i found a good code and circuit in case anyone was having trouble at https://mechatrofice.com/arduino/servo-motor/push-button-control
i find that setting the 1st pos to 70, and the second pos to 0, it works pretty well.

The code isn't fancy enough to warrant inclusion at this stage, it's just moving a servo 90 degrees one way, then 90 degrees back. Anyone who's willing to program an Arduino or Raspberry Pi can re-create and improve on it in 10 minutes time.

You should tilt the rocket down to go straight
And I don’t know how real you are trying to go but a estes rocket could be really cool using one of the mini engines with printed fins and a nose cone but good mechanical deign

There aren't many good screenshots to be had of how these mini rockets look while docked, but looking at what I can see in the movies and the Hot Toy's model I think having them at some angle is more accurate than having them lay level with the rest of the plating.

At this time I don't have an interest in making it launch actual rockets. There'd be a lot more work needed to safely launch hobby rockets, and with so many small plastic pieces in the design there's a decent chance that the mechanisms would melt in ways that would make it harder to open/close. If someone wants to remix this design to include those safety features and make it out of some other material they're more than welcome to though.

Nice I am tinker on that idea
Ps or laser pointer or laser diode or something like that
Ps #2 the mechanical deign you made could be pretty cool on a desk like it has USB that pops up and down or a outlet to plug in to
