Re: Scrambler C

If you keep the pencil and pin inside of an imaginary 1x1x.75 box. The event supervisor for nationals (brother nigel i want to say his name was) told me that your entire release needs to remain in that imaginary box. So i would suggest just dropping the pin off of your pencil as soon as you release.

Re: Scrambler C

So spring launchers are legal right? I just built one that works quite well but my partner is concerned that the conversion of energy makes it illegal. I also have yet to see one at a competition.
