Re: 2019 Princeton University Invitational

I was an event supervisor also (Water Quality haha) and I have to say that PUSO treats their event supervisors really well! Would highly recommend any grads to apply to supervise at Princeton next year, the tournament is run super smoothly and very low stress at least from my end

Re: Scoresheets: tournament management software

I'm not aware if Ezra or Avogadro do automatic awards presentation generation, someone let me know if they do! Scoresheets is also free and I plan on open sourcing it eventually since much of my initial motivation for making this was to make running tournaments easier and cheaper.

Scoresheets: tournament management software

Hi scioly.org, I've been working on a web app that helps tournament directors manage tournaments, called Scoresheets . This is something I've been working on for a while and now I've decided to share it with the community! An early prototype was run at UT Invitational 2017 and UT Regionals 2018, and...

Re: Too light and how to fix it?

Our plane weighs around 5.3 grams and it's WAY to light to be able to compete, is there anything we can do to make it heavier or do we have to start over? This is good! You can use the extra mass to start playing around with the plane's center of gravity to adjust its flight pattern. Also you if th...

Re: National Test Discussion

Dynamic Planet C - this was the hardest test I've ever taken, and was pretty surprised with the result. I really enjoyed the fact that it had little to no random trivia and rather focused on application of theory/concepts and practical knowledge. Overall a very good test and well run event overall! ...

FF kit with minor modifications to pitch and bearings, improvement mostly came from lots of testing though

Re: 3 Sided Tower?

A 3 sided tower's legs will be longer, and will need to be stronger than 4-legged tower's legs to support the same mass. One benefit of 3-legged towers is that the 3 legs will always be in contact with the surface so less fine sanding needed. It is definitely harder to build though since you probabl...

Re: Gaining Altitude

First, you need to make your plane as close to minimum weight as possible. If you aren't using a kit, it is a bit harder to build a lifting wing. You should research airfoils. Basically, you want your wing to have some curve in it, and for the leading edge of the wing (side facing front of plane) to...
