Default Rocket Pad kits

Anyone know what happened to Rocket Pad? They used to have a store on Ebay and I picked up several of their kits over a few years, the Gyroc and Invader glider in particular. They were doing some upscales the last time I saw anything from them, but I can't find anything on them at Ebay anymore.

Not sure what happened to them.
Have not seen anything out of them for over 2 years.
I built their Astron Ranger, Astron Cobra, and Astron Scrambler clones.

Is launch pad and rocket pad the same company? I thought they were two different ones.

Two totally different companies. Rocket Pad doesn't have a website, made clone kits and only sold through eBay.

Launch Pad and Rocket Pad are different companies.

Stan, from Rocket Pad, posted the following on TRF last August:

Wow. Sorry to hear that. I did a search on TRF, but I got nothing. Thanks for clearing this up. Hope things turn out for him.
