They worked great, however, I think they are a little too expensive.
Anthony C.
The product description and packaging states that these engines come with igniters and plugs, but they Did NOT come with the plugs.
Anne
We've already lost one rocket... They are great, though, and really thrilling to watch launch.

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 C6-5 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 approximate amount of time in seconds from ignition to when the engine expels the gas that expels the parachute. (The "7" denotes the delay factor).

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. You won't lose your rockets to wind drift as they won't go that high.

These are $6-8 at most places, go to ehobbies dot com and get them, or a whole flight pack (24 engines) for $43.

Get a 3-pack of C6-5's for $6 at WalMart, folks! Pay a little tax, but no shipping charge!

This worked great no problems. The new type igniters are much better than to older version.
They fit very snug into the engines.

These C engines pack a huge punch! Be sure you are ready for them! We've already lost one rocket... They are great, though, and really thrilling to watch launch.

If you really want to send your rockets up high, these do the trick. We were shooting rockets that with the A8-3 engines were rated to 1,600 feet, but with these they appeared to go as high, then continue on for quite a bit more. The distance was awesome! The only negative was predicting the landing zone was more complicated and we lost a couple of rockets to big trees that were pretty far away. Be ready!

They are exactly the same as the one sold as 3. Another plus is you won't have to buy more engines for a while.

i ordered a rocket for my nephew for his birthday and it just happened to be during my visit as well so i got to help with the rocket. all of this stuff really requires adult supervision for the most part, but i was really glad i got this extra pack of engines as one launch would not have been enough for any of us or the crowd we attracted.
