Winner of National Rocketry Championship 2016 – 17

We are happy to announce the winners of the fourth UKSEDS National Rocketry Championship: Team Brexit Escape System from our branch SPARK from Keele University. Their rocket ‘The Flying Squirrel’ flew on a Pro Cessaroni G250-Vmax. Reached an altitude of 227m. They also designed a 3D printed fin can which included three rotating cylinders to produce a Magnus effect to convert the energy of the air moving past their rocket to generate a greater ‘thrust’ force, see some videos of them testing it out below.

If you would like to take on the challenge join the National Rocketry Championship today!
