Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

but base of the device is still the device and if you have a wood block of 3/4 MDF made to hold the tee in position and still clear the 2.5cm of the tee, the wood block is considered Tee Base, so it's safe, but the bottom panel, in middle of the device is still within the 10cm of the golf ball... a...

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

Basically I plan on putting my tee in the bottom corner of the device attached to the base with no wall or anything within 10 cm. I think this is the only realistic way to meet the rules as written - the tee is in the "open" corner of the device. One suggestion, though - perhaps a small lip around ...

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

I too found the 'device' wording here confusing. If device means the entire build as described in the start of the rules, then the tee holder should be somewhere outside the boundary of the device (which I think we all agree is not the intent). But I think I read this like knight does, as no acting...

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

thanks for your reply... but i still find it a bit confusing in that the first mention of the word "DEVICE" is followed by "that delivered the ball to the tee" whereas the second mention of the word DEVICE can be interpreted as the entire device inclusive of every action and frame... "The part of t...

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

3d.ii states as follows: 3d.ii If the part of the DEVICE that delivered the ball to the tee is then automatically moved away so the ball is clearly unobstructed in all directions, an additional 150 pts will be awarded. The ball must stay on the tee and no part of the DEVICE except the tee and tee h...

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

Essentially, this prevents you from claiming, say, the rolling of the ball immediately after the Start Action as part of that 20 cm.
got it...

thanks again!

Re: Final Action: Putting the initial dropped ball to the tee

so rule regarding Final Action states: d.i. After all other planned scorable actions have been attempted, the golf ball from Start Action in 3.b. must be moved at least 20 horizontal cm from it's original resting position and placed on the golf tee... am i correct in interpreting this rule such that...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Several of us have built prototypes now, including ones for production. Flight times in the 60-70 second range without too much fiddling. They have very limited power and ANY hint of turbulence blows them out of the sky . Static margins are very low and it's hard to get sustained thrust of any reas...

Clarifying "Initiates the next action..."

Scorable Actions: For the most part, the rules are fairly easy to understand... but just want to get a better understanding of what they mean by "initiates the next action." Take for example, the following two action in sequence: Action 3 (domino) Action 2 (rotate a wheel and axle) If we find that t...
