Yeah I know that... but invites aren't until January and we still have a lot of time to improve.Depending on ceiling height, I doubt if that will medal in your state. There probably will be many over 2 min with a few over 3 and in a high venue 4 is not out of the range of possibility.
How are you getting your times so high? I have about the same type of ceiling, and little air currents, but i have gotten my highest time to be 1:40Right now, my best time is about 3 minutes given that I have about a 2.5 story ceiling and little air currents. As long as you can mark your wing and control your climb, low ceilings don't seem to be a massive issue, besides the obvious problem of less descent time. Air currents on the other hand seem to be the worst problem that I have to deal with. You can have a 5 story high ceiling, but if there are bad air currents, a wright stuff plane usually has trouble fighting them.
It all comes down to if you know how to trim it. I was able to get 6th place at nationals( with a score of about 73) last year using the freedom flight model, but I saw some people at my state's tournament and other regional tournaments who could barely get 10 seconds per flight using the exact same model. The only difference is that I had trimmed my plane well enough and had tested it enough so that I knew exactly what it would do and how big its radius was.
