I see only three reasons for the change:
1. Estes began making their motors again and didn't want to fool with tooling for one of the Mabels.
2. Shortened them to the "industry standard", i.e. Estes' length to be compatible with other models.
3. Decided to discontue "B" motors and shorter casings would be cheaper.

I'm with you on thinking it coincided with them outsourcing again.

I love sanding.
