Ok I helped my schools hover team, and shielding is a safety requirementso I don't know how that would be cheating.
Well, I don't know anything about hovercraft so maybe they didn't have shielding? The point is that our hovercraft team was really po'ed
I can deny... my brother built the hovercraft so I saw it undergo its many iterations and I can attest that it did have shielding. I can also attest that’s it was a disaster, much to my disappointment and also entertainment to watch them try and figure out what was wrong with it.
What they might’ve been mad about was that they ripped of the inflated skirt to allow for more lift (which is what finally got it to work after 4 failed runs lmao), but this year it wasn’t a requirement to have an inflated skirt, just last year.
Yeah there was no skirt requirement, but if they didn't have shielding on the bottom that might be it.
