Aerotech is one of the oldest manufacturers of Composite-Propellant rocket engines in the world. Apogee Components is one of their oldest customers, because we like their products. They push your rockets high into the sky with a variety of different formulations of propellants. They offer both single-use motors, which you use once and discard, and reloadable motors, which can be used again and again. If in doubt about which one to use, please give us a call here at Apogee Components.
Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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: How is maximum lift-off weight determined?
A: The maximum recommended lift-off weight for each delay depends on the size of the rocket, its drag coefficient, launch angle, and the wind conditions at launch. We recommend running a RockSim computer simulation for each rocket design and launch conditions to select the proper motor delay. For help selecting the correct delay time, see Apogee Technical Publication #28. For additional information on maximum lift-off weight, see our FREE newsletter article on this subject.

Q: I had a motor CATO with my Aerotech motor, and I would like to submit a warranty claim. What do I need to do?
A: Aerotech handles warranty claims directly. Please see their warranty page for their policies and instructions.
Q: I need help selecting motors. What should I do? Can you teach me how to select them myself?
A: Watch this YouTube video - How to Select Model Rocket Engines
