Im trying to get stuff together for the annual TTRA Buccaneer Blast here in sunny Fla next month, and I wanted to find out if these F15-6 black powder motors would be an ok choice to launch my SLS Arcas? I have flown it with an F20 composite single use motor before with good results, but im just not sure about these motors...the rocket is pretty light for its size.....also I was wondering if anyone might be aware of any model rocket dealers locally in the Tampa Bay area, or even in the state? Many Thanks! Bill

F20 Economax & F15 are roughly equivalent. I might try an F15-4 if you haven't already flown it on a longer-delay F20...

Apogee says a D12-3 will work too... So your F15 is plenty, just make sure your delay is short enough.
