The first six 54/4000 Loki Red reloads...

The first six 54/4000 Loki Red reloads are finished and ready for bagging. Each reload is cut so that the total propellant length is within .030” of filling the case. Much time and great care is taken machining crucial details by hand into each grain, details that need to be taken on such an extreme motor such as this, details which ensure consistently reliable operation. These same details are reproduced on the L-2050 Loki White which is soon to be the second largest 54mm reload to ever be commercially certified. In addition to the custom made propellant grains, each reload comes with a precisely fit X Grade NEMA paper phenolic motor liner, a one of a kind, highly efficient, single use phenolic nozzle with a graphite throat insert, and a 2.5” long by 1” diameter tracking smoke grain designed for increased smoke output, reduced base drag after motor burn out and visible tracking well after apogee. Be sure to consider all of these facts when the retail pricing is announced after certification.

Simply put, aside from the L-2050 Loki White, there is no other high power rocket motor remotely comparable to the custom made reload that you see pictured here. Look for these 54/4000 Loki Red reloads to be certified in the coming months from Tripoli Motor Testing. Thank you.

I've tried, but Loki refuse to issue the info to have their motors authorised in this country so it isn't going to happen anytime soon.
