Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

Does anyone know what the winning time was at Ohio State, and how high the ceiling was?
Again, always unofficial, but I personally timed the winning team as having 2 37 second flights. The French Field House is probably about 40 feet ish. Can someone else give a more accurate height?

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

Looking for an opinion...We've been playing around with different ideas, longer nose, larger wing (span), different wing position. Even mixing componants from different gliders. We have a glider now that has an absolute beatiful glide, slow, stable, reasonable sink rate, 3.5 grams. Great glide but ...

Re: Ongoing Contest(Scores)

For the Rustin Invitational in Pennsylvania, my partner (siciscio) and I are bringing a boomilever weighing 8.3 g. We haven't done any testing yet this year, so we don't know how we'll do. See some of you there? Seems a bit...risky. 8.3 is definitely the lightest I've heard of yet this year. All of...

Re: Ongoing Contest(Scores)

New to this discussion, but I was wondering what a good efficiency score is for division C? I can't seem to find any scores from past regional/state/national tournaments. I know for sure that it's pretty competitive in my state...but that's all. :| Well I got 850-ish at the Northmont Invitational i...

Re: Ongoing Contest(Scores)

WOO HOO! Went to regionals on Saturday! We did much better than anyone else, but there was some mix-up, and we did not even place! We talked to the event coordinator and they looked over the results today and it turned out we did get 1st place! We got 777 for our score for division B (that's relati...

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

15 grams is way too heavy of a glider for pretty much all ceiling heights. Seeing as we're going to be mainly competing in high school gyms, which have low ceilings, a target weight for your gliders would be between 2-3 grams, or even below 2 grams if your building is good and your balsa is at leas...

Re: Elastic Launched Glider C

Hi I am a student coach in OH and my team and I are having some difficulties during our test flights. One of our problems is that when we do some basic hand drops, our glider flies fine; when we launch the glider, it ascends beautifully, but the transition leads to the plane going into a nose dive....
