Cedar City, UT (ROL Newswire) -- The National Association of Rocketry's (NAR) Standards and Testing (S&T) Committee has certified two new AeroTech single-use rocket motors, the 29mm F42T Econojet and the29mm F26FJ standard line.
The F42T uses AeroTech's fast burning Blue Thunder propellant, and the F26FJ uses AeroTech's fast Black Jack propellant also known as Black Max.
The F26-6FJ and F42-4T will work with AeroTech's Initiator, HV Arcas, Strong Arm and Wart-Hog rocket kits. The F26-9FJ and F42-8T will work with the Mustang, Arreaux, IQSY Tomahawk, Cheetah and Barracuda kits.
Detailed product information can be found on the home page of the AeroTech website atInstructions for both motors may be downloaded in PDF format from the "Instructions" page of the AeroTech Resource Library.
The F42T and F26FJ are defined as "model rocket motors" and while no user certification is required, they are recommended for consumers 16 years of age or older.
The F42T can be shipped via U.S. Postal Service Parcel Post with no hazmat fee, due to the fact that the motors contain less than 30 grams of propellant each. AeroTech's dealers and distributors have been notified of the new motors' pending certification and production and motors should be available for purchase by consumers in mid-May.
