    Igniting 2nd stage Aerotech motors?

    Hello! I'm currently developing a small flight computer that captures telemetry on flights, and I want to build in the ability to fly 2-stage High-Power rockets. However, as far as I can tell, Aerotech motor igniters need ~12v 3A, or 36W, to fire. At present I'm struggling to find a MOSFET that...

    Aerotech G-force Build Thread - WIP

    Hey folks, Merry Christmas! Documenting the build of my level 1 rocket here. I decided to go with the Aerotech G-Force. Reason being - I'm familiar and used to 29mm reloads, and I know that with such a large heavy rocket, an H motor will fly nice, low and slow. Additionally, it's a "somewhat"...

    Aerotech mid power thrust ring

    I recently bought the Aerotech Cheetah and do not want to use the engine hook. Instead, I am using an Estes motor retainer. The Aerotech instructions say to slide the thrust ring till it hits the motor hook’s end. Can I get rid of the thrust ring or do I need to use the motor retainer?

    Recommendations to fix aerotech G force

    My Aerotech G force took a nose dive today due to my fault. I hadn’t flown it in 5 years and forgot it came with a heat dissipating metal sponge and baffle. I loaded dog barf and sent it on it’s merry way with a G74. It went up beautifully but didn’t have enough force to pop open and ate it big...

    38/1320 hardware usage

    There is only one Aerotech reload for the for 38/1320 hardware, the J510. Everyone who has reported, praises the motor. But how many J510s do you burn? Or do you use adapters for 38/1080 and 38/720 reloads to expand the usefulness of the hardware? Or did you buy the case just so you had a full...
