Cool Lobby for the C11-X

Now that Estes is being run by a rocketeer and advised by Vern Estes, can we lobby to reverse the Hobbico decision to eliminate the C11 and get it back into production ?

I have a number of rockets that will have to be converted to Aerotech C and D motors when my C11 supply is gone.

It is worth a try.

I'd much rather have the B14, B8, or C5 back instead of some heavy, overpriced, 24mm C.
Maybe now with a real rocket team at the helm we can get these instead of LAME-O EXCUSES of why they won't do it.

The C11 would easy to make since the tooling exists. The older motors had their challenges and the C11 solved them in terms of impulse and ease of production. No need to drill out any cores !

I for one would very much like to see the C11s return, at least the C11-3 and C11-5.

While I agree with GH that I'd like to see some old 18mm kickers come back, I'll be happy to see the C11 vs not getting anything at all.

I'm in for the C11s. I cloned the Farside-X specifically with the C11-0 in mind for the booster.

Same here, except I did not clone it, it was the original Estes kit.....
