I saw a video of using spacing adapters for an AT 29mm case making a longer case use less grains.

Is the Cesaroni the same? Can I use two 24mm grains in a 6 grain 24mm tube?

Thanks!

No. Minimum is using a 4 grain CTI reload in a 6 grain motor.
ie. No more than 2 spacers in a motor tube at one time.
Cheers

So, if you get 3 grain, you can do 1, 2 or 3 grains. And you get a 6 grain, you can do 4, 5 or 6. Correct?

Thanks!

You got it :).

Just remember, if you have a 6XL case, you need the first spacer to be an XL type (makes it 5 grain) and the second (if used) is the standard size (to get 4 grain).

Yes 3 grain and 6 grain cases allow you to fly anything from 1 to 6 grains motors. But sometimes you still need more cases. Like when the 6 grain case doesn't fit because it's too long, but you want to use a 4 or 5 grain reload.

EXCELLENT! It's like a big explosion of alternatives! Got to start digging into more of this.

Piggy bank is empty, stays empty. Every week I put a little in, then go to Hobby Lobby, or Amazon or erockets or AC Supply... Just stopped by HL and got some decal paper and Scotch Magic Tape for masking.

Just a note, the 24mm cases do not have spacers, the cases are as cheap as spacers would be. 29 and up has spacers.

Meaning? A spacer cost as much a case?

If I bought a 24mm 3 grain case and needed a spacer, the spacer would cost as much as a 2 grain case?

Maybe that is the reason I have not seen any spacers for sale...

Or am I misunderstanding.

There are no 24mm CTI spacers.
RainWolf was just saying the 24mm cases are cheap
