Any chance of a 54/1706 New Blue Thunder? It's my favorite propellant (beautiful flame, incredible performance) and I think it could kick some butt in that case.
It’s a good question, I’ve noticed that myself and have wondered if it was dependent on the ambient atmospheric conditions. I have no other explanation at this time.I flew an N2220DM at LDRS. While it was great, it wasn't quite as loud/crackly as some others I have seen and this is consistent throughout Dark Matter loads. About 3/4 of the way through the burn it looks like a lot of the metals were slagged up on the inside of the nozzle and it spits it all out at once.
I'm not complaining, just genuinely curious if there's any insight as to where the variation in the sound comes from. Just the luck of the draw on how much of the metal makes it out at what point throughout the burn?
K1100T and K2050ST... What is New Blue Thunder?
Try the K1103X. 400 free extra N-s also for the 54/1706. Same price as a K1100 but not a blue flame. Super Thunder burns about as fast as CTI V-Max (K2045).I like the K1100T exactly as it is...probably my favorite commercial motor ever. Don't change it!
Ironic. I bought a 2002 Pontiac Grand Pre about 3 years ago for around 1,700. Lasted me 2 years and then the tranny went out at about 185,000. Dealer gave me 1,100 for the trade in towards my current vehicle.20 years ago we purchased a brand new Pontiac Grand Pre for 14k.
I have suggested this to Gary a couple times in private chat . I told him I have a rocket that would be perfect to demo such a motor at a Red Glare or up near Buffalo.On the subject of Dm loads , can we get a 98mm 4 grain load ?
The original official crossload chart included those motors, future crossload charts did not. Apparently they were never certified.Are Aerotech 75/6400 and 75/7680 reloads no longer (or were they ever) crossroad certified for CTI hardware? I was reading old threads from 2017 after they were introduced and someone posted a crossroad matrix that included 5 and 6 grain motors. However the matrix on the Aerotech website only lists motors up to 75/5120. Is this the most up to date list to reference?
Cool, thanks for the info. I'd love to fly 5 and 6 grain stuff in my CTI hardware, but the 4 grain stuff should still be great as well.The original official crossload chart included those motors, future crossload charts did not. Apparently they were never certified.
It's worth to get the stainless disk if you ever plan on flying any of the motors that require it. My logic is buy once cry once and then you don't have to worry about it. Only downside is that it's quite a bit heavier if that matters to youCool, thanks for the info.

Looks like I'll need to purchase a forward seal disk, for those who have used them, is it worth spending the extra $20 to get the stainless steel one? Is it easier to clean? The only other Aerotech stuff I've previously flown was 38 MM and besides some anodizing fading, the aluminum seal disk in that case seems to be doing fine...
