Description

Going big? You might need a stronger launch rod, like this 3/16 diameter rod  built for heavier rockets and higher power motors.

It attaches to the launch pad, and your Estes rocket simply slides over the rod using the launch lugs attached to the rocket. As the rocket launches, it quickly gains enough speed to fly with stability, and then leaves the launch rod. That requires roughly 30mph, and this length is perfect to accelerate most Estes rockets to that speed for most larger rockets that are powered by C11, D and E Engines. Also works great when used as an alignment tool on model rockets that require two launch lugs.

Can be used in the 2215 Porta-Pad II or 2238 Porta-Pad E launch pad.

Also works great when used as an alignment tool on model rockets that require two launch lugs.

    As previously asked, what is the length of the 3/16″ TWO-PIECE MAXI™ LAUNCH ROD?

      Lee, thanks for pointing out that we didn’t have the length posted. The launch rod is 35.5 in. (90.17 cm) long. Thanks for flying with Estes!

  2. Randall

    What is the length of the 1/8, 3/16. and 1/4 inch rods (this information is, surprisingly, not shown in the product descriptions).

  3. Kris (verified owner)

    Better launches

    More stable and straighter launches.

  4. Brandon

    Watch The Joint

    The joint where the two pieces meet can catch on some rockets. I suggest assembling once and sanding the joint smooth. You can store it in a PVC pipe to keep it safe.
