(ROL Newswire) -- The AeroTech division of RCS Rocket Motor Components
(RCS), Inc. is pleased to announce the certification of three new
Reloadable Motor System (RMS) reload kits by the Tripoli Motor Testing
(TMT) committee. These reloads are the 29mm G79W, 38mm G61W and the 38mm
Technical specifications may be found on the AeroTech website at
The G79W uses two standard grains from the 29mm high power RMS line, and
the G61W uses a single standard 38mm RMS grain. The I600R uses standard
length 38mm Redline grains that have been modified to reduce the motor
output to just under 640 N-sec. The I600R was specifically designed for
use in this year's LDRS 'I-Lite' Bowling Ball loft competition and
produces an initial thrust of over 180 pounds with a duration of just
under 1.1 seconds.
The two 'G' reloads fit new RMS casings that are being introduced
simultaneously by AeroTech and Dr. Rocket/Reloadable Systems. These
cases are compatible with existing 29 & 38mm high power closures. The
G79W is NOT compatible with the 29/40-120 model rocket RMS hardware. The
I600R fits existing 38/720 motor hardware.
The three new reloads are being released in conjunction with LDRS-23,
the annual high power rocket launch sponsored by the Tripoli Rocketry
Association. Limited quantities of G61W and G79W reloads and 29/120 and
38/120 RMS cases will be available from AeroTech dealers attending the
launch. Initial sale of the I600R reloads will be restricted to
participants in the I-Lite Bowling Ball Loft competition.
The G79W and G61W reloads qualify as "model rocket motors" and no user
certification is required, though purchasers must be 18 years of age or
older in compliance with Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
regulations. A Level 1 Tripoli or NAR certification is required for
of the I600R reload.
