I'll buy any Quest D5-P motors you want to sell. These are 20mm plugged motors -- even though the physical label identifies them as D5-0, there is no delay charge or ejection charge. They've been discontinued by Quest (because their supplier discontinued them), which is why I'm looking for them here.

I've still got a handful of these - where are you located? I'm in Utah, am not able to ship. I had bought them for D Boost Glider competition, but then missed the event.

Oh well, I'm sure there are other pockets of them somewhere. Thanks for the offer.

I use these for Saucer motors, but I can use the delay version for that.
I have 8 D5-0P motors and can arrange for ground transport in early April to the Atlanta area.

Careful what you fly them in, the last one I had a year ago from quest, it catod off the pad, pretty impressive. What are you flying them in?

I'm developing alternative modes of recovery, where the chute is not primary. So I want a plugged motor, to allow programmed contingent deployment. I'm primarily interested in low-power, and these are among the most powerful plugged D's.

So your comment is on point. Since I'll have experimental recovery systems, as well as these weird little motors, I have to accept that there will likely be some losses. That's why this craft will not be a lovingly hand-sanded work of artisanal magic. It'll be a modular 3D-printed workhorse ;)
