Default What we're looking for...

To start this thread off, we'd like to get some posts on pad design and construction, electronics (the hardware side), and other supporting equipment that improves the quality of our rocketry time.

Forum open.

Wow .... very quiet thread. GSE doesn't stir up much excitement, I guess.

Here's my launcher ....... a slightly modified Quad Pod.

Some time ago, in another thread here, I posted my dual Estes Launch Pad project. I ended up with several extra pads that came with eBay orders.



I am thinking about building a multi-launch controller to go with it. But that idea came from manually lighting off fireworks the last few years. I hope it will work for both...

Here's mine, PVC legs and stand, old keyless chuck to hold rods, and an old light fixture for a blast deflector.
