Hi all, I'm looking to sell some of the following RMS reloads for AT, AMW, and Loki. I will have them for sale at MDRA each month (this sunday and either Saturday or Sunday each month depending on request). I may also have them at BARC and METRA upon request. I will have them at AIRFEST, BALLS, and MWP assuming I attend, which I plan, and there are people interested. I'll be hanging under my tent with a sign. I'm willing to provide loaner cases at no cost for Loki and AMW and if it CATOs you don't owe anything but if you lose it you replace it. Here's what I've got followed by quantity. All are in original sealed packaging.

Hi all, I woke up to an onslaught of PMs for these. I'm away all day and it's impossible for me to respond to all, I will respond to MDRA ones and will respond to the rest in order received late tonight/tomorrow. Btw, why is AMW so popular? I've gotten more requests for them then anything else and I expected the opposite, that's why I'm offering a free loaner case bc I didn't expect many to even have the hardware. Were they big some years ago and then stopped making motors? They seemed to have partnered in some sense with CTI and I am unable to find any hints that AMW still sells motors. Thanks!

AMW essentially stopped when Paul Robinson passed away. He made some really excellent motors. If you liked sparky motors his were the best. He was a good guy and a benefit to the hobby, and he is missed.

At the Mini Midwest Power, year before last I believe a fellow launched an AMW M sparky that was one of the last impressive commercial sparkies that came out by Mr. Holmes. It was said the titanium batch that was used can't be purchased and reproduced.
I was impressed but have not witnessed all that many sparkies to compare it to but I'm told by aficionados that AMW sparkies, specifically the M motor was one of the best ever made. Some might say the standard that "newer" sparkies should be
measured against. Kurt

An original AMW M Skid is THE benchmark. Closest I have seen is some of the Loki stuff and they are a warm second place. You did not see or hear them so much as feel them. The CTI variants pale by comparison.

The J230 He has listed is stunning for its size.

The AMW M2200 was awesome to behold. However, there's a new sparky motor out there that rivals it or is darn close. Preston Nobile's sparky motors are the next best thing. If given the opportunity, you must see one of his sparky motors in person.

+1 to Preston's sparky.

All AMWs have been sold to the first person who messaged me. Is Preston's formula public? I keep hearing about it from various people outside of this forum even.

Preston's formulas are not public, but if you come to a Tripoli Wisconsin launch, you'll see some awesomeness (and swamp!)

If you guys hold him down. I'll get the formulae out of him with a high wattage laser. (Hey-it almost worked on James Bond. eh?)

(btw-there is an ugly rumour of CPSC making a run at aluminium powders-just a heads up!)

What's the closest small airport to your launch site? I would love to come to a launch other than (in addition to) MWP. Anyone wanna trade a ride for an I200?
