001617 – C5-3 Engines

(2 customer reviews)

$11.79

The Estes Super C is back! Reintroducing the Estes C5-3 engine – 50% increase in maximum thrust over a standard C engine and the punch you need to propel those heavier rockets off the pad. The Super C is a great choice for larger birds and for payload rockets, like competition egg-lofters, that need that extra push.

  1. James W Piliero

    Very glad to see these back. I hope in time Estes will add a little more “Burn Time” to all their great reliable motors to make the launches even more fun to watch.

  2. Rocket Guru

    The return of the Estes 18mm C5-3 Super C rocket motor has been long over due and thanks to you Estes for making this possible. The original C5-3 back in the 1980’s had a slightly longer burn time, at 2.10sec, but only 0.2sec.off of the current burn time of 1.9sec.and is a great rocket motor for the Maxi-Brutes series and works fine for my Maxi Alpha in small fields. Will we expect to see more from the Super C line of motors like a booster C5-0, or upper stage C5-5,6,or 7, Estes?
