I'm pretty sure they didn't have saftey rules back then. I guess things have improved.

I might be wrong, but I seem to remember that there was more information on the wiki page.. I may be wrong. However I'm psyched for this event! Since this is my first post of the new season, good luck everyone!

I was just wondering... Overall I'm excited for this event though its going to be a lot with scrambler as well. Im really interested in starting and seeing how prototypes work. I foresee a lot of issues with consistency but I guess that'll be the fun part cause the majority of what I have done is car events.

Whoever edited the wiki, Airjectory =/= Air Trajectory. The trial event at nationals last year was not the event that is being held this year.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
You should only create problems, that only you know solutions to.

It's very similar. However, the reason we changed the name was because there was another trial event several years ago named Airjectory that involved 1 liter bottles which is quite different from this year's event (which we trialed at nationals last year)

Yeah, I don't think it's really that big of a deal. However chinesesushi, if you would like to sit down and type out a separate page for Airjectory, be my guest.

So excited about Air Trajectory.

Looking at the older images for the airjectory and was wondering if there are examples of prototypes from prior events if someone can share.

Cheers

I just got the rules for Air Trajectory (yay!). I just wanted to make sure I understood the rules correctly (Not a clarification, just want to make sure I understand). Construuction rules state that the allowable energy to power launch equals the falling force of 5000 Kg... This means gravity right? Meaning the real force would be 5000 Kg multiplied by the force of gravity, right?

Any parts of your device that decrease in potential energy when triggered must have a mass less than 3.500 kg (Div. C) or 5.000 kg (Div. B).
