Any other times over 2:10? What was the design of the winning helicopter? 4 Blade rotor upper and 2 blade lower? Single motor stick? Hollow tube motor stick? Two sticks on the side with the motor down the middle? Did they use thick (1/8") rubber or thinner 1/32" or less) We are stuck at 2 minutes.

Top time was 3:05, 15 teams were over 2:00. 45 teams were over 60 seconds.
There weren't any particularly crazy or unique designs, all were generally conventional. There will be a new wrinkle thrown in next year to mix it up and give you all a new challenge.

We got 1:16, and got 41st. We were never really competitive in Helicopters, as my partner and I, the same one for Meteorology, really should have stuck with study events.
Nationals 2013: Meteorology 2nd, Water Quality 7th, Dynamic Planet 28th, Helicopters 41st
Nationals 2014:Hydrogeology 8th, Game On 25th
