I hope this is the place for this inquiry. The local hobby shop in my area can not seem to be able to get rocket motors. What can be shipped now in mostly the Estes lines and what are the HAZMAT requirements/fees. Also which carriers can ship motors. I would like to help get him started in selling rocket supplies and kits. He mostly sells radio control stuff and some plane fuel and kits now. Any information would be appreciated. His suppliers send him rocket kits but not motors. Thankx:)
dunno who his suppliers are but it seems strange they wouldn't ship hobby motors. anyways, the two big US hobby distributors are "Great Planes" and "Horizon" and both ship rocket motors.
