At 2013 regionals for NorCal, the egg drop was outside. The wind blew ours a bit side to side, but the egg landed safely.
Yup you guys got first though, right?

Hehe, yea, I'm surprised you remembered. :)
I though our egg was completely cracked though, the device landed on its side. :?

If i drop my rotor and it gets say 4.5 seconds off of 5.5 meters, will the first 5.5 meters of a 15meter drop be the same 4.5 seconds, or will it be different. If so, is there anyway that an egg could drop 9meters in one second and still survive.
