Re: Gravity Vehicle 20-21

As many teams have extra time (no winding mousetraps, no setting up a launcher, no batteries) it would be interesting to have more than 1 target points - perhaps three. Teams would be given the same time (8 minutes) to complete 3 runs. The distances can be chosen between 9m-12m vertically, but in a...

Re: Gravity Vehicle 20-21

Well this is just great. I typed up a whole multi paragraph length response, accidentally reloaded the page, and in frantically trying to reload all the page and submit, i lost all my text and ended up posting yours three times. This is me giving up typing my idea up. Very sorry for those three post...

Gravity Vehicle 20-21

I know there is still a major debate over what aspects of the rules are being kept next year, but I'm still interested in hearing what others would like to see in this event next year, if the rules were to change. Personally, I think a really interesting and fun rule change could be a target line fo...

Re: Boomilever B/C

Hey guys, I built a boomilever that I was hoping would hold 12 to 15 kg, but it failed at 8kg in tension. I was using 3/32 basswood tension sticks, which I used last season to good results.

Re: Wright Stuff C

I think people more often refer to the CG being some distance behind the front wing post or ahead of the rear wing post, not the center of the wing. However, I have observed many FF kit planes fly with very low decalage. I highly doubt that anyone has the center of their wing behind the CG, because ...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!

It seems to me that since your tension pieces are mounted to the bottom of you box beam, and the block is on the top of it, the wood/bracing between the two got crushed between the two. You could fix this by reinforcing the vertical connection between the top and bottom of the box beam in the area d...
