    Yes i did a search and couldn’t find it.
    Anybody know the weight of the 13-18 mm adapters?
    Would also be interested in the 18-24
    Do they make a 24 to 29?

    Thanks

    Has anyone tried the adapters on booster stages? Do the adapters get fried by the sustainer jet?
    Am thinking the A10-0T would make a nice middle booster motor on a three stage 18mm bird.

    Yup, tried it with an 18/24 adapter in the prefab Estes booster unit under an E2X Rookie just to see what would happen - the adapter got a little more scorching than they typically get but not an excessive amount.

    Wasn’t a great flight - the 18mm C6-0 worked ok but not nearly as well as the 24mm C11-0! The shorter, harder “hit” of the C11 worked better than the longer burn of the C6.

    The 24/29 is especially nice, since it supports the 24/40 RMS case. Works with the Estes & AT screw on retainers, and easy to friction fit.
