The Enerjet and the large Mini-Max would probably push about $100 each. The smaller Mini Max E's would probably go for $70-$80 each or so. The others not too sure about, but they would fetch a decent dollar or two.

That FSI F32 THUNDERBOLT motor is very rare. In the mid-1970's I saw Doug Pratt fly one in a FSI Black Brant II, at one of our BCMRA launches in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

A very unusual Thrust Curve for that motor . . . I am unsure of it's grain design !

Default ACS Reaction Labs

Here is a photo of some of The Reaction Labs motors.

F-57 29mm
G-78 29mm
H-160 38mm
Early H-160 38mm

Reaction Labs was started by Don Carter and Mark Weber (Hope this is correct) I actually picked up some motors from Don and his wife many many years ago. Actually two of the nicest people I have ever met.

Reaction Labs also sold the Whirlwind E motor for a very short time. Had a very nice (if short) catalog also. I will see if I have a picture of them or I will take one.

I am really fond of the Crown F67-12 and E30-8 motors those were my introduction into composites. Mine all had the red and white label same as yours and I have seen the earlier SSRS that didnít have a label that just had the handwritten catalog numbers on the casing. I flew a lot of F67ís and that to me was the original bad ass motor for the near minimum diameter Crown Lasor134, NCR Hypersonic 1100 and AAA LaserSonic 1350 kits that I had. I loved the old school low smoke composite fuels and the amazing altitudes that I could achieve with those motors in smaller rockets.

Hi, the crown F67 and composite dynamics/ pro jet were my first composites. I recently used a 40 yr old motor. Pro jet great E30, F45. Crown F67 didnít eject n crashed

I'm down to only a few CD Pro-Jets left. I know I have at least two E20's, two F45s, and maybe four F40s. I used to fly one a year until about 2005. They always worked and never bonus-delayed.
