Re: Rotor Egg Drop B

does anyone know a good way to attach the cup to the rotor device? I personally use string, but I'm sure there are better ways. does anyone know the winning rotor egg drop times for states/nationals for 2013? any links? I'd recommend looking at last year's thread.

It does not matter actually. As long as the device rotates, it should be fine. It is much more efficient for the rotors to be separated from the egg because it takes a lot more torque to spin the egg around with the device. Also, I have a queation for all of you guys.
