My son and I have just pruchased a Starter kit from Aerotech. It
contains the fire controller and mantis launcher. The model in it is
the Initiator. It also came with 2 E15-4W engines. The stats say
approx. 660 feet. Is this about what I can expect if finished within
weights given for model? About how large of an area do we need.
Also could some one explain to me how a single lead (copperhead)
ignitor works? I understand two leads =short which heats and ignites
the motor, but this one lead has me baffled right now. What is the W<
J and T on the motors really mean besides a name like white lightning.
Are they all the same power or what?
Did I make a good choice for this catagory of rocket, in choosing the
Aerotec Initiator? The dealer here in our area is not experienced in
anything other than A,B,C Estes motors and kits and just got these
Aerotec kits in today. Missing was the box that was supposed to have
the 2 motors that are included in the kit, so I had to choose and
picked the E154-W. Was this a wise choice? Would it be worth it if
I made the move to the RMS motors? Guess I don't need to count my
chickens before their hatched (launched in this case) Guess I will
have to see if it survives its launches on the motors I have.
Thanks again, especially for info with the Sidewinder kit.
