Rocket Motors

The rocket motor is the device in the model that creates the thrust force that propels the rocket into the air. They create the fire, smoke, and noise that make rocketry so exciting to watch.

On this page you will find links to the various rocket motors that we recommend in our kits. There are so many types of motors because there are so many styles of rocket kits. The motor you will select is based on a variety of factors, including:

  • The size of the rocket.
  • How heavy it is.
  • How fast you want it to fly.
  • How high you want it to go.

But don't feel overwhelmed. We are here to help you. And you will find that each kit has "recommended" motors. Use those motors as a guide in making your selection. But if you need additional help, just give us a call at: (719) 535-9335, or send us an email by clicking on the email link to the right.

Apogee Motors Apogee's Medalist Motors
These are composite propellant rocket motors designed for high-performance rockets. The F10, with its 8 second burn time is the longest burning rocket motor on the planet. It will blow your mind. Click the more info button for additional details.
Quest Motors Quest Motors
Quest makes a great alternative motor to that from Estes. We carry the "regular-size" A, B, and C which will fit in most all your small model rockets. Click on "more info" button to learn more about the motors and to place your order.
Estes Motors Estes Motors
We offer a small selection of Estes motors, in the sizes that Quest does not make. By clicking on the "more info" button, you'll find detailed information about the 13mm diameter "mini-size" engines, and the 24mm diameter D12 engines that are good for lifting heavier rockets into the air.
Econojet Motors Aerotech SU & Econojet Motors
The single-use Aerotech and Econojet are mid-power size engines, which means they are bigger than the Estes D engines that are commonly known by experienced modelers. We carry the E and the F size single-use motors.
Cesaroni Motors Cesaroni Reloadable Propellant Kits
Cesaroni (also known as CTI) is a manufacture of reloadable rocket motors. These motors are made in the standard diameters, so they will fit into your current fleet of rockets without having to do any further modifications.

24mm, 29mm, 38mm, 54mm
Cesaroni Casings Cesaroni Reloadable Propellant Casings
Cesaroni (also known as CTI) is a manufacture of reloadable rocket motors. These motors are made in the standard diameters, so they will fit into your current fleet of rockets without having to do any further modifications.

24mm, 29mm, 38mm, 54mm
Aerotech Motors Aerotech Reloadable Propellant Kits

Aerotech provides special propellant kits that can be used in reloadable motors. The advantage is that you save money because are cheap compared to single-use motors. The more times you fly, the more money you'll save. We have propellant kits for "E"-size motors up through "J"-size.

Rouse-Tech Motors Rouse-Tech Reloadable Cases

ROUSE-TECH manufactures the metal cases (called reload hardware) into which you install the Aerotech Propellant kits. They are specially designed for ease of use, durability, and they are fully compatible with the Aerotech reload kits. We have case sizes that will work with "E"-size motors up through "N"-size.


Additional Information About Rocket Motors

Here are some links to articles that are here on the Apogee web site that contain information about selecting and using rocket motors. Just because there is a lot of information to absorb, don't feel overwhelmed.

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: Can you ship this item to me by this weekend?
A: All motors (including kits that contain rocket motors) must be shipped by surface transportation (truck). While we usually ship this item the same day the order comes in, you should plan extra time for the postal service to deliver them via third class mail (Parcel Select).

To expedite your order, you can request that the order be split, and the motors ship separately from the rest. This will incur a fee of $6 for standard motor shipping (not hazmat) to cover the additional cost of two shipments.

Q: Why don't you ship rocket motors to countries outside the USA?
A: There are too many shipping regulations. We're a small company, and we don't have the manpower to track the regulations for each country in the world. So to keep our prices as low as possible, we only ship to USA customers.
