The Estes C6-5 engine is single stage rocket engine. This engine is a standard engine designed for flights in rockets weighing less than 115g including the engine.

Each package includes 3 engines, 3 igniters and 3 igniter plugs.

How does a model rocket engine work?

- When the engine is ignited, it produces thrust and boosts the rocket into the sky.

- After the propellant is used up, a delay is activated, producing tracking smoke and allowing the rocket to coast.

- After the delay is burnt, the ejection charge activates, deploying the recovery system.

Each engine has an alpha-numeric code, for example B6-4:

- The first Letter 'B' for example is the total impulse, or power in Newton-Seconds produced by the engine. Each succeeding letter has up to twice the impulse power as the previous letter. For example, a 'B' engine has twice the power of an 'A' engine, which results in approximately twice the altitude the rocket will reach.

- The next number '6' for example shows the engine's average 'push' or how fast the engine powers the rocket to go. The higher the number the faster the speed. It is measured in Newtons.

- The final number '4' in our example is the time delay in seconds between the end of the thrust phase and the ignition of the ejection charge (to blow the nose-cone off and the recovery parachute out of the tube).
