Good luck to whoever bids on em. They are already too high $$$.

I like using either a 1/2A6-0 or an A8-0 booster to a B14-7.
Slow liftoff then super-streak upper stage.

I have flown an Apogee II with and A8-0/A8-5 combo. It stages fairly low and you can see the upper stage accelerating afterwards.

MINE, MINE, MINE ! ALL MINE !

I snagged the 5 full unopened paks of B14-5s on ebay for what I thought waz a very reasonable $96.00
That's less than $20 a pak for vintage B14s !
At that price, they'll get flown.

I think you need to send me a pack for evaluation, documentation, permutation, and salivation.

I think NOT to Mr. tbzep's request.
Hoping some have real drilled cores.
At this price, lofting an egg in my Original Astron Scrambler is possible.

That can be done with 'standard' engines too. Even a cluster of A8's should handle that fine. Won't have the 'umph' of the B14s of course, but a cluster of A8's or B6's or C6's will all loft an egg no problem.

I know those will loft an egg, but a 3xB14 cluster is effectively a 3/4 D42.
Real kikker.

Ok guys, I got SCAMMED by ebayer "wareagle".
What he advertised was 5 paks of B14-5.
What he sent was 2paks of B14-5, 2paks of worthless 1/2A6-2, and 1 pak of equally worthless B4-4.
I would have never paid over $50 for this. I paid over $100 shipped.
I told the seller he either needs to remedy this by sending 3 more paks of B14-5 or refunding me $50. If he does not, he will get negative feedback (something I never do) and will file a buyer protection claim with ebay getting all my money back and I'll keep what he sent and stiff him.

Update: the seller was an older lady that knows nothing about rocket motors.
She is refunding $50, which is reasonable.
