Let's Make A Deal was created by deangelo54
Last year, Estes sent me a 2 pack of E16-6 engines to replace a pack I had an issue with. I was hoping to get E16-4's but all they had available at the time was the 6 second delay. I don't have anything I can fly with the 6 second delay.

The engines are still in the package. If someone would like to trade for them, I will accept any reasonable or even an unreasonable offer.
For Example:
Two or even one C11-3 or C11-5.
Nearly any other engine combination.
A BT 55 NC.
Any rocket parts.
A can of spray paint and it does not have to be new.
Dog barf.
A hot dog, drink and chips when we have food service again.

See you all in Amesbury,
Frank D

I'd be interested. I'll bring some extra motors with me on Saturday and I'm sure we can make a trade.

What ever you propose, the answer is yes.

While I think of it, does anyone have a Mylar chute for sale or trade? The one that came with my Satellite Drone separated and drifted to oblivion. The kit weighs 1.6 ounces.

If you want to make your own Mylar chute, grab some string and a space/survival blanket. They are Mylar.

The kit is the one that Kenn gave me. It is a very unique kit that was in the package for many years. I feel like it would be blasphemy to use an Estes plastic chute. The chute it came with was 18", seems a bit large for a 1.6 ounce kit.

The smallest motor listed on the package is a B4-4. From looking at the AC Supply catalog, a rocket that size should be able to fly on an A8-3.

I would not want to lose or damage this kit. I have elevated it to the special category within my fleet.

Yes Frank, it'll fly fine on an A8-3. I have one that has flown a few times on A8-3's with no issues.
Let me look around, I may have a 'chute or two for you.
