Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

That's a negative on the successful deployment. We have tried folding, rolling up, sitting on top and draping over but nothing has been consistent. In our tests yesterday we had deployment a few time but it was very late almost halfway thru fall about 10-12 feet off the ground. A lot of people are ...

Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

I actually did this event as a trial two years ago and we were only allowed to load to 40psi. I found that this gets it up pretty high and we got about 13-15 second launches. I'm hoping to get 30ish second launches this year! good luck everyone! I am helping to coach this event and we are not getti...

Re: Rule 5.g: Hitting the ceiling

I had a doubt about the rule about the rocket hitting the ceiling. Say the Event Supervisor defines the ceiling as the lowest hanging object from the ceiling (ex: nets or something like that) and a team goes up, launches their rocket, but the rocket exceeds the height of the "ceiling" (defined as t...

Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

PPP world record!! 20+ minutes!!! I was dying to see how high my rocket would go at 65 psi. So I took it out to the football field after testing. It was really windy so I took a back up parachute and loaded it on. Set the pressure to 65 and let it rip. Rocket went up, deployed the chute, then it cru...

Anyways...
Has anyone measured the pitch of the new ikara props?
40deg 3.5 cm from the center. I modified the freedom flight pitch guage I had from last year. Not really sure where the proper measurement should be taken but that's where I have it now.
