Default Estes Beta Booster

If any body has the Booster for an Estes Beta two-stager but has lost the sustainer, I would be happy to offer the booster a good home. I have a rescue sustainer and I thought it'd be fun to rescue a booster too.

I know I could just make one, but I thought I'd try this first.

I have yet to lose my Beta because I've only boosted it with my special 1/4A3-0 and 1/2A3-0 motors. I like the idea that you want the complete model to be a rescue.

That's because tbzep Industries is a boutique manufacturer, exclusive access only.

I have two rescued Beta rockets, both complete. Ish. I've flown the older one several times, but the second one has been sitting loaded and ready to fly for a year+. There have been major changes at B6-4 Field of late. The cut down the bulk of the trees that surrounded the field out near US 27 and Woodfill Avenue. How DARE they not offer me the nose cones back!

Does this mean that it may be re-christened the C6-5 Field?

I suspected those 1/4A3-0 motors may have been a tbzep industries ltd. product.
Any relation to Zorin industries or the Drax Corp ?
