"The Only Way To Go When It's Time To 'Bulk Up!"
As a teacher of Electronics and Aerospace Technologies at a Technology Center I am always looking for exciting ways to get my students involved in activities that will challenge them but, at the same time provide them with a rewarding sense of accomplishment, increased self esteem and most importantly an opportunity to have some fun while learning. I have found few project oriented methods that perfectly fit that description better than model rocketry!! They say that it is always better to buy in bulk! Well speaking from experience, especially through Hobbylinc, that truly is the way to go! With a class load of 25 to 30 students, it doesn't take long at all to go through many, many rocket engines in a very short time frame. I'm not talking about any waisted engines either. The students simply get so excited about building and flying their rockets, they can't fly them enough. As an instructor, there is nothing worse, in my opinion, than having a group of students get really excited about a project like model rockets and then be forced to stifle that enthusiasm by having to tell them, sorry, we're out of rocket motors!! The bottom line is , Bulk Up!! With limited educational funds, buying in bulk is the most cost efficient way to insure you'll have all the materials you'll need for your student, scouts or youth group when their needed and to keep the fun rolling!! Bulk Educator Engine Packs are available in a wide variety of Impules and delay charges as well as including recovery wadding, igniters and plugs. Don't be caught short on the flight line! Clear Skies!

"Good deal"
All things considered, a nice package. Was a rocketry guy in the late 60.s early 70's. Drifted away, no pun intended. Back now with youngest child, a nine year old. ARF rockets? Wow. The days of the super light rockets are replaced with ARF's using allot of plastic which is heavy compared to balsa. Why bring this up? The A8-3 will only lift those entry level plastic beasts a couple hundred feet at best. AT BEST. Use an A8 to figure wind direction and speed. Then use B class engines in the plastics. Now you are at 500+ feet and much more fun for the activity. As I said, all considered, you cant beat the prices and value and selection at Hobbylinc. Just buy the right engines for your model and field and wind conditions on launch day. What a thrill to be back in the hobby and the smell of a spent rocket engine ! Fly safely and join a club.

"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!

"Great kits"
Worked well for BSA pow wow. Boys ages ranged from 11 to 15 years old and they were able to assemble with minimal help.
