Launch Tower

Postby joeman » Tue Dec 18, 2018 7:23 am

Hello,
Does QRS have a launch tower suitable for 3-fin 40mm rocket?

I _may_ be able to make it for January flight.

Cheers!

Merry Christmas Joe,

We most likely do, just need to know whether to bring it or not as we don’t usually keep those in trailers for regular launches.

What is the over all OD of the fin tips?

Hi Blake,
I've packaged up the rocket and all my spare parts and will send down today in anticipation that it will fit.

Cheers!
