Sale! Sale! Sale! was created by ClaudeMaina
I was contacted by a would-be rocketeer in Amesbury. He purchased a few items intending to start the hobby but never did, and asked if he could donate them to CMASS. I said 'yes'! The items are below along with an asking price (or best offer). All proceeds will go to the Spadafora Memorial Fund.

Aerotech Initiator Starter Set: The rocket is built and from what I can tell is built well. Not all of the decals have been applied but I think they are all there. Parachute and 29/24 mm adapter are included. The launch stand has not been assembled and parts are still sealed in their plastic bags. $140

Aerotech 29/40-120 motor casing and closures. This appears to never have been used and is in excellent shape. $40

Aerotech motors: ($20 for all four)
RMS F40-4W (2)
RMS E16-4W (1)
Single Use E30-4T (1)

All items are about 10 years old and have been stored in a garage. I'd like to sell the Initiator Starter Set as a set, but will entertain offers to split it. Reply here if you are interested and I will also bring them to our next launch on Nov 21. So people can look at them then.

Thanks.

Hi Claude,

I'll take the DMS and RMS motors and the casing.

Three years ago I purchased a pre-owned and pre-flown Initiator. It is a very nice kit. Wicked fun to fly. What I like about it is that since it is so durable, it comes with a 18" nylon parachute and does not drift very far and no damage on landing. I ripped out that metal gizmo that looks like a Brillo pad that is supposed to protect the chute from the ejection charge. I was told by a Initiator owner that it eventually clogs up and blocks the ejection charge.

I remember reading a review awhile back of the launch stand. I don't remember the specifics but overall it was a positive review.

If I was related to Curtis, I would say that there are not enough Initiators in the world and buy it myself. As much as I am tempted, I'll leave it for someone else to enjoy.

This is just a quick bump on the thread.

The Initiator Starter Set is still available and I'll have it with me at the launch this Saturday - if we have one. Again, I'd like to sell it as a set but will split if someone is interested. And all proceeds go to the Bill Spadafora Memorial Fund.

Thanks.

Claude
