I still have 6 boxes of L-2 Rapier motors, not sure what I am going to do with them. Maybe make another rocket plane. Last time I used them was in a Bell X-1 many years ago, that plane was stolen when my back was turned.

Cheers, Ray K.

Are you asking about Rapier motors?  If so I believe they are being made in Czechoslovakia still, but due to the change in shipping laws cannot be shipped outside of the country.  I believe some of the fellas in the UK do travel there and bring some back to the UK for their models, but I'm not sure about that lately.  Since 9-11 lots of things have changed.

Most of the modelers in the U.S. are moving to micro/mini EDF (Electric Ducted Fan) models, check out HPA's thread on EDF's like Tom Arnold's F-86K: Click Here
