Re: Replaying Events for 2021

Personally, I'm looking forward to the events being the same. I know a lot of people put a ton of love and work into their events and wouldn't want it to end like this. For builds, the rules definitely have to change. I would not want everyone to perfect everything over the summer. They would just n...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Alright, some updates here on my progress. I have finally broken out of my 1:30 trap LOL, reached 1:40 today both ways. Here's the funny thing, after testing bi planes and tri-blade propellers for so long, I still can't build them perfectly for them to be efficient. Thus, after some redesigning, I ...

Re: Wright Stuff C

How do you stop a plane from barreling? Are there anyways to keep the tightness of the turn more consistent and not have the plane crash inward when "climbing"?

Re: Wright Stuff C

We were trimming the other day and something interesting happened. I'm sorry that we don't have a video, we weren't recording at the time. Our plane started to climb but the radius was too big. It hit (sort of grazed) the wall and instead of recovering, it dived straight down to the ground and the ...

Re: Wright Stuff C

I would like to know also. Word must be out by now. All I'm able to glean is that effective ceiling height is 28 feet and Troy High School got the top times. I'm guessing at 28 feet, they might have gotten over 2 minutes. Idk troys time but i do know that 2 minutes flat will place u at about 8-10th...

Re: Wright Stuff C

Hi everyone! I've built the Freedom Flight kit as a monoplane and have been having some trouble getting it to turn in both directions. Strangely enough, the plane likes to turn clockwise and can fly fairly well in that direction. However, when I attempt to have the plane turn counterclockwise, it n...

Re: Wright Stuff C

For an event where time is unlimited, I think risking breakage is mandatory. Luke knows he's sacrificing 5-10 seconds of flight time by winding conservatively, but he's understandably concerned about launching twice in the allowed time frame and having to deal with an unexpected motor failure. He t...

Re: Wright Stuff C

to add onto the first para, it also depends on winding technique :D To wind, I typically stretch it to about 3 times its length, wind to about 75% of the full torque then walk into the length of the plane while winding. I finish up winding slowly and dewind ~ 100 turns. Stretching longer than 3x it...
