Need some guidance on how to approach the following scenario

Object : 200 grams

movement axis : x, y, z

distance : 20 meters

speed : 70 to 150 kmph adjustable.

The plan is to have 3 motors on a jig to control the movement on 3 axis.
The issue is to reach 50 m/s speeds and braking.

alternatively is to look at magnetic tunnel but the power requirement
adn control seems expansive.


Any suggestion on a motor that is available that can reach 50 m/s
over 20 meters? the Y axis and z axis motors will be driven by the
x axis motor hence the object weight will be more when it
comes to the x axis motors which moves the jig across 20mts
at 50 m/s

appreciate any guidance on the same

Welcome to the PF.

Maybe use a model rocket motor?
