HPR Lanuch Pad Plans Please

Post by Bill Mullic » Sat, 23 Mar 2002 00:19:02



It's time to move up from my Estes beginner rockets to MPR and HPR but my
little Estes launch pad ain't gonna cut it. Does anybody have plans for
building a reasonably priced launch pad which can accommodate MPR and HPR?

Thanks much.

Sure do! This pad is cheap, easy to make, simple to use, easy to transport, and
works fine for anything from modrocs to high power rockets up to 7 feet tall
powered by J motors:

HPR Lanuch Pad Plans Please

Depending on what you consider high power, I have plans for a pad that I
just had made.  Personally, considering the size of rockets you might be
firing and the weight, I would not trust the examples shown.

Obvisouly cost is a factor.  I spent $50 on the iron for one of our club
pads and $150 to pay a pro welding firm to fabricate it.  $200 isn't too
much as far as I'm concerned for safety when a rocket could be flying at you
at over 500mph if you don't have a quality pad.  You can see the pad in
action with a PML Amraam 4 firing an I211W (
http://www.dakotathunder.org/media.html pics are on the bottom of the page,
bottom of the rocket is about chest high.  I designed it this way to prevent
any fires on the ground as we launch on grasslands) .  If you want the plans
let me know.  They are yours.

Because you can build for 1/5 the price.
Your pads are fine for those who don't want to build and are willing to
spend the $$.

Go to EMRR and search on "scratch launch pad" and there are (3)
designs.

Hey, Ray, why isn't your design on EMRR?

I had build a nice one (I thought) out of PVC pipe.  The legs
unscrewed from the base and then screwed together to make a rod
carrier.  I used this for four years until I purchased a Yellow Jacket
Wasp primarily because I switched to a rail.  The rail length and
weight with a 1-3 lb rocket made my pad too top heavy.

Enjoy,
Nick

If you want innovation and a quality product, you have to pay for it.
If you want junk, pinch pennies...
