Aurora

A Thrust Vectoring Model Rocket

Project Status: On hold

Project Aurora's goal is to develop a model rocket with thrust vectoring control. Thrust vectoring, or TVC, is a rocket control system which involves the rocket shifting the direction of its engines to maneuver. The first prototypes use compressed air instead of a solid rocket engine and are mounted to a frame that keeps the models in place while allowing rotation.

As this project is currently in progress, more material will be added to this page as the project moves forward.
