ROL NEWS--AeroTech Re-releases E15W Single-Use Motors

AeroTech Re-releases E15W Single-Use Motors May 2, 2005 Web posted at: 4:52 PM EDT
(ROL Newswire) -- AeroTech has re-released its 24mm E15W single-use
model rocket motors, which have not been manufactured since October 2001.
These motors were very popular with consumers due to the fact they are the same physical size (diameter and length) as a black powder 'D' motor, but produce over twice the total impulse. The E15W also delivers more power than a black powder 'E' motor in a significantly shorter casing. They are perfect for rockets of lightweight construction as well as oversize models that need that extra bit of power.
The E15W is available in 4 and 7 second delays and in a "plugged" configuration with no delay or ejection charge. The plugged version can be used in robust rocket powered gliders such as the HobbyLab SR-71 Blackbird.
The E15W is defined as a "model rocket motor" and while no user certification is required, they are recommended for consumers 16 years of age or older.
The E15W can be shipped via U.S. Postal Service Parcel Post with no hazmat fee, due to the fact that the motor contains less than 30 grams of propellant each.
A copy of the E15W instructions (including a thrust curve and other motor data) may be downloaded in PDF format from the "Instructions" page of the AeroTech Resource Library. More info may be found at:
