About this project

Newest TVC

Hello everyone! I have spent months of working to make a high-performance TVC system for model rockets and the High Powered Community! It took me dozens of iteration changes before the actuation became smooth. Please report issues and feedback to the community so we can further improve on the design.

Code

CodeC/C++
//Xenon Static Fire 1 (No Feedback)//

#include <Servo.h>

Servo myservo;  // create servo object to control a servo
// twelve servo objects can be created on most boards

int pos = 0;    // variable to store the servo position

void setup() {
  myservo.attach(2);  // attaches the servo on pin 9 to the servo object
 
}

void loop() {
  for (pos = 11; pos <= 87.5; pos += 1.75) { // goes from 0 degrees to 180 degrees
    // in steps of 1 degree
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
    delay(15);                       // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
  }
  for (pos = 87.5; pos >= 11; pos -= 1) { // goes from 180 degrees to 0 degrees
    myservo.write(pos);              // tell servo to go to position in variable 'pos'
    delay(15);                       // waits 15ms for the servo to reach the position
  }
}
