Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

8.6 meters high, 28.75m long, 13.85m wide how would times of 22-23s fair? Is this information pertaining to nationals or where you practiced and got 22-23 seconds? I'm not flying at nationals, but just wondering how those times compared, since that's what most of the teams who got medals got at Sta...

Re: Scrambler C

one of my coaches said I shouldn't use the balsa backstop since it was being dented... so I just drilled two holes for where the two horizontal wooden dowels are, on a birch 1/64" plywood, and glue that onto the front face of the backstop. It is probably now just over 1/2"...but it should be pretty ...

Re: Scrambler C

I use nuts and get them close to bearing, with about .5mm of space. What do you think is "rigid"? I used two 1/4" thick balsa pieces to make my backstop. (much lighter than some piece of lumber) However, I'm afraid it is too soft?.. I broke two eggs, and now there is a very very slight indent on the...

Re: Scrambler C

wow, 100grams!
The most benefit would seem from spring launcher..the car would really fly :D
I dont believe I would be able to make a spring launcher, so I'm just building a pulley launcher.
I'd love to see a spring launcher in action at competition tho..or even videos :)

Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

I one-bladed rotor egg drop could work...correct?
Add mass to other side to balance(concept: use integral of distance*mass and make sure both sides are equal)?

Or is this wayyy off for rotor egg drop...and I should start with 3, 4, or even more blades..
