I think 3rd-10th place was all 22 second rockets, if memory serves.

We got 14th with a ~20 second rocket (maybe a few hundredths less or more).


3rd- 10th was not near 22s. We were 3rd with 26. I think 6 was around 24s.[/quote]

Ah okay. I remember reading the "unofficial leaderboard" right after we went, so that may have not been updated...

Sorry for the double post, but you need to stop asking this. You've asked this 4 or 5 times. You'll probably see some of the top rockets in the best of 2011 photo gallery sometime soon. All the top rockets pretty much looked the same. Either a long cone or a long tube for the nose. Their fins were tilted or the bottoms of the fins were angled for the rocket to spin upon takeoff. They were all built of the lightest materials possible for max height.

Sorry. I am WAY too lazy to check the Gallery. Lol.

They have used one liter bottles before because i remember they are a pain to find so i hope they stick with two liters

!!! Then you could give it to me! lol

We usually don't drink soda either; the most we've had (and probably will ever have) is during the bottle rocket construction, where we needed to empty out the bottles. Aw man, I wish I had that bottle of Mountain Dew again :)

Being part of the bottle rocket team, of course I'm going to say yes :P

But honestly, I think so. :)

During tests, ~25.

At nats, I think our best was ~20. (I kept hitting the "3" button instead of the "2", i wish that was really true!)

I didn't do anything until the comp. Yeah it was pretty much my partner doing everything and me as a placeholder.

NICE! lol

Likewise, my partner did most of the constructing and coming up with the ideas...but I mostly did the testing. The fun part :D
