Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

Merry Christmas!

My parachute diameter is eighteen inches since I found a produce bag for fish at Whole Foods, but I can't seem to find anything bigger than that.

Re: Ping Pong Parachute B/C

I've been using produce bags as my parachute material, but I can't seem to get above about 15 seconds in my 20-foot gym. Any ideas for a better parachute material?

Re: Elastic Launched Glider B

Brian,

Thank you so much for the advice! I tried the shin today and it worked great! I got about 24 seconds in my gym so that was a improvement of 7 seconds. Much appreciated.

Re: Elastic Launched Glider B

Brian, On both of my flaps, the trailing, middle edges of the foam are about an inch lower than the trailing middle edges of the balsa wings, I don’t really know how to explain the deflection of my rudder, but I’ll try.

Re: Elastic Launched Glider B

Launch angle up is around 70 degrees, my plane turns right, the bank angle is 0 degrees but if I try to bank it to the right a little more it just rolls over, weight is about 4.2 grams, launch height is around 22 feet and the time is consistently around 17 seconds

Thanks,
Max

Re: Elastic Launched Glider B

I have been having trouble with my transition. The glide is extraordinary, but the transition at the top isn't great. The plane looks like it will transition well, but then it dips down and loses about five feet before it finally snaps into its good glide. Any tips?

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle B

I'm having trouble with my Mouse Trap Vehicle. The fishing line I'm using for it keeps slipping on the back axel. Any suggestions?
