It's a very good start. Looks like you're using the same site template as Estes.

I'll offer the same comments as I gave Estes when they unveiled their new site: need more useful filters. The only filter on rocket kits right now is by price, which is not typically how people search for rockets.

Useful filters:
• Skill level
• Motor mount size
• multi-stage
• cluster
• scale
Etc. You don't need all of them but having a few would be mighty nice.

Similar considerations for motor searching: diameter, reloads/single use, etc.

Also, when I searched for LEO Space Train, I got this sort of broken page: https://www.the-rocket-store.com/?s=leo+space+train

When navigating the Shop menu for motors, I get this:

In addition to the weirdness that the submenus open to the left (applies to Rockets as well), "MOTORS AEROTECH" should presumably just be "AEROTECH".

But again, a very good start. Good luck with it!

I clicked on Rocket Motors - Cesaroni, but didn't see any motors listed. Are you going to be a CTI dealer?

Fantastic suggestions - will be implemented. With regards to https://www.the-rocket-store.com/?s=leo+space+train, if you then click on the name, the rocket pops up. Awkward

Definitely low prices. Good luck. Would be nice if the motors, kits, and accessories were separated. Best price on the O5280 I’ve seen yet.

Two more questions:

I happen to be not very far from Allentown, would you have a local pick up option (to avoid HAZMAT?). Also, are you going to be offering your own rocket designs? (I see The-Rocket-Store as a listing under Rockets) And I'll second neil_w's suggestion of motor filters, especially for motors. Such as diameter, impuse class, SU vs reload, etc....

Agreed Completely, already working on the correct image for each Aerotech Motor.

Hazmat Sucks - Of course. I will have a couple of my own designs for sale as kits - Mine focus on the 29mm motor and as many electronics as you can stuff in.

More:
1. Nowhere on the site does it talk about shipping charges. I went through the first screen of purchasing and it sent me to Paypal without telling me anything about shipping. I stopped there because I didn't know if I was going to have to complete a transaction before I learned the answer.
2. I looked up the Aerotech E15, and the product information did not say anything about how many were in the pack (may or may not be true of other motors as well). Presumably it's a 3-pack, should state that clearly on the product page.
3. The logo looks a bit fuzzy, and a bit dingy. Here it is on the site:

And here is just the image opened up in a separate tab:

Note how much better it looks. Problem seems to be the resizing on the site, plus the slightly lighter background gives the whole thing a bit less contrast.

Also an "About us" section" would be nice.
Allays wary shoppers.

Regarding the motors, they all need to be cleared up in description, clarified - I agree, and It was something I've known. I forgot to to discuss shipping on the site. I'm selling rocket motors, and I forgot to explain shipping. Jeez. Thank You!
