    Adeptor - Convert a Tripod into a Launch Pad

    Odd'l Rockets Adeptor - Convert a Tripod into a Launch Pad

    The Odd'l Rockets Adeptor allows you to easily attach a 1/8" or 3/16" launch rod to a standard camera tripod. This turns the tripod into a professional-looking, and easy-to-use launch pad. The rocket is raised off the ground making it easier to prep and see at lift-off.

    Most tripods make it easy to adjust the launch angle and to tilt the launch pad to allow the rocket to be placed on the rod.

    A tripod and blast deflector are not included.

    An inexpensive tripod designed for standard-sized cameras can support most model rockets.

    A blast deflectoris required. You can use one from an Estes or Quest launch pad or fashion one from a piece of metal. The photos show the Adeptor being used with the blast deflector from an Estes launch pad. The Adeptor also works with Odd'l Rockets' Blast!, though you may have to enlarge the opening on the bottom of the Blast! slightly.

    Blast! Model Rocket Blast Deflector

    Odd'l Rockets Blast! Model Rocket Blast Deflector

    Odd'l Rockets' updated Blast! is a ceramic blast deflector that channels the rocket's exhaust away from your model. This prevents the motor's heat and exhaust from damaging your rocket. Blast! is non-conductive to prevent shorted clips from spoiling your launch attempt.

    Odd'l Rockets has improved on their original Blast! in several ways.
    • New molds made from an original MPC ceramic deflector (designed by
      G. Harry Stine)
    • A wider base provides better coverage under larger diameter rockets
    • The Blast! fits over and protects an Odd'l Rockets Adeptor (sold separately)

    The Blast! fits most launch pads using a 1/8" launch rod. The hole in the Blast! may be enlarged for use with 3/16" launch rods. The Blast! blast deflector is custom-manufactured by Odd'l Rockets.

    Launch pad and launch rod are not included.

    Break Away Model Rocket Kit

    Odd'l Rockets Break Away Model Rocket Kit

    Odd'l Rockets' Break Away features "break-apart" recovery. At apogee, the rocket breaks into several sections which wiggle their way back to earth. A Kevlar tether holds the pieces together making recovery safe and easy. Just slide the segments back together and you are ready for another flight.

    Odd'l Rockets has improved upon the original Break Away by using longer coupler connections and engineering better, easier-to-construct segment ties.

    Pigasus Model Rocket Kit

    Odd'l Rockets Pigasus Model Rocket Kit

    The Pigasus is not your typical "three-fins and a nose cone" rocket.  It's a two wings, four legs, and a snout rocket (and ears and glasses, too).

    Fly this pink piglet on a B6 or C6 engine for a squealing stable flight then watch as the porcine projectile returns to earth under its parachute.

    "It's a terrific pork flyer." - Ham Solo

    "Don't fry your bacon, fly it!" - Piggie Smalls (The Notorious P.I.G.)

    "Sometimes a pig isn't just a pig." - Pigmund Freud

    "I feel a connection to this rocket." - Kevin Bacon

    "Odd'l Rockets has produced a real wiener." - Col. Tom Porker

    "You will believe a pig can fly!" - G. Harry Swine

    If the Pigasus kit is "Sold Out," please don't despair.  We expect another litter to arrive soon!

     

    Raise Spring (10-pack) Model Rocket Accessory

    Odd'l Rockets Raise Spring (10-pack) Model Rocket Accessory

    This is a package of ten (10) Raise springs.

    The "Raise" spring is the launch accessory you never knew you needed, but, once you try it, you'll wonder how you lived without it.

    The Raise is used to raise your rocket above the blast deflector to prevent charred fins from engine flame flashback, prevent shorted micro-clips, and make it easier to hook the clips to the igniter. Raise is especially useful for boost gliders, monocopters, helicopters, and odd-rocs to hold the rocket at the correct height ensuring launch success.

    The Raise means no more sticky tape wraps, charred clothes pins, or hunting for a used motor casing.

    The Raise features a brass extension arm provide a wider stand for the rocket and to prevent the spring catching under the newer Estes-style engine hooks.

    The Raise is custom-manufactured by Odd'l Rockets to fit a standard 1/8" launch rod. It easily slides up and down the launch rod, yet provides a firm stand-off for your rocket. Once your rocket is placed on the Raise, its weight locks the spring coils to the launch rod.

    Sputnik Model Rocket Kit

    XL EH - 3.00-inch Extended-Length Engine Hook (5 pack)

    Odd'l Rockets XL EH - 3.00-inch Extended-Length Engine Hook (5 pack)

    This is a package of five (5) Odd'l Rockets XL EH extended-length engine hooks.

    This extended-length engine hook is designed for use with standard-length (2.75") motors.  The extra .25" length allows the motor mount's thrust ring to be placed inside the hook creating a stronger, more secure engine mount.

    Here is how a typical motor mount is assembled with a standard 2 3/4" engine hook. Note that the top of the engine hook is below the engine block.

    When the ejection charge fires to deploy the rocket's recovery system, the motor pushes back against the engine hook.  Especially with the stronger ejection charges we are now seeing, this can enlarge or even tear the slit holding the upper bend of the engine hook. 


    With the longer XL EH engine hook, the top of the hook is located above the engine block. This locks the engine hook in place, preventing it from sliding backwards.  There can be no movement of the engine during thrust or ejection.
