Hoobylinc has listed A10PT for sale then states that it is limited
availability no longer manufactured.  Does anyone know the actual
status of the motor?  They would seem to be great in a cluster with
one delay motor.

Thanks

This engine was intended for the Estes rocket powered cars.  I believe that
under advise from the CPSC, Estes has, perhaps temporarily, stayed their
decision to put these out onto the market.  Thus these engines become mute
in the Estes product line.
You are right, the engines would be neat in clusters.

A side comment:  Seeing how stupid some kids can be with air-powered rockets
and how sensitive the CPSC can be, I wouldn't trust either one with solid
propelled, fire and smoke cars.   Perhaps Estes can see how the molds can be
modified and convert these into cool flying rockets.

It is for the ground rocket car that, iirc, Estes no longer makes.  I
suspect that there is no further commercial reason for this motor.  Though
the application you suggest sounds like fun.

I've seen them on the shelf at stores.

Call Estes for correct information.

We can only guess.

Didn't they stop producing the A10-0 T as well?

I heard from at least one person that there are some A10-0Ps out there inthe
channels. Any one know where I can buy some for my food containers? Or for
that matter, D11-Ps. I'm down to my last 2 packs of them, having used up the
case I bought a couple years back.

Yea, maybe ... but perhaps Mike was lyrically saying that the engines
would not whoooosh, they will be silent, mute for all time.  ;{)

They sure gave my 4 x A10 + D12 Big Daddy some giddyup!  As others have
said, though, they're getting harder to come by.  Perhaps there'll be a
clearance sale soon?

Right after the last auction notice on RMR, I suppose....

You've seen Estes A10-PT motor packs on 'shelves' at stores?  Which
ones?  Just curious.  Estes has been pulling this shit more an more
recently where they sell to someone, and hold off for a bit for the
rest.  Maybe they felt Quest was getting ahead of them in 'selective
selling' and wanted to catch up.

Gee, I know of a place other than Hobbylinc who stocks D11-Ps.  If you
can guess who......

Yeah, but does he have a website? Or online ordering? Or could maybe send me
a price list? Or come to GARLO this year?
