I know, I was seconding your motion. Geez, some people you can't even agree with...

Like I had mentioned previously, Estes asked me to come up with a mini motor two stage rocket, and I did, a nice little one, but, without the motors the design was going nowhere.

Let's come up with a wish list, we did this on the old estes forum and, maybe, someone in the motor businees will take it into consideration.
B14's
C5's
Assorted booster motors including mini's

I'm running out of C11-0's... I'd like to see those back too. And the B8-5.

Unhappy

You will never see a B14 motor again at least from Estes. Back in the day these motors were "hand-drilled" to get the multi-stage core design; explosions were common; the B8 was the next generation B14; instead of drilling the core, Estes motor maker guru ** ***** redesigned parts of the MABEL machine to be able to use a "formed" core..... much less dangerous.... the C5 used the exact same core as the B8.

Estes has a 95% + world-wide market share in 1/4A-E model rocket motors; they have no effective competition; therefore they do not have to innovate; therefore they do not have to listen to its consumers.


sorry to burst your bubbles, but don't hold your breath on any -0 motors or anything else as far as Estes is concerned anytime soon.

If you want variety in model rocket motors (BP/composite), head over to East Europe: the Poles(EMI/TSP), the Czechs(Delta),the Slovaks(Vymopo); Serbia(Ultra); Slovenia (Mach)Ukraine(MRD) all have a plenthora of rocket motors to choose from.

thats my 2 rubles ymmv

terry dean
nar 16158

ps .

by the way, does anybody know approximately when Estes shifted ALL of its model rocket kit manufacturing over to China?

Don't forget the C11-7 - a must for low altitude 24mm multistage rockets (kinda defeats the purpose to fly a C11-0 to D12-7! )

And don't leave out the Chinese model rocket motors, it's an odd assortment:

I go with the 18mm D8's plus booster, B8-0's and 13mm full A boosters for mini's, plus the E's mentioned above.
