Is this so??

I was doing some research on electronics, and found this in a perfectflite
manual - for their microtimer.
"The small size of the microTimer allow it
to be used with black powder engines as well, providing an
alternative to the recently-discontinued Estes D12-0 motors."
Have D12-0's been discontinued? if so, its the first I've heard of it.

Estes did for a period of time, but that was a couple of years back. Both the -0, and -7. I think at that time they were planning on phasing out models that required those motors, but reconsidered.

D12-7 - i thought that had been discontinued? Over here (UK) perhaps, just as you can't (easily) get C11's or E9s.
Thanks for the info

Regardless, when I first heard about the now "pseudo-discontinuation" of the -0's and -7's, I had a buying conniption, and purchased 12 packs of each... which I still have most of. Lately though, I seem to fly more -3's, and -5's than the others...

You can't legally get E9s, because they haven't been classified and authorised by the HSE. That's not to say that they can't be obtained though.

Rumor that turned out to be false and now it got restarted. Still false.

We get them easy enough here, in UT... at several hobby stores.

Hi Niall,
Just re. your post on rmr......we generally have D12-7's available from stock here in the UK, as well as D12-0's and D11-P's. D12-7's are out of stock at the moment, but on order at one of our American suppliers, and should be shipping later in the week.
All the best for now,
