Thrust Vectoring Rocket

Created on 02 Nov 2021

Fins: Gone. We're taking model rocketry to another galaxy

We are building a finless model rocket controlled by servos with a control feedback loop instead of aerodynamic stabilization. Utilizing servos, 3d printing, an Arduino, and a gyroscope we are taking off the fins and going rogue. See you in the skies.
