SDSU Progress

The SDSU Rocket Project have been making steady progress on their new rocket, with 3D printing of the RCS nozzles and final work on the tanks before the domes get welded on.

Video + Update: SDSU Rocket Project

The students of the SDSU Rocket Project have been busy testing a RCS (reaction control system) system for future rocket designs as posted on their Facebook page.

 

 

This follows on from their Galactic Aztec rocket launch earlier in the year (FULL LAUNCH RECAP HERE!), which saw their 11.5″ diameter, 27ft tall liquid fueled rocket soar into the sky’s and recovered successfully, albeit some charring from a LOX leak.

PSAS Cold Gas RCS on Instuctables

The team at Portland State Aerospace Society have just published theirĀ ‘how to’ guide on Instructables for making their cold gas reaction control system.

A great article, that points you to all the necessary GitHub locations and files in order to make it, with a bit of explanation. As a first go it would be easy enough to construct with the given parts list breakdown while you fine tune your code to your specific rocket application, or use theirs!
