I bet you would Drew...and I would love to see you fly it!

Apart from being a 54/4000 I wonder what the designation and total impulse is for this puppy!

Drew isn't the only one who'd love to get their hands on these puppies!!!

Pete, I couldn't find out much about the Red - it isn't on their products pages, BUT:

Check out the White:



Characterised as an L2050 - 4,800Ns 2.4 sec burn :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

...and, the Blue!!!



Disclaimer - I don't work for Loki or have any commercial arrangement with them...but these 54mm 'movers' are freaking awesome 8)

(I need to fly more Ls 8) )

I spoke with Loki many times about importing their motors and actually brought in some of their hardware back in 2010. Unfortunately they were not willing to co-operate to have their motors authorised and subsequently has been a dead duck in the water.

Apparently they don't even sell to California due to excessive regulations and costs so you'd have to offer them something pretty good to get them signed up for Aus.

The 38mm K was one of the things that I looked at in the beginning a as something nice to get and I have that hardware.

California is challenging and I explain to Americans that Australia is basically made up of 8 California's. It is actually around the other way though, Loki need to make it worth our while since they don't want to co-operate with basic requirements for explosives exportation.
