Scores Discussion

The top few scores at Forsyth Central today were all just under 30 points. The longest single flight was somewhere between 9 and 10 seconds. I don't know the exact height of the ceiling, but it was likely around 25-30 ft.

Anyone know what the best sec/ft possible this year and any designs that would be good?

1 to 1.3 seconds per foot sounds nationally competitive to me.

1.3 is on the high end of my estimates for sure.

0.8 seconds per foot of height in the location that you're flying is pretty good. 1.2 seconds per foot will probably be nationally competitive.
