Default i dont do cos

Never knew much about the widow makers other than hearing the name. I am going to guess that the nitrocelulose was used as a binder? If so PBAN is a lot more efficent. Been 25 years since I cooked slury. Forgoten a LOT of it.

Thanks for posting the video, Leo. Those motors were very impressive. I hope they become available, somehow, here in the states.

The motors have been designed so that the "regular" engines fall below hazmet requirements which gives hope that the US market would be a target.

Default So much for keeping this project "Top Secret"...

The new Klima line of motors will distributed exclusively by Quest Aerospace in North America (USA and Canada).

Details on pricing and availablity are still aways off.

They will be stagable (and include booster motors) and will be available in retail stores. Of course, they will include Q2G2 igniters!

Follow the leaks from Germany, because there won't be alot of information published by Quest until we are finished with DOT EX Numbers and NAR/CAR Testing.

That's great news, Bill!

A D12-0 to F-long burner sustainer would be a nice combination.

Sir,

"So much for keeping this project "Top Secret"... "

You spilled the beans There was only speculation that a US company would be in on for the ride and no names were mentioned.

As for German / European concerns the "secret" was out long ago that new motors were needed.
It is vital to our hobby in Germany that alternative motors be made available by the beginning of 2012 as our current German source will stop production, if not already. Estes engines are not a real alternativ as they are too expensive.

BAM Germany are certifying the new motors at present.

Those are not secrets.

I'm thrilled that Quest has a major role because this is good news for everyone all over and I can't wait to fly my rockets with these new engines

Fair enough. What are the general dimensions, thrust curve shapes, average thrust and delays, anyway? About.
