This is my first prototype of a quick connect release mechanism.
This launcher works well with small sized rockets. Any large rockets tend to over balance the base.
Atlantis is constructed of hot dipped galvanized steel. It has a quad manifold allowing the unit to charge several rockets independently or a single rocket with multiple staging as with Poseidon
It is fitted with copper quick connect garden hose fittings.
The fittings are released via a cable system attached to the quick connect. Launch is achieved simply by pulling on a rope clipped to the cable.
This full metal design is a vast improvement over the previous model.
