Has anyone done business with LEARNING THINGS . com. They have some good prices on ESTES rocket kits and supplies.
Hobbylinc.com has been my regular source Aerotech E, F, & G motors for the past few years.......G64 @ 8.99!! E18 @ 15.29 (3-pak of reloads)
http://www.hobbylinc.com/prods/tc_3.htm Beats Tower by 1.50. Estes is slightly cheaper than Tower.
I get my best prices on Estes (though somewhat limited selection) at Michael's (arts & crafts) using a 40% or 50% off coupon from Michael's, AC Moore, or even JoAnne's Fabrics. Those of you in Hobby Lobby country prolly do the same.
Also, Hobbylinc.com gives free shipping over 250.00. Not planning to drop that much? Tell a couple rocket buddies you're ordering & tell 'em some prices. Pitch in & everybody gets a deal & free shipping. A couple of us ordered discounted Dremel accessories & LOC body tubes last week to make the free shipping minimum.
And generally everything's instock........no out of stock or backordering routine usually.
DISCLAIMER...I'm not affiliated with hobbylinc, other than being a satisfied customer.......just a fellow rocketeer trying to hip you to a good thing.

Hobbylinc has some stuff cheaper than valuerockets.For AP (composite reloads) I'd highly recommend buying straight from the source; Aerotech at valuerockets.com. Why pay marked up distributor prices? Eliminate the middle-man and go straight to Gary Rosenfield, who produces the stuff.
AK, even though valuerockets.com IS Aerotech, they offer a only very limited selection D, E, & F motors. That being said though, I must confess that I did order some E15s (was happy with the price & that they had 'em) & got a new 24mm reload hardware & dropped just over $100, to get free shipping. A couple weeks later, I rounded up my rocket "shopping buddies" & we got plenty more motors from Hobbylinc (& got over $250 worth for free shipping).
I thought valuerockets purpose was to offer an affordable introduction to composite motors & then once they're hooked, they'll go on to buy plenty more other AT motors.

They have some Estes that are 50 to 70% off. I am thinking about a Rubicon for around $16 and free shipping over $25.:cyclops:
