Hm, the estes pad looks kinda weak. If you're gonna get into MPR, I would recommend another pad. I say the Mustang is a nice rocket for MPR intro.

agreed, you can scratch build a Mid-power pad out of PVC for around the $20 <---> $30 range. Use this Forums search engine and search out scratch built pads, or PVC pads, and you will find a lot of good threads on the subject.I'd probably make something out of PVC
PML just charges you full retail price for their kits. For the few extra bucks compared to buying it from a vendor, I have personally preferred to purchase PML kits/parts directly from them (I place my orders over the phone too) because they are *extremely good* about shipping their orders quickly & have excellent customer service! (But there's nothing wrong with using a vendor that you've dealt with before either...)Originally posted by Zippy
Replacement parts are available directly from PML although they charge a premium for kits bought at their own web site.
