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 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.


3 C5-3 Engines

4 Starters

4 Plugs

"Mini" through "D" Rocket Engines must be shipped ground and will be shipped by *USPS (5 - 15 business day service) or optional **UPS Hazmat (2 - 5 business day service).  UPS charges us a $37.00 fee for this Hazmat service which we have to pass on to the customer!   If you want your order to go via **UPS Hazmat, please order one UPS Hazmat Shipping Service from the "Related Products" below.
 If shipping **UPS Hazmat, only one **UPS HAZMAT charge per order is required! 

*USPS (United States Postal Service) Ground Parcel Post: Takes 5 - 15 business days and requires no extra shipping charges. (Only mini through D can be shipped this way!)
**UPS Hazmat: ships regular UPS ground Hazmat and will arrive in 2 - 5 business days depending on your zone! UPS charges us a $37.00 hazardous material fee which we have to pass along! (This is above and beyond any shipping charges. ) If UPS is your choice please see "Related Products" below to order the UPS Hazmat shipping.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we have only these shipping options due to federal law!
