Dynasoar Rocketry specializes in unique Radio Controlled Rocket Glider kits for the excellent long burn Aerotech E-6 RC 24mm rocket motors.  We carry both the single use and reloadable versions of this motor and the special Aerotech casing.  These kits are not sailplanes with a rocket motor, these are sport scale kits where the intent is to look like a cool rocket plane yet have an easy to control boost with an easy controllable glide and a very soft landing at your feet.   Each kit is cut to order personally using white Estes and BMS tubing, and include high quality carbon fiber rods, plastic nose cones, 3m blenderm and velcro tape, dubro/great planes hardware and railbuttons.com buttons. Many steps are pre-done, spars slotted/and/or installed, elevons hinged, pushrods bent, tubing cut and marked, rocket mount completed, pieces taped for easy alignment after removal from the box. All components are white so no painting is required. Kits include an adapter wire for connecting a 1s jst connector lipo battery to a standard receiver.  All you need to complete any kit is foam safe CA+, Transmitter, receiver, 2 servos, 2 servo extensions and a 1s battery with JST connector.  You boost vertically on any standard pad with 1010 rail, nothing is ejected from the model and they are ready to fly again immediately. They boost to over 500′ and have glide times of over a minute in still air. Even though these kits have a very light wing loading and are not hard to fly, they are only recommended for people with experience flying aileron controlled fixed winged RC aircraft. Priority mail shipping to US addresses is included in the kit price and each kit ships in it’s own box.  Complete build instructions and photos are available online to help with assembly and setup, simply use the instruction pulldowns above to find all current and previously manufactured kit instructions, use the contact link above if you have any questions. * Only the kits listed on this main ordering page are currently available.  Scroll down and use the add to cart buttons to place an order for kits or motors.​

Single Use Rocket Motors


The single use E-6RC rocket motors are a disposable version of the reloadable motors I’ve used for years.  They are also several grams lighter so require less nose weight to balance.  Motors must ship usps ground. Shipping for motors are based purely on weight and will be added at paypal checkout.

Aerotech E-6P RC Single use $12.50 per motor.


 

 


Reloadable Rocket Motor Casings and Reload Kits


The aerotech 24mm E-6 motor is the recommended motor for all Dynasoar Rocketry kits.  They do require the aerotech 24mm RC casing which has a solid forward end.  

The reloads come in a pack of three with initiators.  Motors must ship usps ground. Shipping for reloads are based purely on weight and will be added at paypal checkout.   Watch the video below to see how easy it is to reload these motors.

Aerotech E-6RC 3-Pack reload $20.49




Aerotech 24mm RMS RC Plugged Casing and Closure $45.00

(this casing is required for the 3 pack reloads above)



 

Unpacking your kit:

The kits are packed to protect them in shipping, but the contents are fragile so unpack carefully.  Carefully cut the tape holding the tubes in the box, then unwrap/lightly cut the plastic wrap to free the tubes, the spar may be packed in the tubes and the baggie with the little parts and nose cone will be in the tubes as well.  Carefully cut the tape holding the cardboard wing protector in the box and carefully remove it, don’t pull hard or bend it.  Then carefully cut the tape holding the cardboard top piece to the bottom.  There may be some sticky tape holding the cardboard to the bottom cardboard piece, carefully peel it being sure not to bend anything.  Once the top cardboard is free you can see the foam wing/tail parts, there are little fragile pieces in here, so unwrap carefully.  It may be best to use an exacto to lightly cut the plastic wrap and carefully remove it without cutting into the foam.  Make sure everything is free before you remove the pieces to avoid breaking anything.  Kits contain one or two scrap pieces for repairs if you damage anything in construction or flight, just cut and patch in a spare piece of the foam if needed using foam safe CA+.

 

RC rocket gliders should be flown responsibly as you cannot turn off the motor after ignition, here is the NAR recommended safety code . AMA safety code only specifies  Rocket motors, up to a G-series size, may be used for propulsion, as long as they use solid propellants and remain attached to your model during the flight. Launching a rocket or any other missile from a model aircraft is prohibited Use the appropriate guidelines depending on whether you are at an AMA site of NAR supported launch.

**I get queries about shipping to Canada and overseas, however due to the size of the kit boxes the price is usually cost prohibitive and people aren’t interested in paying what the postal service charges.  For this reason Non US paypal accounts are not accepted by default.  If you are outside the US and are interested in ordering a kit please use the contact form with your mailing address and I can get you a quote and enable payment.   I can’t mail motors internationally.
