Great motor nice slow burn!!
By rbeard2 March 17, 2013
Another cool engine from Aerotech. The G40 burns for about 2.5 seconds and is a great choice for rockets that have been upgraded from 24mm motors to 29mm motors. This is because with the higher intitial impulse motors (like the G80) the thrust spike may be too much for the structure of the upgraded rocket. This G40 combined with a First Fire Jr. ignitor is THE hot combo for uprated mid-power rockets!
