    Thrust Vector Controlled "Hopper" Vehicle

    Hi everyone! Between my busy school schedule, I have manged to finish my hopper before the end of 2020. This will be used to test TVC hardware and software. It's a carbon fiber frame with simple body panels, fully expandable, and modular. So this was based off of Masten Space System's Xombie...

Also what are your general thoughts about TVC in the field of model rocketry? What type of test stands have you built too? It seems like static Firing is...

    9 Motor Cluster (with gimbaled center motor)

    Hi everyone! I have been developing a open source TVC system for model rocket. I then got a crazy Idea of clustering 9 motors. Of course I highly doubt I would attempt this anytime soon, But I was wondering if anyone ever clustered slow burn motors with normal motors. I made a rough CAD design...
