The cost of submitting a motor is pretty substantial because as well as the $350 fee and three motors, ROAR also wants proof that you have substantial stock as well. The old approval form used to also ask for proof that you had a minimum stock of 2000 motors of each type you submitted.
ROAR is the US RC governing body
Out of curiosity, why would this concern you ?

There are many 21.5 approved motors on the list
Perhaps you should enquire with those mfg's about why they went thru the process ?

Don't think that's going to work after the D3.5 beat down he received in our trophy race last year.

yeah, i also missed it the first time through, but Tekin strikes me as a by the book sort of operation, so it forced me to have a second look.

i ended up copying the approval list into excel and sorting on mfg and model before i found it!

If you look at the top of the approval list you can click on each column and it will sort the list by that column. Wind, Manufacture, Date approved, etc. It makes it much easier to find what your looking for by doing it that way.

yeah, just feel a little foolish, it reminds me of an incident years ago where a friend's father removed the gas tank from his vehicle to figure out there was dirt in the carb.
