Hi Everyone.
Having recently discovered this thread I am wondering if there is any chance in obtaining any motors. I blt an Aerographics Bell XS-1 several years ago and flew it on Rapier L2's it was a little underpowered. Would be great to give it another go. Also I see the latest way to go is with an electric igniter and any advice on availability of these would be appreciated.
Regards...Chris

Hi Chris,

A box of 10 TSP L-2L motors will cost you £25.00 plus £3.50 p&Pp Igniters (modified Cord Zaps) are still available:

see: Igniter for Rapiers and Tender motors
Postage is again £3.50, so motors plus igniter will put you back £57.00 :)

Early field reports are that they behave well. One word of warning: they are a bit bigger than the Rapier L-2, so some butchery of your Bell XS-1's motor mount will be required. :huh:

Thanks for the reply Roger. That's great news I'll look how best to modify the model and get an order off to you. I did follow the link in your post and saw the igniter but not the L2L's (Unless I'm doing something silly)

Roger comments: I've replied with details etc by email, Chris. :kiss:

Following requests for a more powerful motor Piotr has been testing his new TSP L-5 which he opines, "Will be big enough for any model you can build, or even a trip to the moon":



These are of course likely to be quite expensive and storage and transport too are a challenge. I think I'll stick to the L-1 and L-2 type variants! :lol:

Having now seen the motors in the flesh, they look very good. They seem fairly easy to ignite, give a yellowish smoke with a different and not so fruity smell. Thrust seems well centred by the nozzle and consistant throughout the duration which looked to me around the 20 second mark. Looks good.
