I found it and it is decapitated. It is a worn base and legs with no wires or controller or deflector.


I did find a brand new not-assembled Solar Controller from the 1970's and I still have about 4 or 5 boxed Command Controllers. I also have a couple of Astron Controllers which I extended the launch leads to over 30 feet. One is the old small black rounded plastic version.

Just found a big box of rocket stuff. Within is a Big Foot Pad w/ black launch controller and safety key .Not new but in good shape very little use. With the exception of launch rod and blast deflector. I even have assembly instructions for same.

I may have a blast deflector with wrist pin but will have to look around.

I have found an old BigFoot launcher.

But ironically the legs are missing!

Anyone happen to have 4 legs in good shape (no cracks)? Or maybe one that could possibly be re-created for 3D printing?

Man, I think of NARAM-21 in Houston, where IIRC the 18 or 20-something (24?) pads were all Bigfoot launchers mounted on posts above the ground (As NARAM weaned away from rack launchers last seen at NARAM-19 in 1977). NARAM-20 used "Misfire Alley", do not recall if Bigfoots were used that year or what the pads were. But N-21 had all the "satellite" pads controlled by a central control panel.
