Maybe 100 was a bit over but id still say at least 80 because we tested ~7 times every other day after we finished just to make sure nothing broke because somebody could've knocked it over. And we checked right before we impounded.
ok, then my second thought ask (the people that dropped it for you) about the air vents.
He said it assumed its normal path and didnt even know there were air vents.
I dropped it, and air vents may have been there, I couldn't tell. It did show signs of gettin hit by air at one point, (a bad, quick wobble that quickly stablized) and some other teams all drifted the same direction. Other than that it looked normal. Slow and steady falling, it didnt speed up, but at the same time it looked more like 10 meters than 15.

Also it got nearly the same time exactly as what we get when testing with a 9.6 meter drop.

Don't know but almost all of the ones I watched were obviously using parachute drag and not auto gyro. One that was well over 10 seconds rotated maybe 10 times on the way down. Almost all of the top ten would have been tier 2 at our state. They probably should change the name to parachute egg drop.
