Single Use Motors
AeroTech established its position as the leader in hobby rocket motor technology with its single-use composite motors. Hobby rocketry has come to depend on AeroTech single-use motors for sport and competition flying.
AeroTech’s single-use composite model rocket motors are offered in over 50 different combinations of physical size, power, burn time, propellant type and delay length. All AeroTech single-use rocket motors have been certified by the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) or the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA).
In 1997, AeroTech introduced the “Econojet” line of single-use motors. AeroTech combined features of performance, design and packaging in the Econojets to create a line of motors that could be sold at a price point midway between its traditional single-use motors and RMS reload kits.
In 2003, AeroTech revolutionized single-use motor design with a one-piece molded case/nozzle unit and matching molded bulkhead with a threaded joint that was first used in the F20W Econojet. Since then, the new configuration has found its way into all 29mm AeroTech single-use motors.
With a propellant weight of 30 grams or less, The D21T, E15W, E30T, F20W, F23FJ, F27R and F42T motors may be shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS) Parcel Post without incurring a "hazmat" charge.
In 2006, AeroTech re-introduced the K250PW as its first Loadable Motor System™ (LMS™) motor. The LMS is a single-use motor in kit form that is assembled by the user. The K250PW utilizes a disposable aluminum casing and internal components and reusable RMS end closures. The LMS concept was subsequently expanded into the model rocket line of motors between 2006 and 2007 with the F20W/L, F23FJ/L. F27R/L, F42T/L, G77R/L and the G79W/L. All the model rocket LMS kits, including the G77R/L and the G79W/L, use all-disposable components and may also be shipped via USPS Parcel Post without incurring a hazmat fee.
