say 71 ( I may extend this later).
I got into the hobby in 1967 and the igniters I remember using were nichrome
wire that had a blue or black pyrogen in the middle. You bent it in a U
shape and inserted it into the engine nozzle and held it in place with a dab
of wadding and tape.
Can anybody enlighten me as to what igniters were used with the various MMi
motors (after they stopped using fuse? and was the fuse a Jetetx fuse?)
Wasn't there a loop wire igniter prior to the Astron igniter?
When did the Estes Solar Igniter make its appearance?
What kind of igniters did Centuri use before it introduced its Irv Wait/RDC
derived Sure Shot?
What About FSI in back in the day?
any help will be greatly appreciated along with any pics that you might have
