Anyone use or own one of these?



I'm looking at the, Tri-3 Launch Pad.

Thanks

Nearly the entire state of Texas is using a version of these pads. They work quite well. If you get them, and if applicable for your club, ask for the modification that allows you to use a pipe-supported rail.

I'm waiting on a shipping quote, before I order.

I'm also asking for no paint.

Two reasons for no paint

1. I don't have to try and match paint in the future.
2. I plan to make some additions/mods to the pad.

One addition is to make a rail mount that will fit my current rail that has a stiffener back.

Second addition, I have a 10' launch tower that I want to attach to the pad.

I talked to Royce and he commented on the new BIG pad, it will have 5 legs. I wasn't interested in a larger pad, so didn't pay much attention beyond that.

Once I have the pad, make my mods, I'll post a photo of my mods.

This pad isn't for the club, though anyone can use it, when I bring it to club launches.

I would love to see some pictures if anyone orders one.
