I am not sure if you kids furniture will fly better on a rail or a rod???

LOL, you rail looks good. How heavy a rocket do you think it will handle?

Bowhunter...
Just my opinion but, you might want to make the footprint of the base a bit larger. Just what I can see from the pic, it looks a little undersized for good stability. Then again, it may fly everything you can put on it w/o a problem. ;)

Yea, I think you are right...... This is why I was asking how heavy of a rocket he was thinking this rail could handle......
