), but usually cost less per unit of power. Mid-power model rocket motors are produced in both single-use (SU) and reloadable (RMS) types.
