Hello everyone! Getting back into rockets after a 35 year hiatus. I just bought a starter set with an Alpha III and completed it in 2 days. I installed an A8-3 motor in it and the motor slides fore and aft approximately 3/32” very loosely. Shouldn’t this be a snug fit? And if not, how much play is considered safe? If I shake the rocket in my hand, you can hear the motor clanking as it slides up and down within the engine hook. My concern is it slamming up and down during launch and ejection and wearing out the motor mount.Thoughts???
