Default Flight Star Composites?

Is any familiar with these motors? Private labeled Aerotech, perhaps?

Marketed by Impulse Aerospace. The text-covered side of the package mentioned using a “Veri-Fire Ignition System”. I did a Google search on that and got a thread hit on The Rocketry Forum where someone was selling a Veri-Fire controller and they said it was by Impulse Aerospace.

Were they not the company out of Washington State maybe? Seems like I remember that name...

....and a search on that brought me right back to YORF!!! Link to a thread from this past summer!! ...a thread I responded too!! Geez, how quick my mind forgets some things these days.... Company was run by Bill Maness out of WA state.

I have a crapload of their (Aerotech) single use motors that I bought off of Bill when his company folded. He was selling them super cheap on the old RocketryOnline site.

It is an Aerotech made RocketVision motor.

I remember these from back when I bought some RocketVision stuff. I'll bet they didn't sell very many with that -5 second delay. Although all their kits were heavier seamless phenolic the Chariot and Pegasus were two of their larger kits neither would have flown well with a short -5 second delay.

I flew a bunch of AeroTech G55-10's in the early 90's and with 120 newton-seconds in a 24mm diameter they had a good bit of pep in them
