Aerotech Rocket motor reload tube 4 sale

I have a NIB Aerotech RC Glider aluminum reload tube for sale. These are commonly used with the Phoenix rocket glider. They sell for $100 and possibly even more today.

I'd like $70 which includes delivery within the USA, slightly higher outside the country. Payable by PayPal to: eberris@comcast.net.

Please send any replies to my e-mail address: eberris@comcast.net

The first "I'll take it" followed by a prompt PayPal payment gets it.

Thanks,
Ed

I would like to buy this. I live in Michigan. Where do you pay the propellent? I have looked at on the web for a book that tells you how to reload these engines? How do you do it?

I also want to just use "re loadable" motors. Not big rockets, but do want to venture beyond the typical "E" or "F" Estes engine, for more power.
I am working on larger rockets, 4 to 5 feet in height.
Does anyone have any experience in reloading engines or firing multiple engines electrically at one time??

Not what you want

This reload tube is specifically designed for the Aerotech Rocket Glider. It is not intended for use with rockets as it does not have provisions for a return chute. Unless you plan to use this in a rocket glider, this is not what you want to purchase.

You can find what you are looking for at Balsa Machining Service's web site. http://www.balsamachining.com/

Good luck.

For rockets, you want something like the below links. E-G impulse, reloadable motors and reloads for them. You can make your own reloads, but it's not so simple as you might think. If you have to ask, you aren't ready to do it.

Ok, thanks for the help both of you.

The firing kit looks easy to build: 12volts more amps and a couple of gator clips.
Already have this.

For the motors, I have the RMS-24-40 and the reload kit. There has got to be instructions on You tube or something for loading. Also propellant? Where to purchase??
