My mom just sent me a message asking if these motors will work in my sons rockets...no they are to small ;-)

I was shocked to see that they have reduced the motors per pack .

She said it's a great deal buy one ($8.99 ) get one 1/2 off ... 😳

Yeah I saw those packs at a local Fred Meyer. At least they come with wadding I guess. Definitely marketed to the "toy" aspect of sales.

I assume that they are trying to keep the cost per pack "low". They did this with D motors a few yeas ago.

$4.50/ea for C6? Sheesh... I might have to start making 18/24mm AP sticks.

The packages with 2 are called Tupacs. The ones with 3 are Biggies.

But even more importantly, Estes redesigned the packaging, for the first time in about 4 decades...

Looks like the same blister pack, not nearly as cool as the old blue diamond tubes or as useful as the ancient blue mailing tubes.

I remember reading in another thread that Estes is doing 2 packs for major stores (Walmart, etc.) as toys but keeping the traditional 3 packs on their site and probably in hobby stores too.
