The Estes Super C is back! Reintroducing the Estes C5-3 engine – 50% increase in maximum thrust over a standard C engine and the punch you need to propel those heavier model rockets off the pad. The Super C is a great choice for larger birds and for payload rockets, like competition egg-lofters, that need that extra push.

The Estes C5-3 standard (18 mm) engine is a single stage type of engine (green label) that is used for flying a model rocket. This engine is designed for flights in rockets weighing less than 8 ounces, including the engine. Each engine size is designated by a letter and is up to twice as powerful as the letter before it.

Safe, intelligent design, precise manufacture and strict engineering tolerances have made Estes model rocket engines the standard in the industry. Estes model rocket engines have been proven consistent and reliable in more than 300,000,000 launches. All Estes engines comply with the codes of the National Fire Protection Association and are certified by the National Association of Rocketry.
