Ordering

Dynasoar Rocketry specializes in limited runs of unique Radio Controlled Rocket Gliders for the excellent long burn Aerotech E-6 RC 24mm rocket motors. These kits are cut personally by me using Depron or Model Plane foam, 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. Current kits come with an adapter wire for connecting a jst lipo battery to a standard receiver.  Complete build instructions and photos are available online to help with assembly and setup. Use the Instruction pulldowns above to find all current and OOP kit instructions. Wing loading is very light and glide speed and decent rate are slow enough for easy spot landings. You boost vertically on any standard pad with 1010 rail, nothing is ejected from the model and they are ready to fly again immediately. Their design gives them a low wing loading, slow glide, and easy construction while still maintaining the look of a real aircraft. They boost to over 500′ and have glide times of over a minute in still air. Once trimmed, they are a lot of fun to fly in the wind. Even though these kits are not hard to fly, they are only recommended for people with aileron controlled fixed winged aircraft RC flight experience. Priority mail shipping to US addresses is included in the kit price and each kit ships in it’s own box. Please allow 2-3 days for me to create your kit. We are one of the only dealers who stock a large inventory of the 24mm Aerotech E-6RC rocket motor reloads. Current paypal settings will only allow US address buyers to order directly. If you are in Canada the only shipping option that is cost effective is parcel with no insurance.  Use the contact form to let me know you are interested and I’ll give you an estimate and send an invoice.   Scroll down and use the add to cart buttons to place an order for kits or motors.​

 

I’ll be attending NARCON  from 2/22-2/27 so any orders will be filled and shipped on 2/30

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 or modifying the forward closure of a standard casing by filling it with JB weld and using an additional o-ring and washer from Aerotech which I can provide. Information here-> Experiment using modified forward closure and standard 24/40 casing with E-6 reloads.  Using the standard casing is not NAR approved so flights with these motors should only be done at private launch sites or tripoli research launches.  The standard casing/closure is longer so your motor will stick out of the motor case, however as long as you balance your model this causes no issue just tape the motor to keep it from falling out after burnout since the motor hook will not capture it.  Any use of this non NAR approved method is at your own risk to both casing and kit.

 

The reloads come in a pack of three with initiators.  Motors must ship usps ground. Shipping for reloads/casings 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.

***Notes regarding rocket motors used in these kits:

 

These kits are designed for the E-6 because it has a gentle burn rate and keeps the speeds low, around 88fps.  This has two benefits, you reduce chance of flutter in the foam wing from overspeed and it gives you more time to adjust to wind and trim issues especially on the first few flights.

 

  •  I would definitely not use E-11/E-15 P-W motors because the speeds expected with that motor are twice what you get with the E-6 and I would worry about flutter.  I’ve designed these to be as light as possible with the available components to maximize performance on the E-6 so they aren’t tested with the high thrust motors for that reason.  If I designed them stiffer, they would be heavier and performance would be lower.  In fact the long burn motor will get you a higher altitude than a high short thrust burn given the drag of the model.
  • I would never trust one of the estes 24mm E motors as I’ve just seen too many fail and Estes won’t replace your RC model:)
  • A plugged D-12-0 motor(plugged with epoxy) in my tests were ok.   The initial thrust is higher, but the burn time is lower, so you may not get  too high a speed, but if you are out of trim on your first flight you may need to be quick on the sticks to keep it going vertical till you get your trims sorted out.  That would be my biggest worry.   The D motor only gets you 200-250′ altitude so glides are short.  You need to apply at least a 1/8″ thick layer and make sure there are no air bubbles etc while it cures that would expose propellent burn to the front of the motor and into the glider.  If you had well stored D-11P motors those should be fine as well.
  • Epoxy plugging bp motors is not manufacturer approved and so not NAR legal, and modifying bp motors makes them research, and tripoli does not allow bp research motors, AMA approved flying sites follow NAR rules so would not be kosher either, so I can’t really formally recommend that in general, but if you are flying at your own site you can do whatever you want to and people do it all the time.  I’ve lobbied and tried to get Estes/NAR to approve plugging motors as ok but no response yet.
