  I just snagged the Jetex Jupiter C kit that was on there.  Anyone
know anything about Jetex models other than the fact that they use
Jetex motors?  This one looked like it was in pretty good shape.

I didn't think jetex engines were any use for rocketry ( long, low power
burn) I've seen them used in rocket powered gliders ( 20 degree take off?).
In fact I've got one on the shelf waiting to be built.

These are rocket powered gliders vs rockets that glide. A jetex motor will
not lift its own weight vertically. It can provide forward thrust to a
glider where the wings provide the lift. In a way jetex was the first
reloadable rocket motor. IIRC someone once tested these motors and found
them to be about an A motor. But it's flight characteristics do not fit
within our model rocket safety code. They are fun, but not model rockets as
we know them in RMR.

Beg to differ, Bob. I once built a very light rolled paper tube/balsa fin
rocket around a Jetex 50. It took awhile to lift off, but made a stately
climb to about 75 feet before running out of steam. Agreed, however, that
Jetex-powered model aircraft perform far better.

I am told that a new line of re-engineered Jetex motors is now available
in the USA, although I haven't seen them in any of the hobby shops I
frequent. I think there's a website; a search under Jetex might pay off.

Hmmm...  Maybe that's what I ended up with.  What's the name of your
rocket glider kit?  I saw Jupiter C, and assumed the Jupiter booster.
In the photo of the kit, there was definitely a BT, but I thought I
noticed the word "trim" (as in "t***") on the included instruction
sheet.  Well, now I'll really be suprised!
