Estes could do a port-burning F as well with their 29mm case.
If Centuri/Coaster could make a 29mm F97 back in 1965, Estes surely could do it now with modern safer manufacturing techniques. For that matter, if an F97 was not a "high power" motor then, it should not be now.
Not doing so is nothing but BS excuses, especially the one of "the B14 won't sell".
We all know what excuses are like; we all have one and they all STINK.
The NFPA has no business defining what average thrust constitutes a HPR motor.

Technically with the Estes 29mm case they could do a core burning E as well. E40+

Not the F-it bucket, but the F-yeah! bucket! One day's run on the machines most likely would last 2-3 years.

The C11-0 is the one I use the most often, great for low altitude staging, especially 3 stagers. I fly a T-Bird clone built with a 24mm 1st stage, specifically for use with the C11-0. When I build a Farside-X, it'll be with a 24mm 1st stage. The C11-3 is particularly useful, less so the C11-5, and there's really no need for the C11-7.

I just wanted to reemphasise my own post for the new owners.

Estes used to inventory parts. Why not inventory much more profitable motors?

Default C11-x mailing campaign

At this point, all users should mail a post card (remember those) to Estes in CO asking for reinstatement of C11-x motors (all of the delays).

Now, another issue that may have to be looked into is that fact that Estes has fallen into the Hobby Lobby trap. Sell Hobby Lobby tailored rockets and motors. C11-x did not seem to fit this sales model and that may have contributed to the Hobbico decision to cease production.

I have a Renegade-D, converted back to the two stage with the idea of using the C-11-0 so count me in!

I did the same thing! I figure a c11-0 should have enough umph to get it going. Just a B in the upper stage.

I'm all for getting the C11's back.
