Reloadable Casing fit in Disposable Motor Mount?

Postby Digit » Sat Mar 12, 2016 7:23 am

I am in planning stages of my next rocket which will see me progress to D and E motors, however I've gathered from reading the forum I might as well just light my rocket on fire rather than use an Estes E in it. It's also a step in my club's LPR certificate program to use a reloadable motor, so I am wondering if I can get a reloadable E that fits into the same Estes motor mount that the disposable D will? Save me building so many LP rockets.

Cheers

Why yes you can, look at the CTI 24mm 1grain or the Hobbyline 24mm. I can show you both of these on Sunday.

Just FYI, the 'Blast off program' isn't a 'certification', it is just a personable achievement program.

Yep, I understand that it was voluntary. I just saw it as a well structured way to learn about each aspect of the hobby first before building a big boy rocket. 8)

Aerotech's 24/40 reloadable motor is designed to fit the space of a disposable D motor mount. The 24/60 is designed to fit the space of a disposable E motor mount. For CTI I believe the 3 grain and smaller would easily fit the E motor mount.

Don't be offput by the seemingly expensive cases for limited reload options, particularly with the 24/60 case(one reload, F35W)
Aerotech is testing new reloads for the Hobbyline range and apparently one is already currently getting certified ;)
