Retro Rocket EDF Thrust Vectoring for 70mm - Thrust Vectoring Unit

The nozzle will print without support. The Thrust Tube requires support around the servo mounts.
I printed with PLA, 100% infill.

You will need to wet sand the ball-joint surfaces. I started with 400 grit, and worked my way up to 3000 grit. This makes for a smooth friction-less joint.

You will probably need to sand to fit your EDF. I used a dremel drum bit to ream it out to a perfect friction fit. I did not need to glue to the EDF.

I mounted the unit in a v-tail formation due to...

I’d like to see Josh and crew implement this into one of theirs in a future video.
I designed this after Josh issued a challenge to the community to create an EDF Thrust Vectoring Unit. I have no idea if it will win the challenge, but the plan is for them to promote the use of the device of whoever wins, at FF 2024. its a great design, and a very simple one to print and assemble. Let me know of you need any assistance getting it working.

Retro Rocket EDF Thrust Vectoring for 70mm

I would like to give a special thank-you to @SP0NZ for helping with design changes, and testing the fit of the new Thrust Tube. (not to mention, letting me borrow his pictures to post here)

The new files are specifically designed to fit the FT Store purchased EDF. This version does not require glue, and will snap-lock into position, forming a secure connection to the EDF.

Also, the tolerances have been improved to allow for an almost friction-less joint, only requiring...
