    I am really open to single use - provided they weigh a good bit less than the RMS loads + cases - and that I can get them without paying the crazy Haz shipping fee :)
    Balsa machining service carries a ton if the single use Aerotech stuff but weights are not listed.
    The Single use G74 2 pack for $30 is way doable - but I need to find the weight of the motors :)

    I do need the motor to be as long as the RMS though as I have no motor tubes in the design - many of the single use guys are only 83mm long

    Can you glue some 1/4 inch balsa strips in to act as a motor mount of sorts ? 4 every 90 degress should be more then strong enough .

    I ordered up a pair of F42s - I will post up the final "on the pad weight" once they arrive - and any motor tube mods I needed to make, (if necessary).
    and of course - flight video when I get a chance to get out to C.R.A.S.H this summer. Traipsing through the field in the snow / mud is not my idea of a fun launch :)
