Ultimate High Altitude Launch Kit

Everything you need to launch and recover a high altitude balloon kit, with the addition of our most popular options and accessories. The kit includes a 1200g balloon, data logger, extra support arms, postal insurance for the package, and we will cut a hole in the payload where the camera can peek out.

This is the perfect option if you're not sure about selecting options or you are purchasing this as a gift.  Excellent kit for a science fair project and experiments as well.



Price: $ 799.99 / Each




 
AVAILABLE FOR USA ONLY (Due to SPOT GPS Export Restrictions)

The Sky-Probe Ultimate Launch Kit is just that, our highly popular near space kit with all of our most popular options.  If you are unsure on what options to pick on our Complete Kit, this package has everything you need so you don't have to make any hard choices.  If you are thinking about buying a near space weather balloon kit for someone, this will be sure to impress.  This package includes everything in our Complete Kit, with the following additions: 1200g balloon, SPDLV15 GPS Datalogger (Flight Computer), and 2 extra Support Arms. If you're international just select these same options without the SPOT on our Complete High Altitude Kit.

This is the perfect gift for spending quality time with the family! Work together to build your kit, plan the launch, and track your payload down! We've spent countless hours on launches with our families building, launching, and retrieving kits, and it's always a satisfying experience. A high altitude weather balloon is also a great way to get kids interested in science and engineering. With a price like this, it's the gift that keeps bringing families together, for less than any comparable kit you can find anywhere else.

Everything you need to get started with your own launch, minus a camera and helium. This kit is designed to be lightweight yet rigid enough to mount experiments inside or outside. The launch box is designed to be modular, you can use the extra poles for multiple viewing platforms or other experiments. The foam inside the box is pre-scored, you just pull out what you don't need to fit your electronics. You simply can't find a more complete and inexpensive launch kit. Best of all, you save BIG when you buy the package, plus you get complete documentation and technical support!

*Note: Kit no longer includes the Contour ROAM, as the company is now out of business.
