Alright to answer your question here are some times for Egg-O-Naut from North Carolina SO in 2007 http://www.sciencenc.com/Tournament_inf ... ourney.pdf
Looking at that if you can get your Egg to detach and everything, and stay aloft for 30+ seconds you shuold do very well
But I wuold go in steps starting with trying to get it up for 10 or 15 seconds
Hope this helps
I'll be adding this link to the wiki also
Actually here it is, if you wanna medal at nats 30+ is my best guess as to what you'll need
sorry for making double posts

I saw that before, it's just that trial events usually aren't taken too seriously and North Carolina isn't competitive (at least compared to New York).

At my regionals I got somewhere around 25-26 seconds and got 3rd. They wouldn't tell us our scores, but I counted about 7 or 8 seconds and both bonuses. I'd say all the scores were very close in the top 4 or 5 that had successful chute deployment. There weren't many teams that did so successfully though.

Without bonuses? Are you getting updrifts? What size parachute do you use?

There's only so high you can get on 60 psi.

At Athens(PA) Invitational, first place team got something like 24 sec. flight time but it landed on the roof of the gym, so the timers stopped short. It got the +3 and the +15. Is 42 seconds a good score?

Very good, I think. I have heard unsubstantiated reports of higher flight times, but I know a lot of competitions end like Andrewski's, with the winner well under 10 seconds without bonuses.

I haven't tested yet I was predicting what you'd need at nats

Do you guys take videos of your launches? I took some videos of my launches today and it helped a lot.
