    at the very least, for gods sake, run some string on the other side and run them out away from the racks a bit. as it is right now it looks like it's prone to tipping to the side you have roped down.

    it looks very unstable/dangerous.

    i could be wrong but this is my first impression just seeing the pictures.

    I think you did a good job on it. It just needs a little tweaking. I would recommend that you ditch the rope and attach a couple of 2x4's to the bottom for stability. After that, I'd load er up and let the rockets fly.

    Trust me it's so tight it can take a big kick or push on either side, plus there's a pipe on the other side where there's no rope, but other than that does it look like it will sucsessfully launch rockets?

    You could add a kick out leg to it thats adjustable. I did that to one of my launchers and it worked great. I could angle it out as far as I wanted then. And for extra added stability I ended up added Eye Bolts to the sides and I drive metal stakes down so it won't tip.




    You could easily add something like that to your exhisting design without having to redo the thing.


    Good luck with it!!!! Building it is half the fun in my opinion.
