I had a E12-6 with the Code as "D 19 6 19", used it on a "BlackStar Voyager" rocket. It just blew and damaged the rocket.

Reporting for other's awareness.

Have 3 more motors of the same kind, dont know what to do with those.

There is a thread with a list of suspect motors (https://www.rocketryforum.com/threads/suspected-bad-motor-list.150501/). The D 19 6 19 is on the list. Bring the motors to club launches. A number of people in the WSR club have rockets that can use these without being damaged even if they blow.

Contact Estes with the date code and how many motors you have as well as the rocket that was damaged. They should send you a replacement kit and some D12 motors. E12 motors must be shipped hazmat and Estes won't do that.

Also submit a failure report to the official site: http://motorcato.org/
