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 the SOinc ...

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...

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 ...
