    Just ordered a Ramp to Launch my RC.

    It's portable, cheap - Skatepark Launch Ramp

    Anyone has experience with this one?

    My buddy has 3 of them. They are a different brand but the same. We use them when we can't transport my biguuns. I have a couple videos on youtube using them. They work great.

    Thanks Dknuckles,
    Just check some of your bashing videos on utube, and they are awesome.
    Do you know how big the one I ordered compared to the one you have in this:

    Those look pretty cool. Can you jump off one and land on another?

    I own one and in my experience its even very hard to line up a jump and launch straight off. Maybe two next to each other is better.

    2 next to each other is much easier, a little duct tape makes the surface between smooth. You can also raise the end of the ramp for a little steeper takeoff, if you want a landing ramp buy a large sheet of wood it is larger and more practical.

    Looks good, but $41 is a lot of money for a ramp... I can make a cardboard one for $0.

    Don't know how long cardboard would last............... but, does anybody else find it insane to do parking lot jumps???!!! Aren't we asking for even more broken parts?

    I built a cardboard ramp last summer and it sat on a cold garage floor with snow and ice and I still use it. The only problem is finding a ramp wide enough.

    Meebert,
    Very good jump, you sure can aim for that small ramp on the opposite site
