First Stage

Launch Center for model rocket telemetry

Welcome to First Stage. The main objective here is to provide a web site devoted to electronics used in model, large model, and high power rockets. Telemetry, sensors, and data recording will be the center of our efforts. All comments, ideas, and suggestions will be appreciated. Please mail them to: We are just now getting things started, and hope to have lots of goodies on board in a few weeks. Please keep checking back, until then: fly'em high and fly'em SAFE!


VCP Files is a collection of files contributed by various people in response to John Cato's suggestion for a "VCP files frenzy". Please note that all VCP files here have the extension ".txt". The extension ".cp" is not recognized by the geocities software. To use these files with VCP, simply rename them to "XXXX.cp".

Download the VCP program from Sunsite.
