Re: ​W​r​i​g​h​t​ ​S​t​u​f​f​ ​C​

New York is doing the virtual STAR program so all build events will not be running at least for the regional/state competitions, I'm not sure about invitationals. Last year/this year's rules were rough but I'm still going to miss it, broken props, torn covering, planes stuck in basketball hoops/ligh...

Re: Wright Stuff C

What do you think next years rules will be like based on past patterns. Typically it's been a 2-year event rotation for rubber powered balsa flight events, so I'm wondering if they'll make it electric wright stuff (since it's been a trial event in recent years). Maybe they'll bring back the dime bo...

Re: 2020 Friendly Science Competition

I would question the majority if the build events, not because of the feasibility of running them, but because of how specific the "event requirements" would have to be. I understand how much time, effort, and money has been spent on devices, but it would most likely be a infringement on ...

Re: 2020 Friendly Science Competition

For certain build events like ping pong parachute and Wright Stuff I think it'd be possible to have a virtual competition by sending in videos. At the beginning clearly show that the plane meets specs (measure the prop, wings, etc. show the weight on a scale), have no cuts, and clearly show the wind...

States in a week, ping pong parachute launcher just arrived, plane is currently still broken, gravity vehicle is nonexistent, advisor was disappointed at regionals, and I still can't consistently identify between tyrannosaurus and allosaurus :D

Re: Gravity Vehicle C

Can anyone advise me on how to reduce friction in ball bearings. I bought open ones and then put them in wd40. They are still not that free. Any advice? Thanks You may want to try cleaning out the bearing before wd40? If you have lighter fluid or acetone (nail polish remover), pour some into a cup ...
