Hello. Does anyone know where I can get replacement caps for the Launch Pad ballasts. I need the black cap and well as the plug that goes under the black cap. I need to get three of both. Can someone tell me price as well as where I can get them. Thanks

I can speak for the Fly High Fat Sac caps if it does any good at all. I don't know where to find the plugs, but if you go to WalMart there are a couple of decent matches for the cap. I have used the Bar Brand Engine Leak Sealer bottle cap (price $1.97) and I have also heard that the small Gatorade (8 or 12 oz I think) caps work. If you use waterbed attachments to fill, then the caps would be the same for your brand fat sac.

I think we have those in stock, I'll double check in the AM and post up my finds.

the Skylon Launch Pad's do infact use waterbed fittings.

Thanks everyone... Erk let me know the price. I have found the waterbed plugs and caps but it seems like $5-$9 seems a little steep for pieces of plastic. But if that is the going rate I guess I will have no choice.

Well I got some.. but the caps that I got had some issues. The lip on the ballast of the fill plug are wider than the cap so the cap does not screw in unless I cut the cap shorter or cut the lip of the ballast bag fill nipple. Also, another mistake was that it has four fill ports instead of three... for some reason I thought there were only three. Got to get another one and modify it so it fits correctly.
