More launchpad and launching sorta stuff...

Richard, Thanks for the compliments. Actually the stem of madrone sits beneath the hardiplank blast deflector so when I launch either I just let the angled blast deflector be the rest for the rocket or I put a small detachable piece of C-beam plastic under the rocket and against the launch rod. Both work pretty well. The oversized hardiplank blast deflector has worked out well to protect all that nice shellac finished wood.

I've now launched 4 times with perfect flights so everything has worked great. I'm pretty stoked about making almost all of the launch pad and launch controller out of things laying around.

Adios - Paul
