Assuming. If you want to risk some of your modrocs, be my guest. I look at the guy/gal's other listings and might not be aware of shipping requirements.How do you know the seller doesn't have proper hazmat creds? Or are you just assuming?
Wow! Those are some motors I've never heard of.Assuming. If you want to risk some of your modrocs, be my guest. I look at the guy/gal's other listings and might not be aware of shipping requirements.
Andrew, I have some batches going back to the mid-1960's and wouldn't consider attempting to launch them. They have the old English classification as
opposed the the Newtonian classification that occurred in the late '60's. B8-6, B8-0 or 1/2A8-2 anyone? Even have a few of the "shorty" 18mm motors of yore.
From ebay guideline and policies:I'm pretty sure eBay prohibits selling of motors on their site? So I would expect this to be taken down before the auction is completed.
so i guess according to him they arent in bad condition.ebay seller said:
These are various unused Estes rocket engines. There is a total of 36 there and range in widely in sizes (see pictures for engine sizes). These are very old engines so no guarantees on there performance. Also included are the old boxes some of them had in them. They have never been wet and were stored in a dry location, i have launched some of the a8's and they worked fine.
I notice that you are from "somewhere in Ohio" and the ebay seller is from Sylvania, Ohio. If you are interested and close, send him a private message indicating you'd be willing to come pick them up. Ebay makes it very difficult for you to send your email address to another ebay member so you will have to camouflage your email address.Aw, it's VERY tempting!
Exactly, Those old Estes motors motors I commented above in post #7 I know have been temp cycled many times and only have them for sentimental reasons. I sure as heck wouldn't attempt to fly them.Anyone who bids of 40+ year old black powder motors for any purpose other than collecting is an out-and-out fool. Look at the crushed, torn, and raggedy packaging. Not even worth collecting due to the packaging conditions.
