Hi All,
I was just wanting some feedback from the forum here if anyone would be interested in seeing a "range case" manufactured. You know how Estes has their cardboard range box that the starter sets sometimes come in? I was thinking of a nicer, larger one made out of a padded nylon that had compartments for say the launch pad (Estes or Quest), launch controller, motors & launch supplies and maybe an open area that could hold a couple of 24" models. Give me any suggestions you might have.

Thanks!!!

You could adapt some of the large rifle cases for this. You would have to alter the foam inserts though.

Most of the guys in my club use tool boxes to carry everything except their rockets. I myself use a $5.00 tackle box that I bought at Wal-Mart when I was just getting started. It holds my Estes launch pad and controller, motors, glue, igniters, igniter plugs, etc. Of course, it's crammed full and I need something bigger now. And I don't have anything at all to carry my rockets or launch rod in. I've seen people use 1" or so PVC pipe with caps on the ends to carry launch rods, and plain cardboard boxes to carry rockets. Since rockets are pretty fragile, I see some sort of carrying case in my future. Something suitable for 24" models would hold most of what's in my fleet. Any idea on pricing or anything yet? Or is this just in the conceptual stage? JRThro Lifetime Supporter TRF Lifetime Supporter TRF Supporter I wonder how large the market is for something like that. Does anyone have figures on the volume of model rocket kits, parts, etc., that are sold in a given year? If nothing else, there sure do seem to be a lot of vendors out there. BobH48 Well-Known Member I use a toolbox for my launch controller, engines, chutes, etc. I use the plastic storage bins from walmart for my LPR rockets. They are 21" X 15" X 5.5" deep and come with a cover for less than$3.00. They also have some that 21" X 15" X 11" deep.

The sizes go up from there.

maybe one with a certain foam thats soft, but goes back to its original position (like those awesome beds) so that it could hold differnet rockets

i personally use my dollar store boxes
