Sounds great. Maybe we will get some higher power consumer motors out of this.
Estes H through J power would be great.

Default Probably no new toys for us--

I expect these new motor systems will not be available to the general public.

But at least this could improve the general fiscal health of Estes, and help keep them in business making the toys we all know and love.....

An interesting sideline!

Centuri / Enerjet did some contracting, and FSI had a side-biz in movie special effects.

Bob,

I wonder if Estes had to get permission to use that statement?

The extra endeavors are all well and good as long as they don’t start siphoning off talent from their model rocketry operations to support the upper end stuff. I’d hate to see that core business (well, at least ‘core’ to the model rocketry hobby) suffer because of needs in their other areas.
