PSAS RCS Testing

The team over at Portland State Aerospace Society have been working on a small reaction control system (RCS) for their rockets. The system uses stored gas and is outputted through 3D printed nozzles placed around a machined ring. Initial tests had LEDs in place of actual air and solenoids as shown below, before moving onto the machined ring and flight hardware with air as shown below.

All this is open source, the various CAD files, codes and notes can be found on GitHub, so you could implement this into your own rocket projects.
