# Investigating Reaction Control System Designs

We need to understand what it would take to build an RCS system for a LV2 class rocket, and up to a LV3 class.

### Questions:

 - What kind of fuel
 - What is the delta-v budget for the system with some basic assumptions
 - How does a system like this scale
 - How dangerous is it
 - How do you leverage newer technologies like additive manufacturing


### Inspiration
