They seem to have some interesting scale designs. Wondered if anyone had built one, had some info on quality, buildability, etc.
Untrue. TLP kits are being produced again!Originally posted by airwolfe1
I think these kits will be the replacment for "The Launch Pad" kits that are no longer produced, but they are so much more rugged than those. I'm replacing the fins on my Sea Sparrow with G-10 and putting in a 38mm mount. Think it'll shred?
Not sure on that one.Originally posted by airwolfe1
When did they start producing them?
Steve, I have no idea what their internal sales procedures or controls are. My only suggestion would be to go with a reputable vendor that can guarantee their own inventory. Aside from the two mentioned above, I don't know who else has them in stock. Best of luck with the "lost in space" order.If the Launch Pad kits are being produced, why haven't I recieved the ones I orderd back in April?
Based on current (& future) Scale Kits reviews at EMRR seem to lament that the fins on their kits are not TTW So as long as you stay within the recommended motor range, they are very well designed/built kits.Originally posted by airwolfe1
Yeah....the lack of thru the wall fin tabs to mount onto the MMT would be my only drawback with these kits. Just picked up an ALARM for a future rainy day project.
Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies probably has a slight advantage over other vendors waiting for TLP kits - he just stops by Chuck's house and picks them up on his way to (or back from) launches.Originally posted by rebar_rocketry
I have an order in right now (that I've had in since April) for 75 of the launch pad kits.
