As I understand it the A10-3t has been out of production for over 3 years so it is no longer certified for NAR, or TRA launches. I have quite a few left, as well as some old Estes "Short" motors, I would like to see come back! Here is a link to the List of Certified motors.
Here is a list showing the decertification
Sorry I meant A10-0T, as we were talking boosters, thanks for the correction I do have a qhestion though. Where did you get the information of Feb 08, 2004 as the one file I found at the NAR S and T said " Decertified on 12/31/2003:Originally posted by Micromister
Just to correct your misunderstanding..A10-3T and A10-Pt motors are NAR contest certified.
A10-0T has a #3 notation which is not spelled out at this time, which means it isn't contest certified but is still perfectly fine at Nar sport launches. The latest update is listed as Feb. 08, 2004. so this is current information.

I see NO mention of A10-0T ....
Shockie your looking at the combined list last updated in January23, 2004
the Current NAR list, last updated Feb 08, 2004 still show the A10-0T with a #3 notation...what that means is unclear. but It is still listed. I never trust that combined list but than again I don't fly anything bigger than G anyway.
You can flyem...But, while it listed on their page, does that make it legal to fly at NAR launches?
Ask some of the sport flyers at the last three NARAM's. I have many people upset at me that I would not let them fly engines that they bought on the way to NARAM that were not on the current list.Originally posted by sandman
If Carl (SEMROC) is RSO he'll let ya fly it.
Won''t ya, Carl?
hey, I'll sign - this would be the first rules change that I (a new NAR member) understand!Originally posted by Micromister
... Maybe I'll throw it out here also as some kind of petition and see how many signatures I can gather
The Semroc Firefly uses the old "shortie" 18mm motors. It comes with 18mm adapters and recommends gluing the 13mm motors into them, but the A10-0T is pretty scarce these days. Even if I could find any, going through two adapters per flight (or even cut down expended 18mm motors) is less than ideal.Originally posted by MetMan
What do you mean by "cut down an 18mm B6-0 to use as a booster"?
