Thanks for the clarification Leo. Wonder why it's almost unheard of stateside, since it appears to be very reliable.

This description reminds me of the operation of the original Estes Electro Launch (1961) lighting a small length of Jetex wick inserted in the nozzle. I'd love to see a close-up picture of this arrangement if you can manage it sometime.
Here is an example using Klima tape match:

You read wrong. It's just a question of cost.
We have the option of using fuses or e-igniters which by the way are great, 100% reliable motor igniters.

My Auriga to demonstrate tape match and e-igniter:

Tape match is just as reliable but less expensiv. I do a lot of cluster staging with the tape match method and it works perfectly.

My 2 stage Auriga using the above mentioned method as a two stager:
Nice.

I'll get some pics of the business end next time it flies.
