BPS TVC Testing

Video Caption: This test was not intended to(and does not) feature a fully stable vehicle or tuning. The purpose of Series A is to gather high resolution data from the flight computer in order to build an accurate offline model of the vehicle, and its response to a given TVC correction value. The vehicle aimed to keep one axis steady, while cycling through a 10 degree offset in the set-point on the other axis, roughly halfway through the burn. Using the offline model, I can tune the stabilization algorithm without running complicated and expensive tests, saving time in the process. A TVC Series B test will be conducted after thorough offline verification of the ideal tuning is ready, likely within two weeks.
