Estes is the company that began model rocketry back in the 1960's. They have designed solid-fuel engines that are reliable and easy to use. The engines (motors) are simply standardized cylinders filled with varying amounts of solid rocket propellant.
Each rocket engine is characterized by a number on the engine. For example, in the C6-7 engine, the "C" stands for total impulse power (measured in Newton/seconds). There are Estes engines in size A, B, C, D, and E. A, B, and C engines are all of the same size and can for the most part be used in all standard model rockets. "D" engines are larger and wider and cannot be used in standard model rockets. "E" engines are the largest engines Estes produces and are available only to those over the age of 18. They are used to launch much larger and heavier rockets.
The important thing to know is that as you advance from one letter to the next, the thrust increases by 2 power. So a "B" engine is twice as powerful as an "A" engine. A "C" engine is twice as powerful as a "B", and so on.
The next number refers to the thrust power. The higher the number, the higher the thrust and the faster the rocket will go.
The final number is the time delay factor. In the C6-7, the 7 refers to the amount of time in seconds that the rocket engine will take to burn its fuel and expel the parachute.
Rocket engines should be selected according to the size of a rocket, the weight of the rocket, and the amount of land area you launch in. If you have a very small recovery field, then stick to smaller engines, such as A's and B's.Read more ›
Pack contained everything needed to launch your rocket. Engine, wadding, igniters & igniter plugs.
You may or may not know, most rockets can be launched with the A, B or C series engines (each next letter is twice as powerful as the prior) D and E engines are for MUCH larger rockets.
The A engines are pretty wimpish, all right for a windy day or a limited space area. The B engines are pretty decent.
The C engines... holy crap!!! WAAAYYYYYY up!!! Have LOTS of room.
Got this & a couple of rockets for my kids for Christmas & they loved it. Great show of propulsion, trajectory, wind effect, etc...
This kit saves money and works well, especially if you have several different sizes of rockets.
Note - No '-0' engines for multi stage kits
