Can you fly a rocket on a Estes PSII launch pad without the blast deflector stand?

if I understand the question...er, yes but the deflector will wobble and possibly deflect the rocket exhaust onto the plastic components.

Bricks are great. One on each leg, and a fourth to tilt the deflector.

If you lost the blast deflector stand, you can create new ones using a nipple (all thread lamp pipe) from a lamp repair kit and some nuts to create a new one.

I launched it and it went fine. Didn't even touch the plastic components...
