Cert letter for new Quest F41 Engines was created by TimDawson
Attached is a copy of the Certification letter from Tripoli for the new Quest F41 engines, which should be showing up soon, I hope.  Average thrust is 8.89 lbf compared to Estes F15 which has an Avg Thrust of 3.26.

Thanks for the update. I guess now we have to wait until the NAR certifies them.
What Aerotech single use engine would you say is somewhat compatible to the F41? I use E20's and E30's on a regular basis.

The F41 has the same form-factor as the Estes E12.

From the NAR website:

As a service to NAR members, the NAR Standards and Testing Committee (S&T) publishes a list of all rocket motors certified for use at NAR launches. As the NAR, the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA), and the Canadian Association of Rocketry (CAR) maintain a reciprocal certification policy, motors certified by all organizations are included in this list. Members of all organizations may use motors certified by any organization as long as the motor has been approved for transportation in your country (DOT certification in the USA).

What does it mean that:
1) AeroTech does not list this motor on their website?
2) I can't find an online vendor selling it?

Also: Tim, how did you get the cert letter?

They haven't started selling them to the public yet.  There was an advertisement on the back of the March/April 2022 NAR Sport Rocketry that said they would be available in the spring of 2022, but we are still waiting.  E-Rockets promised they would have them as soon as they become available.  I've been checking the Quest/AeroTech website once or twice a week for the last month or so, waiting.

I got the cert letter from ThrustCurve.Org
