Congratulations!
thanks, it's been a wild ride :)

If I may ask did you use the FF kit or a completely different design?

FF kit with minor modifications to pitch and bearings, improvement mostly came from lots of testing though

It would be very helpful if the Nationals Event Supervisor or some other knowledgeable person could post the to teams (maybe top 10?) And their flight times.

As a coach to four high schools in mid-Michigan, I find this type of information to be excellent motivational material for future teams.

Thanks,

Brian Turnbull

Sorry, this response is really late, but I recall that Mentor HS said that their Helicopter got somewhere around 2:17 at Nats. They got 7th, so I guess that's a fairly accurate point to shoot for a likely top 10 time.
