(ROL Newswire) -- AeroTech has re-released its 24mm E15W single-use
model rocket motors, which have not been manufactured since October
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
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:
