ROL NEWS--Apogee Components Announces E6 and F10 Motors

Apogee Components Announces E6 and F10 Motors
February 4, 2004
Web posted at: 8:02 PM EST
(ROL Newswire) -- Apogee Components is announcing that the long-burn E6
and F10 composite propellant motors are now back in production, and are
available for immediate shipment.
Both the E6 and the F10 are unique in that they have tremendously long
burn times compared to other rocket motors. The 24mm diameter E6 has a
burn time of 7.2 seconds, while the 29mm diameter F10 burns nearly 8
seconds (measured: 7.8 seconds). The advantage of this is that a
lightweight rocket can literally travel out of sight. The F10 engine, in
the Apogee Aspire rocket kit can easily travel over 1 mile high!
These are the only end-burning composite propellant motors available.
Like a black powder end-burning motor, they produce an initial
high-thrust spike to get the rocket off the launch rod, and then they
have a long sustainer phase to push the rocket to high altitudes. Both
motors are available in delays of 4, 6, or 8 seconds.

NAR Certified.
U.S. Rockets makes several kits suited to these motors.

US Rockets has a G008 that puts both to shame.

I have received NUMEROUS emails on this. The F10 and E6 (I was the FIRST dealer) are NAR certified.
Yes errortech has changed from NV to TX to UT and, to Ellis-TX and to AT-UT and to RCS-UT, but until NAR changes the listing they are certified and the G008 (a vastly superior motor) is not.

Now if we could just get Tim to bring back those wonderful 10.5mm motors we'd be all set!

Merely offer him double the price. That's about what it would take.
And no whining.

I don't think cost was an issue. I don't think Tim liked making them (he did them himself, didn't he?).

David; Is US Rockets a brand name or a company?

I asked him why and he told me. I am assuming that was a private conversation.
I suggested a solution in public to the whole product line. Not sure if it is the ONLY solution but I am willing to bet.
Are you ready for a $5+ B? My kid is.

I think it had more to do with him being overextended trying to get the Saturn V and Saturn 1B kits out, and the relatively low demand (BTCs, mostly) for these motors.

Look on the bright side: that's just $2.31 per second of burn...

$20 Under 62.5g and last made in 1999. (CSFM permit)
Hundreds out there but a lot got flown this year due to increased awareness. You have to find a third party seller.
only about 93% reliable.
