A B3 motor in the red tube is a bit older than the B14-0 from 1969 that I flew last year. Staged perfectly to a B6-6 upper stage. I’ve got four more B14-0 motors, will probably launch another this year. My only upper stage B14 is a 1968 Centuri, and I don’t really want to use it. Besides, last year’s flight staged pretty high up and I would not have really appreciated a B14 much more than the B6 I used.
