The AeroTech Loadable Motor System LMS is a single-use motor in kit form that is assembled by the user. All of the Aerotech LMS motors use all-disposable components. You will need 5-minute epoxy glue to assemble this motor, which is not included.
The K250W-PS is a Plugged/Smoke motor. Plugged reload kits do not utilize a motor-actuated ejection charge. Plugged motors must be used in conjunction with a timer, altimeter or radio-activated recovery system. It requires a 54mm Aft Closure and a 54mm Extended Forward Closure.
This AeroTech motor utilizes a patent pending high-strength polymer case and bulkhead, polymer nozzle and RCSs exclusive White Lightning™ aerospace grade composite propellant formulation, which produces a gorgeous bright white flame with lots of dense white smoke and a throaty roar at lift-off.
This AeroTech motor pack comes with 1 rocket motor and 1 FirstFire™ Initiator. Requires HAZMAT shipping via UPS or FEDEX. The sale of this high power motor to persons under 18 years of age is currently prohibited by federal law. This is a High-Power motor requiring Level 2 High-Power certification through NAR or Tripoli to purchase. Orders containing this item will not be shipped until proof of age (such as a copy of a driver’s license) and proof of Level 2 certification is received.
Certified by the Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA), the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) and the Canadian Association of Rocketry (CAR).
