Nice tilt mechanism! It looks like the 90 deg launch position has the rocket over the cross leg. How are you maintaining stability?

That's a new design nobody has ever published before. It looks like the adjustment angle is quick and easy to set. One improvement you could make is to put some marks along the adjustment slot to show where various angles are located, so you don't have to measure in the field. You can just set it to the indicator mark. Nice work!

I am more working on. an adjustment screw for locking any angle cross leg can adjust 25 deg to 90 deg of angle.
so very soon add any measuring gauge.

That looks great! Just what you need for an adjustable launcher.
