At my regional some team got over Ward's time (not sure by how much, but I heard it was closer to 4 minutes) with a chinook :shock:

Was it the raw time score? Or with bonuses added?

How much time do you think is necessary to place well at regionals. Im competing in NC if that makes a difference.

Depends on who else is there. A Chinook over 1 minute is pretty much a guaranteed medal, but you could probably medal with a good coaxial at most regionals.

In NM, the competition in Heli was limited. We turned in 2:23, in a racquetball court. Unfortunately, the HVAC in that court was on and made for very strong drift to one corner, and once the heli hit the corner it went into a death slide to the ground. Second place was 37 seconds.

I would expect other regions to be more competitive.

I had my C team fly my A team's coaxial from last year (20 cm rotor width) and they placed 10th at Regionals with a flight time of a little over 40 seconds. At the Regional level, a one minute coaxial should get you a medal.

NY Lake Niagara regional first place raw time 1 min 20 seconds, however there was the black surface bonus, chinook bonus, and also the 3 minute setup bonus I believe. Second place raw time 1 min 5 seconds, with black surface bonus, chinook bonus, and 3 minute setup bonus.

My region isn't too competitive, however.

I would suggest that anyone posting times also mentions ceiling height. Thanks very much for the info.
