Before Estes realized the mistake and took down the premature So Long product page on their website the instructions showed the motors taped together.

Attached are pictures of a production Estes So Long kit.

The body tubes have a thicker/heavier wall.

Itís most likely BT-52H/29mm motor mount tube. When I first saw the pictures I thought maybe it was made up from BT-55 tube reinforced with a full length section of coupler tubing but using straight BT-52 tubes would definitely be lighter and strong enough for Estes 29mm BP motors.

Maybe, just MAYBE, Estes will also be releasing the "E60" coreburner motors, too ?
