Prometheus rocket

Prometheus Rocket

The prometheus rocket was developed alongside the blip flight computer to use active thrust vector control to control itself. To learn more about thrust vector control, Click here. Prometheus is for all extensive purposes, nearly ready for flight, only being delayed by the blip flight computer. Blip takes in data from 2 sensors, and calculates the optimal motor angle to maintain stability. Then, blip sends that data to prometheus, which adjusts two servos the reorient the motor. It flies on an estes F15-0 rocket motor, and rescends on two parachutes. It flies to about 200 meters, and is built of two 3 inch body tube sections. The nose cone, as well as several parts around the rocket are 3d printed on an ender 3 pro 3d printer.

Pegasus I Rocket

Pegasus was Gallantz Aerospace's first rocket, and its goal was to develop manufacturing and design capability for Gallantz Aerospace. It has flown twice currently, with 2 flights planned before it is retired and replaced with the Pegasus II. It is controlled with 3d printed fins, and reaches and apogee of about 250 meters
Status: in use
In service: nov 2020-current
Motor: Estes D12-7
Parachutes: 1
Diameter: 34mm
Length: 1 meter

Pegasus II Rocket

Pegasus II is being developed as a replacement to the current Pegasus rocket. It was developed to reach higher speeds and altitudes than Pegasus I. It will reach a maximum altitide of 1000 meters or 1 kilometer. It will have a very basic flight computer to allow it to log flight data and deploy the parachutes, but it will not have any active control capability.
