Re: Helicopter Flight Times

Neither team used one bladed rotors for bonus.

Did they use freedom flight kits or their own design/ did they have an interesting configuration?

Re: 2017 National Tournament: Wright State University

What's the best way to transport builds to nationals from far away? usually we ship our stuff, but we need to ship like 35 lbs of counterweights for Robot Arm which is not fun for our wallets... also Towers/Helicopters are bad to ship, but last year TSA officials got rough and made our Wright Stuff...

Re: Helicopter Flight Times

Oh yeah, to keep it on topic, at our Regionals this past Saturday, I got a time of 2:19 for first place! It was at a ceiling about 20 feet high, and I built basically straight from this year's FFM kit. Good job! What was the configuration of your FFM copter? We've been getting around 1:45 w/ 2top 2...

Re: Helicopters C

Just wondering, which has given you better times: stationary top and rotating bottom or both rotating? I wanted to switch over to both rotating because I was under the impression that the body would then count for the bonus if you attached a small rotor on it, but now i'm a bit unsure about that. ....

Re: Helicopters C

Our helicopter appears to fly alright, but it always lands with more than half of the rubberband's winds remaining. Does anyone know why this may possibly be and what could be done so that the helicopter makes use of all of its winds? Either you need to shorten the length of ur motor or increase th...

Re: Helicopter Flight Times

getting a four minute flight would be synonymous with breaking a record because the national record for a junior competition without a weight or diameter limit yield around a 6 minute flight. I would say that the maximum time that is possible is a little bit over 3 minutes and that itself is a stret...
