Has anyone ever had any Estes A10-3T engines with the nozzle opening off center? I just bought a pack and even my wife says they are a little off enter. I have been using T engines for years, but I have never seen this before.

Now don't get me wrong it ain't much just a smidgeon.

Its pretty normal to have slightly off center nozzles. As long as its not to bad your rocket flight will be fine.

No doubt true, but actually I have never noticed anything but dead-centered nozzle openings in any mini motors that I have ever used.

1) Photos from different angles are needed.

2) If confirmed (and not a lighting or edge-of-casing-is-rolled-over-a-bit issue), then you need to contact Estes directly. They may send you proper shipping materials to have them returned for quality control analysis.
