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).
Uh You know I mean 30+ without bonuses >_>
Do the North Carolina scores include the bonuses or no?

Uh very good, :shock: :D If you look at the numbers from last year in North Carolina you could medal at nats with that number.

It would probably be more helpful to us then to you cause you probably aren't going to change anything so timing won't make any difference beside giving you an idea of how good your rocket is.

does anyone wish to share their parachute deployment system?
i've had trouble with the rocket nosediving without separating because of the weight of the cone

got fifth at regionals. my parachute didn't deploy so one egg was scrambled but the other one survived. Our team got third so we're headed down to lansing in May for state. See all you Michiganders there! :D

I have the same problem as hummer93. No matter how I fold my parachute (i've tried the accordion style some of you have suggested, and others i've found on this thread), the parachute refuses to come out of the nose cone. How exactly is your nose cone made? Is it tapered to an end, because the parachute just refuses to come out and catch air. If anyone could give some small hints, I'd really really appreciate it, as regionals are this saturday. :D
