I had an idea to keep a rocket flying perfectly straight. I had an idea of having two counter rotating weights (the weights of electric motors themselves should be enough) in the nose, that would keep the rocket flying straight. They would have to be counter rotating as one would just induce a spin in the rocket itself. and if it is going to spin, it would be easier just to let the fins do the job. I know there would be a weight penalty for this but for rockets meant to fly high I think the loss of altitude due to flight angle would be more than the loss of altitude due to weight. Any Ideas?
