24mm Aerotech SU motors

Will the 24mm aerotech SU motors fit in regular estes D engine type motor
mounts ? I looked around the internet ...but couldn't find a definitive
answer...the aerotech motors are 70mm long just as the estes D motors, but
will they be fine in a rocket with an estes type engine hook and engine

If you used the standard Estes engine clip it will scrape against the AT FWD delay closure. Not a big problem. Your just gonna mark up your case.
In the future just sand down the upper thrust tab of the clip when building your new 24mm powered estes rockets.

Not on an SU... just the RMS case.
Correct-a-mundo. Or, an Estes "E" motor hook, in combination with a cardboard spacer (fits perfectly around the delay well of a 24/40 RMS) works very nicely too. The only two kits I've seen with this "system" included have been the Merc Atlas, and the Phoenix.
