No, I didn't recommend
These are great if you only want to demonstrate projectile motion or maybe do video analysis. If you are wanting to take accurate measurements, these won't do it. The plunger that pulls back does not stay straight so there is no consistency in the launches at all. Extremely frustrating for kids who are trying to discover or verify projectile motion concepts.

We apologize that our Visual Scientifics Projectile Launcher did not meet your expectations. This specific model is ideal for use in video analysis and demonstrating projectile motion. If you are interested in a launcher with accurate measurement capability, please see item number 168016.
