What is the status of this company? Are they back up and running? I bought a full casing series back in 2012, but have yet to buy a motor.

I don't know what percentage of full production they are at, or any behind the scenes information, but people are still buying and flying their motors.

From looking at dealer sites it looks like dealers have a few in stocked but you have to call for most of em. May be a pre-order type thing. Don't really know. I've been looking into 75mm for a future project and CTI looks to be the cheapest and has more loads in the sizes I was wanting, but the lack of "available now" motors is off putting. They'll probably be up to speed before I reach that point though.

Stick around long enough, and you will use motors from various vendors. When Aerotech burned down in 2001, I started using CTI motors. When CTI did the same last year, I reverted back to my AT casings and loads.

Depends on what cases you have. 29, 38 and Pro 54, you may be limited to what's available.
If are looking to do a Level 3 cert or already have it, the 75mm Aerotech reloads are certified to use in the CTI cases.

Aerotech has the cheapest motors, hardware is a different story.
For the most part, which is any I have bookoos AT motors and only one CTI ,which I've never flown.
For the motors I was looking at that's not the case though. CTI 75mm 2 and 3 grain are cheaper than comparable Aerotech loads, 4 grain are neck and neck. Otherwise AT is cheaper though. But for those three cases, I'm leaning toward CTI, but it'll be a while.

Price really depends who you buy motors from. Know the right vendors and they'll usually deal with cash.

AMW has gotten plenty of reloads restocked. I believe Chris' Rocket Supplies has, too. I haven't talked to Ken Allen of Performance Hobbies in a while, but if everyone else has reloads, he's probably gotten his share of restock.

When I spoke with Ken 2 weeks ago at a launch, he indicated that he hadn't received anything yet and that they weren't taking orders. This, obviously, conflicts with what other vendors seem to be seeing, but maybe he's had some communication issues with CTI...

Bay Area Rocketry hasn't had any CTI 54mm reloads in a very long time. Owner says they can't find them anywhere.

I just got a pallet today, and got one right before Ldrs. Stock is very very limited, except lots of green loads(I have a bunch of H159G).

Christopher, I just visit your site, well done, I really like when someone show the inventory quantity. The main AT dealer do the same in Canada, no surprise when we order.

I ordered a CTI M2020I to fly a LDRS 36 from Wildman, a few months before the launch. A few weeks before LDRS, Tim advised me CTI was not shipping large motors, so I changed the order to an AT M1850W.
The Wildman site still doesn't have the M2020I in stock.
