For Sale
Foot pedal Bungee launchers

I welded up some extra ones when I made mine.
All steel construction, black industrial tubing, 500lb para cord leaders. Built for a lifetime of use. Comes with pedal, spikes and premade up tubing. You supply the hammer!

Will launch all electric planes with or without landing gear. Never have a bad launch again or count on someone else to heave you plane up. If your field or parks grass is to high and your plane tips forward...no problem, a little bungee action will get her up without any problem. Tired of your very fast but small prop microjet turning into a lawn dart because of no wind or a bad launch?
NERVER AGAIN!!! Money back less shipping if you don't think it worth it! $50 shipped to the lower 48.
Thanks, Cas

10' of bungee and another approx 4' on each end.
A friend shot a quid vid of the BD-5 launch...looks funny as heck, it's there and then it's gone. I will post it once he e-mails it to me. The nice thing with this is that if you have plane problems you just instantly land under control, not like a hand launch.

Would you sell just a foot pedal? I got the rest of my launcher already built (have the bungee and stakes too) just have not made a foot pedal yet.

Hey Cas,

I think I'm going to take one of those guys off of your hands. I've been meaning to make a PVC one for months now, but just haven't found the time to do it.

I've got a Microjet and Twinjet that are both finished, but haven't wanted to fly them yet because of the launch.

Looks like I just found the solution! Let me know your paypal address and I'll send it out to ya. Thanks.

Kevin

Cas,

Got the launcher yesterday. Quality looks fantastic! Thanks! Won't be able to try it out for a week or two. I landed in the hospital this week for 5 days and was let out on Wed., so still need some recovery time.

If you like I'll write something up. The hardest part is installing the hook on the plane. Usually I place them a couple of inches in front of the CG. Even works on planes with landing gear.
