(ROL Newswire) -- The Tripoli Motor Testing (TMT) committee of the
Tripoli Rocketry Association has certified two new Easy Access RMS
reload kits using AeroTech's fast-burning "Black Max" propellant, the
38/480 I225FJ-M and the 38/720 I364FJ-M.
RMS motors using Black Max propellant ignite quickly and generate high
average thrust levels very similar to those produced by the equivalent
White Lightning reloads in the same motor hardware. Therefore they are
perfect for larger, heavier rockets that may not be appropriate for use
with the lower-thrust Black Jack motors.
These reloads are sold in a "medium" (approximately 10 second) delay
configuration. RDK-11 Plus may be used to create a "short"
(approximately 6 second) delay, and RDK-15 Plus may be used to create a
"long" (approximately 14 second) delay. Black Max propellant, like the
slower-burning Black Jack, has a distinctive exhaust note and produces a
dense, rich black smoke that is easy to track.
The I225FJ and the I364FJ are only the first in a series of new Black
Max RMS reload kits that are planned for release throughout 2006.
RCS is now accepting orders for the new Black Max reloads and
anticipates shipments to dealers to begin in late May.
