Re: Best material for parachue?

do you guys think fishing line for parachute cord is a bad idea? I feel that sewing thread is quite thin. I've tried both, I don't really like either.

Re: Parachute Payload System

In the rules it says “the ping pong ball attached to the parachute assembly makes up the parachute payload system.” Does this mean that taping things like coins or extra weight onto the ball is not allowed?

Re: North Carolina 2020

Piedmont Invitationals is in 8 days!!! I can't wait. Does anyone have a list of teams attending? I especially want to know if WAAS is going, because I think they sent their B or C team to O'Neal. We (WAAS) are going, and we sent our JV team to O'Neal, :D I was wondering why WAAS only sent one team

Re: Music!

My playlist consists primarily of metal and hip hop.

Weird mix but it works for my commutes on the bus.

We are using plastic folders to cut out the fins, and we are making our fins pretty small, and I've noticed that other teams use bigger fins. So could someone pls suggest a succesful materiala a...

Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

Does anyone know how to reinforce the parachute to keep it from folding inwards?
It's all about how you position your strings on the parachute, the material you use to adhere said strings, and the length of the strings
