Case closed. Thank you, Bob.

Alas, how did you navigate to this page: https://www.aerotech-rocketry.com/cus...w_in_20062.pdf

I started here: https://www.aerotech-rocketry.com and searched the site to no avail. Could not find your /customersite/resource_library/Instructions/HP-RMS_Instructions/38mm/38_1080sw_in_20062.pdf path.

Addendum: Although I am satisfied now that I have the data from the source (AT), it is still worthy of note the disparity between AT's Max N rating and the nearly double Max N rating that of Thrustcurve. Probably a typo.

So typo is the consensus, ok. CQ John Coker???? Haha :) Thanks for the direction. I've never launched an AT or perused their site before. "Resources" is self-explanatory but "Instructions" didn't jump out at me. I guess I was looking for a simpler motor specs chart or something.

Sadly the website is as jumbled as the product lines...

I am the editor on Thrustcurve. I am sure that was a typo- the entry process is manual. I will take care of the J510 entry I. The next couple of days.

Is there a PDF cross sectional assembly drawing for the mighty 38/1320 J510W?


Like this one for the J825R, but for the J510:
https://www.aerotech-rocketry.com/c.../38mm_hp_rms/38-1080/38-1080_j825r-m_assy.pdf

Yes, I found the instructions:
https://www.aerotech-rocketry.com/u...60b-8e4f-81dbfd1b138e_38_1320ssw_in_20068.pdf


Assembling one next week if the goofy Iowa weather allows... promise I'll post launch pics and/or video. Here's a launch teaser...

I do not think this drawing exists. That said, it is assembled the same as other Aerotech 38mm motors.

Thank you, David and Mark! I wanted to see the grain spacer O-rings in cross section, and now I can!

Well there it is! Thanks! I had googled and scrounged around before asking, but apparently not hard enough.
I can see how this would be a little hard to google. In my opinion, ATs "Resources" section is a hidden gem that isn't as well known as it deserves to be.

Quite the motor! It was easy to see and hear the o-ring grain spacers popping through the nozzle in this fat, 22lb rocket. I counted 4 pops.

This was a scratch built, previously unflown rocket from the 90s I inherited. Delay burned a little long and broke 2 lines on one of the homemade chutes. Rocket was fine and chute lines were easily repaired.

Now to put this 38/1320 case in a skinny rocket! Thanks again for the drawings!
