mtnmanak,Okay, you guys have convinced me Going to invest some money in Loki hardware and try them out!
As I look through their hardware, it is a bit more confusing than AT. Looks like you need different nozzles for different loads?
Thank you so much for posting that Tom.Not so much, other than the odd load here and there. In 38s you ONLY need the additional #16 if you fly the I110 in the 480 case or the #26 if you fly the J474 in the 740 case.
Other than that, all the commercial loads use the nozzle that the case comes with 'standard'. Just add an igniter, some grease for the o-rings, snap ring pliers, and go launch!
Other than that:
38-120 does G motors
38-240 does H
38-480 does I
38-740 does small and mid J
38-1200 does mid J and up
54-1200 does small and mid J
54-2000 does a variety of K
54-2800 does the rest of the K and some L
54-4000 does big L and M
Hi Teddy, will definitely take you up on that. Looks like you are right down the road from me - I am in Jersey City. Especially for any hazmat loads, would love to figure out a way to get local so I can avoid the shipping costs, thanks!mtnmanak,
Let me know if there's anything Loki you'd like..
I am a full line Loki distributor and stock the catalog cover to cover..
I pride myself on never being out of stock on anything,
it has happened, but rarely, and when it does I consider that a mistake on my part..
Thank you so much for posting that Tom.
When you lay it out it really isn't very complex or confusing at all..
I'd like to add two points.
1-- The K 627 Red in the 38 / 1200 case..
2-- When a load for a particular case doesn't use that cases "standard" nozzle,
2 out of the 3 examples of this use the nozzle from the next case, if you had both cases, you'd have the correct nozzle anyway..
The one that doesn't is the K 627 Red in the 38 / 1200 case and it uses a #25 nozzle..
I like to by my AT motors on sale. Is there any place that ever sells Loki motors for 25% off?AT I600 = $70 .. 640 NS or $0.11 / NS
LOKI J712 = $74 .. 700 NS or $0.11 / NS

Not exactly a true 1:1 comparison but I think if you do this sort of thing you'll find that Loki is fairly comparable. And as others have said, the only drawback to Loki reloads is they do not come with starters.
I'd like to know this as well. The comparison posted uses retail price for both manufacturers. I have never paid retail price for an Aerotech reload. I'm very interested in what Loki has to offer but I'd like to know the real costs. Hazmat free on most 38mm motors is intriguing but I don't pay hazmat on Aerotech reloads if I use my local vendor and I'm paying below retail.I like to by my AT motors on sale. Is there any place that ever sells Loki motors for 25% off?
In several years I've never seen a sale specific to Loki. A vendor may have a sale that covers all their inventory but I don't think you'll see a sale just on Loki. Also, all vendors I've seen that carry Loki have the same prices so it might be part of a vendor agreement or something like that.
If you're in Jersey City you are local to me..Hi Teddy, will definitely take you up on that. Looks like you are right down the road from me - I am in Jersey City. Especially for any hazmat loads, would love to figure out a way to get local so I can avoid the shipping costs, thanks!
Whatever you're doing, keep it up - outstanding photos.Thanks, It took me a long time and a lot of practice to get the photography right. The rockets are so darn fast off of the pad. Unfortunately the forum can‘t accept full resolution photographs. The actual photos have much better resolution. You can read every decal.
aAll the best,
Ha,those were some good days
Ohh man,very cool and, oh yes! Been to many an NHRA race there. My now wife had her first taste of nitro at the 2006 Super Nationals
