  1. The wrocketman

    Great for light 2 stagers!

    As a rocket fleet owner, when I go out to launch I like to have a full tackle box (yes- a tackle box- keeps engines relatively moisture free and keeps the engines nice and organized!) of all of the engines my models might require. I was real happy to be able to get A8-0’s again, because I have a few light 2 stagers that a B6-0 is just too much oomph for the field I launch at. So, the A8-0’s are back in stock in their spot in my engine tackle box, and my rockets that A8-0s are recommended for are flying (and not out of sight!) again. If you have a rocket like the Taser Twin, and would like to get it back- get some A8-0’s for the booster stage.

    Great “Test Engines”

    These engines are perfect for first time fights of multi-staged rockets. It allows you to get a good idea of how your new rocket will fly before putting in the “big” engines!
