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:
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.More info....
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).
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.
