Oh gosh :oops: thanks.

Actually Nick (my son) took the Matrix video! (it wasn't him that you could hear talking though). I haven't grasped the combined skill of launching and videoing yet!

Anyway, I'm always glad to share the footage!
I reckon we do quite well with with good photgraphers and videographers to record our launches.

Too right, Mark and Nick do well, I usually get the lift off and then film the ground sideways for the next few mins :)

Hey, what is the base you guys are using for the low power pad?

hi astro the LPR and MPR is my launch rack it is just like scoop said , it is sold as a painters or handymans trestle ladder the great thing is that it is so light folds up and has ajustable legs for uneven surfaces 40 dollars at the local hardware , it holds five rods all up.

I'm looking around for a decent multi LPR launcher, and now I may have found it. Thanx wolflair.
