View Full Version : Small rail style pad
17th May 2010, 12:12 AM
I am currently using a big old homemade (by someone else) rail. It's 6' long, weight is probably 30 -40 lbs. It is a PIA to use when I am flying rockets that are no more than 5 Lbs.
Is there any rail style pad on the market that is small and light, good for say 10 lb rockets with I class motors and on down?

Always Ready rocketry Sells The Standard Universal Launch Pad. It will take anything from a 1/8 Rod to a 1010 rail.

Wait a minute - the rail itself weighs that much, or the entire pad? What is it made from, I -beams?
There are a few plans for DIY rail pads at EMRR (http://www.rocketreviews.com/reviews/scratch+launch.shtml). I followed this article (http://www.rocketreviews.com/reviews/all/scratch_rail_launchpad.shtml) to build mine. (My comments are at the end of the article.) It breaks down for easy transport, and is lightweight, yet sturdy and stable. And it was, as the title indicated, inexpensive to build.

Check out my site. I manufacture and sell pads for modrock to Level 3. My standard Concept pad might be just what you're looking for.
The Standard pad is the one in front.
