Portuguese Abstract: The drag generated by the fins attached to a model rocket was studied experimentally. Rocket models (designed for 100 meters of apogee) were tested in a didactic wind tunnel in two situations: with straight and angular fins (at 5° and 10°), under wind speeds of 3, 4, 5 and 6 m/s. The results obtained experimentally were compared to the results of the theoretical analysis, allowing a better understanding of the effect of the fins.
