How do you think the Computer Exploration part of the test will work? What types of questions should we expect to see?
I think it will be testing the competitors ability to use jmol effectively within the time limit. So maybe a lot of identification questions?

Re: Wright Stuff C

Can someone explain to me the benefit of counter-clockwise as well as clockwise flight? Will the plane being able to fly in both directions just make trimming easier due to the weight, or will the plane actually be switching directions mid flight? Thank you all. The benefit is that you get score = ...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Did any of your regionals say that the prebuild is not even counted as part of the score? I am participating in the Bay Area regional on March 2nd and the director said that it wouldn't be considered. I feel so upset because my partners and I spent quite a bit of time on it. I just competed at my r...

Re: Freedom Flight Torque Meter

Hello all, After using the freedom flight torque meter for some time now, I am noticing that it has started to not work as well. Without any rubber the meter isnt at 0 and when we are winding with the rubber on it it doesn't seem to move much regardless of how many turns we put onto the motor. Due ...

Re: Rubber Motor lenght / Motor Stick length

Banil, The stock FF kit design has a high static stability margin and can accommodate a CG that is further back towards the stab. So, extending the motor stick one or two inches is unlikely to cause stalling issues. A long motor stick is more prone to bending due to motor tension though, and this i...

Re: Protein Modeling C

For the on site build, does every regional choose their own special sequence to model the protein or is it the same across the entire nation? I am asking this question because I saw the onsite build instructions from the MIT invitational. Also, how do you really practice for the on site build consi...

Re: Rubber Motor lenght / Motor Stick length

Basil, Yes, in general, you have one of the benefits of the long motor stick correct. If a longer stick allows a longer tail moment arm (essentially, the distance from the wing TE to the Stab LE), this moves the center of pressure more towards the stabilizer which allows, generally, the CG to be mo...
