Hi,

I'd like to know if I can use the Aerotech RMS-29/240 Motor Hardware
for the LOC Graduator.

Sure, it will fit with out a problem, don't know if I'd try the H97, but the
H180 and the H220 should be good flights.

Depends on how it's built, and if you are L1, or planning L1.  This hardware
uses a reload in the HP range, and if built stock, should handle the motor
length.  Also depends on your field....  Will it go too high and be lost.....

I believe this kit has a 29mm motor mount. If so, yes.

I ran it in RockSim, both H180 and H220 reach around
3500'. Be sure it's built for it and fly it in a BIG field as
well. This would be a flight you'd get a salute from "high
flyer" Gene Costanza! ( You Da' Man Gene! )

The 29/240 does fit. My stock Grad flys well on an H. Just take care
with the fin attachment. I used west epoxy and made internal as
well as external fillets. The H motors will get it going very fast.

The H-97, H-180 and H-220 really squirts it up there: 2500-3000 feet.
I have tried all 3, no problems with the H97J either. Plenty of
initial thrust to get off the pad.

It's been a few years, but I watched Pete Olivola certify with a Graduator
and IIRC the H180 at the Kankakee launch that later saw the infamous "silver
streak fire". His rocket was internally reinforced with extra coupler tubes,
a third centering ring, and he pined the fins from the inside.

I've got a THOY Hornet, which is pretty similar. I did add a third centering
ring, baffle, and of course Kaplow Klips. Built totally with titebond. Flown
on everything from D13 to H238 reloads. Just haven't got around the the
29/240 yet, but no reason it shouldn't work. You will need a large recovery
area!

Kankakee launch??  That's my hometown - where did you launch in K3?
When I was a kid, we would launch in local corn fields in spring/fall
and go to the state park in summer when we could get our parents to
drive us there.

I was only there once. It was a farm field, near (south of?) some sort of
youth camp.
