Almost all motors on backorder

Postby Raaahbin » Thu Feb 28, 2019 9:48 pm

Hi there,

I've just been putting together a shopping cart of motors for Thunda2, and almost every motor I'm looking to buy is listed as "Out of stock - available for backorder". Is there going to be a shipment before Thunda2, or will I need to make do with the motors I've already got? I'm certainly happy to order things for collection at Thunda like I did last time... but not much point in ordering motors to burn at Thunda if they won't be in the country before then!

Cheers,
Robin

Hi Robin,

The motor order for THUNDA2 closed in September 2018 as ample time was needed to ensure CTI would be able to fill the motor order. My expectation is that Blake has further stock en route with the motor order that exceeds the THUNDA2 order to restock AusRocketry but you'd have to speak to him about that. If I were him I certainly wouldn't list them as "in stock" until they were actually on the ground so it's not entirely unsurprising that most AP is being listed as Out of stock.

Makes sense - I can certainly get every rocket flown with the motors I've already got, but for a special event like Thunda I'd prefer to be able to do a few flights per day if I can. Hopefully the container will arrive soon and we'll see what we've got!
