  • Estes Rocket motors A8-5 (Pk3) D-ES1599


    The Estes A8-5 rocket motors, sold in packs of three and designated as part number D-ES1599, are reliable propulsion systems designed for model rocketry enthusiasts. Here's an overview of the key features and specifications of the Estes A8-5 rocket motors:

    Key Features:

    Size and Configuration: The A8-5 rocket motors are designed to fit standard Estes model rockets and other compatible rocket kits. They are compact yet powerful, providing sufficient thrust for various types of flights.

    Thrust Profile: The "A8" designation indicates the motor's total impulse class, while the "5" represents the delay time in seconds before the ejection charge ignites. In this case, the A8-5 motor offers a relatively short delay time of 5 seconds, suitable for many types of model rocket flights.

    Reliable Performance: Estes rocket motors are known for their reliability and consistent performance. The A8-5 motors deliver a smooth and stable thrust curve, ensuring predictable flight characteristics for your model rockets.

    Ease of Use: These rocket motors come pre-assembled and ready to use out of the box. Simply insert the motor into the rocket's motor mount and secure it according to the manufacturer's instructions. The motors are ignited using electric igniters (sold separately) and a launch controller.

    Safety Precautions: As with all model rocketry activities, it's essential to follow safety guidelines and launch protocols provided by Estes and other relevant authorities. Ensure proper supervision, launch from a designated launch site, and take precautions to prevent injury or property damage.


    Motor Type: Single-use rocket motor
    Total Impulse Class: A (Low power)
