Dragless flight control system for flying objects

The Dragless Flight Control System for Flying Objects utilizes paired fins that are mounted to rotate in opposite directions. When no lift is desired during the object's flight, the fins are completely retracted into their housings that are recessed into the body of the object. This minimizes the...
