What type of Rocket Motors are there?

The rocket motors available for use are commercially available, Australian legal, solid fuel motors.These motors have a long history of safe reliable use throughout the world.

Motors are given a letter designation such as A, B, C, D, etc. The letter stands for the level of impulse (push) of the motor with every next letter being twice as powerful as the previous. For example, a B motor is twice as powerful as an A motor, a C motor is twice as powerful as a B motor.

Large Model Rocket Certification with the NSWRA can provide you with access to E, F, and G motors. High Power Certification will give you access to anything up to N motors - now this is really big stuff!! (A pyrotechnics licences will be needed for the big stuff)
