Rotor Egg Drop at Nationals is at Russ Lobby & 144 at Wright State. Does anyone know if this is indoors or outdoors? How tall is the drop height?
Maybe they used the same location at the Wright State Invite?
Indoors, 3 stories off a balcony, 14-16m

Thank you. It's awesome that it's indoors!
I've never had an outdoor drop. What are they like?

Ive only dropped them outside once, but there was one team at regionals (ya it was a long time ago) whose rotor egg drop got carried by the wind and crashed into the building next to where they were dropping them....I guess outdoors it is more nerve racking....

Yup...I'm glad that at nationals they are doing it indoors...so that takes away the worry of wind and stuff (even though there are probably air vents)

The nonlucky teams will drop when the building heats up.Then, they turn on the A/C. Sucks that competition is in May.

In Madison in 2011, our teams bottle rocket got blown onto a slanted roof by the wind , but after 13 seconds rolled off, and the timers didnt stop timing. We got third because of it.
