Thrust Vectoring Autonomous LEM (Lunar Excursion Module) Build

New Project. Decided to use my thrust Vectoring experience to build this awesome machine in honor of 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

Using foamboard and a laser cutter to build the body. I haven't completed the 2D plans yet as this is a complex structure to create with fomboard. Trying to stick to the original design as much as I can but need to do some tweaks due to the requirements of the EDF and the thrust vectoring system to work at peak performance.

Unit will be autonomous and will possibly be released from a rocket for an autonomous landing at the home coordinates (Will think about that later, as the unit needs to fly first).

Below are some pics of the design and a footage from the cutting of the first body part. Will try to post as frequently as I can.

Thats a fancy lil nozzle setup. I like how its a ball n socket nozzle and not just flat blade deflectors.

That could have a nice impact on the edf crowd doing the sukkoi and F series fighter jets now.
