I just bought a pair of the new-style G80s with the yellow end-caps. It looks like they will be much better than the old ones in keeping the BP in the motor. Doug and a few others wanted pics, so here they are!

My G-Force wants a 24-pound kick-in-the-butt when I get it fixed .

These motors are sweet kinda like the F20 but the F has a hexnut style cap.

You should get one! They cost a ton ($18-$20), but I believe that they are worth it.

Are any of those G80W's out anymore?

#### solrules

I have seen them fly...but not for sale. Thoes FWL's are norotious (sp?) for chuffing on ignition. Hehe....I still have a nice G80T that I got for $10 about 5 months back.... #### Initiator001 ##### Well-Known Member Neil, Do these new G80s use a one piece molded casing similar to the new version of the F20? #### Ryan S. ##### Well-Known Member Originally posted by Neil You should get one!

Ill have a look at them to see if there is a noticable difference... #### Initiator001 ##### Well-Known Member Originally posted by Neil I dunno... How would one tell? Ill have a look at them to see if there is a noticable difference... If you look at the aft/nozzle end of the motor, does it appear that the nozzle and casing are molded as one piece or does there appear to be a seam which would indicate a seperate nozzle & casing? Compare the G80 with the aft end of a 'new' F20 motor. That should show the difference or similarity. #### rstaff3 ##### Oddroc-eteer Originally posted by Neil 'Fraid so... Were motors really that cheap back then? :kill: Before the AT fire, AT would make a limited run of the G80FWLs for Magnum about once a year. If you bought in quantity you could get them for around ten bucks including Hazmat and shipping.

I've flown bunches and never had chuffing problems when ignited with a magnelite.

Yep, I still have 8 of those. No markings except the top paper cap that said G80FWL.

I love them.

I got a few at NYPower a few years ago, \$10 a pop and an awesome ride for a LOC Onyx or Big Betha....wish I still had one...

I have one -10 left. I find myself without a rocket to fly it in. Well, I could fly it in my Quest Smoke, but I want to hold on to both the motor and the rocket...for a while at least.

I have a few of the new G80's. The casing does not appear to be molded. The only drawback I can see to this new design is that it'll be a bit harder to remove the endcap and adjust the delay -- but most folks don't do that anyway.
