Ready to use 1ft Starters for your Estes or any black powder model rocket motors. Requires 1 per launch to ignite your Estes engine. Requires 1 volt or more to fire. In regards to clusters, these can be fired in series or parallel. The Estes E launch controller works great, as do our Alpha system. Standard are 3mm in diameter. They are great for replacing the match that comes with the smaller estes motors. DAP and Loctite make adhesive puttys that work great atholding the starters in the motors.
