Thanks for asking Rob,
We just gained 5 new team members! We are planing to launch a Near Space Expedition On October 31 2008 8:00 am CST With a water recovery in the gulf of mexico. The launch site is the old 1982 Matagorda Island Launch site. We are atempting to Reopen a Launch Base there, it is an execellent place to establish safe opperations.
We will continue to post updates on the near space expeditions there are 3 planed. The Launch Clock is up and running for our attempt at winning the N-Prize and we are at T-222 days 40min. 10sec. and counting! We have team members working on the Mission T-Shirts and our website! Things are changing daily so stop in and keep up!

Try
www.v2rocket.com

http://www.v2rocket.com/start/others/reference.html

If anything the moderators of that site might be able to point you in the right direction.

Also the Redstone used exhaust vanes, so maybe look into that, I know the Smithsonian has acrhives on all kinds of things, don't know whether they would give out guidance info but it may be worth a try, send them an email they might have abit of info on the v2 and redstone.

Armadillo used vanes a while back. See their news updates from April and May, 2004.
