Can't find igniters in the launch box, but have like 10 motors.
Was wondering if there is a way to DIY some micro igniters?

Thanks,

As Mr. Stafford mentioned in the previous post. 30ga bare nichrome wire is by far the easiest way to make your own igniters for your Micro Maxx motors.
as long as you stay with about 2" long pieces simply folded in half make outstanding single motor igniters. They will work with any 1-1/8" smooth jaw micro clips.
you can get 30ga nichrome wire from McMaster-Carr in 1/8lb rolls.
