  1. Jackson

    It’s pretty good. I launched the Alpha 6 once and the U.S. ARMY rocket three times at a 0 degree angle, and the piece that holds the blast deflector broke off so the deflector is at an angle during one of my launches. My only options are to launch my rockets at an angle to compensate for the angled deflector, leave it and risk damaging my yard or burning it (Kinda already does that), buy a new pad, or find something to hold the deflector up. So it’s good, but maybe not the most durable.

    Nice launch pad

    I like this launch pad better than the orange one. It feels sturdy and stable.

    I love it

    I grew up using this setup. I was using the astron II for a while I never cared for it because you can’t adjust the launch angle on it as easily as you can on this one. Awesome launch system. I do miss the black electron beam launch controller.

    great product

    I got this one to replace my old setup, glad everything hasn’t change much.

    Simple But Effective

    This is the classic Estes launch pad that seems like it has been around forever. It’s very stable for all but the Pro Series rockets. The only issue is the 2-piece launch rod; the joint can “catch” on some rockets. I suggest assembling it once, sanding the joint smooth, and then storing it in a long PVC pipe.

    Launch pad review.

    I also love this pad. I have launched my Mean Machine from it several times as well as all of my other low power rockets. The launch rod not coming apart is somewhat of a problem tho. I have 9 launch pads with 2 piece rods. I made a carrying case from copper pipe and end caps. Just made it a little longer than my rods. Problem solved.

    Great first pad!!!!!

    I have the Porta-Pad 2, and I have launched rockets on it over 10 times, and it still works like new. One thing I don’t like, though, is that once I put the rod together, I can’t get it apart. Otherwise, I would recommend the Estes Porta-Pad 2.
