Re: Tweaks for 2021

Brian: How about they do something like the Scraps plane (living room flyer size), but limit the rubber? Could be fun! Half a gram is not hard to reach, but could make min weight 3/4 gram? Coach Chuck Chuck, That would be fun. Model boxes would smaller and cheaper too. Brian T I gotta say, this pla...

Re: What's Next???

EDIT: Nvm, the answer is probably no. Plastic too heavy anyways.

Re: Changes for next year

The draft across the room is certainly hard to eliminate. But I was trying to think of something that makes teams add features to a parachute that allows it to move horizontally as it falls. That's also just rng. An initial push of the parachute by the rocket is impossible to eliminate. Well... you...

Re: Wright Stuff C

One more question. For the wing covering, is microfilm the same thing as mylar? I see people in tutorials use microfilm for pennyplanes and F1Ds so I was wondering if I need to get some as I only have the mylar covering from Freedom Flight.

Re: Boomilever B/C

Just curious to see what's possible, how much do y'all's tension pieces weigh? (the tension pieces + the base) My design is about 2.7 grams but I'm trying to see if I can decrease that a bit... Xiangyu I've been fine with much less (around 1.5 g), and I'm purposely overbuilding that part do you hav...
