I love C11-0s and used one in the only flight so far of my Farside-X, but $60 for 3 shipped?

AC Supply has them for $4.79 for a two pack. Get 4 motors for $9.58, plus about $10 for shipping, unless you’re a tightwad like me, and spend the $100 with AC Supply to get free shipping.

Who buys these overpriced motors anyway?

Only Idiots, Morons, and Imbeciles...and those are legitimate clinical terms that should STILL be in usage TODAY.

I see that more as intelligent financial planning than being a tightwad.

Scott-
You are correct, but I'm not in the market for anything this big.
Makes no mention of any stupid certification either, which is the way it SHOULD BE FOR ALL HOBBY ROCKETRY.

Not even an Orville Carlisle handmade original 13 mm motor would bring anything close to a third that price. Lots and lots of original Mabel motors, just like the one being offered, out there. Even I have one, signed by Vern. I guess that makes mine worth millions.

This ebay lister says he has a thousand items he is going to be listing but if the prices on his first five items are any indication, he's going to be sitting with his thousand items for a LONG time (forever).

Did anyone scroll down on that item?

In the description there is a picture of and description of an Estes Bullpup with a price of $62.19

That is an odd AND exobinate price. And like a sucker I've been selling them for a whole bunch less.

But it has free shipping.
