"A great value for teaching!"
rmstechlab (Evans, GA)
First of all, let me tell you that you won't find a better value than this bulk pack here at Hobbylinc; if you're looking for the best price, you've found it. I've used these A8-3 motors for launching student-built Viking rocket models for several years now. With school budgets getting tighter each year, it's good to know that I can come here for these supplies without having to sacrifice in other areas of my program. As far as the motors themselves are concerned, you can expect the usual Estes quality. I can't remember ever getting a dud in well over 1000 launches. The only thing I've ever had trouble with is a rare faulty igniter here and there, but this isn't really a problem since the package includes plenty of extras. Of course, A8-3 motors aren't the most powerful, but this fits my needs nicely. Since I launch several rockets at a time, I find the lower altitude makes it easier to manage the process; I can launch in a smaller area and recovery is much easier. Of course, the Viking rocket is pretty small, so even an A8-3 will result in a satisfactory launch height; anything more would be overkill. One of my favorite features of this pack has nothing to do with the actual motors, but with the packaging itself. In the past I've purchased motors in bulk only to receive several retail packages of 3. It's a minor complaint, but opening and preparing several of these packages can be a real pain, especially if you're trying to do it in a rush. This bulk pack is much easier to deal with as all the engines are in one box. In short, this is a great package with everything you'll need to get your rockets in the air; even better, it's the best value you can find. Buy it!

 
"Worked every time"

The set worked perfectly. Engines and itnitors fired every time.

 
"Buy this bulk set!"

What's not to love? Nearly all low power rockets (LPR) suggest an A8-3 for initial, shake-down flights - so you know you are going to need a large number of them if you have any sizeable quantity in your fleet. Plus, the kit comes with the ignitors and plenty of wadding for your flights as well. Nothing is worse than being on the rocket launch line and realizing you don't have any more motors. Buying in bulk saves $$$ too! Thanks Hobbylinc!
