Re: Flight Times and/or Videos

Our team flies right at 3:00 from 22' in practice. At the San Diego regionals, with slightly turbulent air, they won with a time of 2:40 from 20'.

Re: Interested in F1D?

More progress has been made with the construction document, and many more photos have been uploaded. There are also a number of continuing posts on how to fly the F1D. I believe we will field a full junior team for the 2016 world championship in Romania. https://nffsblog.wordpress.com/2015/06/14/f1d...

Re: 2016 rules

In my humble opinion, I think many of the SO competitors are ready for a next challenge: the use of variable pitch propeller (VP). The design, construction, and operation of the VP is a great engineering challenge. It's perfect for the low-ceiling flying encountered by most students in their gyms. Y...
