Were they lift-based?
Were they 3d printed?
What material were they made of?
Did they extend to the center of the CD or only near the outside?
I'm also curious to know this. Also, anyone know the top voltage scores?
We came in 8th with 335 on low and 593 on high. Test was also ok (@ shadow flicker lol).

They were drag based, spanned the entirety of the radius (12.8 cm?), starting at 4 cm wide slowly narrowing out, and made of a pepsi bottle.

If you don't mind sharing how different was this from your States blade both performance and design-wise?

Also how successful were you in using soda bottle plastic? I used to use it but it curved too much so I switched to frozen pizza boxes.

They were the exact same blades as states. I'm not sure what happened at states, but I don't think we let the blades reach peak capacity which hurt us a lot.
