I was at ggso as well, what school are you from

edit:

Also here's the time breakdown

1st-3:12-bonus unknown
2nd-2:50-2:56, some debate over actual time, bonus unknown
3rd-5th, 2:44-2:40, 3rd bonus unknown, 4-5th all bonus. These places were very close, both Camas Red, 4th, first flight, and Tokay Purple, 5th, second flight, getting planes stuck
6th, somewhere in the 2:30, all bonus, plane stuck

edit 2:

many teams below top 6 were not breaking 2 minutes, with all bonus, and somewhere in the 30s not breaking 1 minute with all bonus

I didn't see 1st or 2nd, 3rd had one touch iirc, 4th was a stuck plane, then a no touch, 5th was a bunch of hits, one that sent then all the way to the ground, but was able to recover and get back up, second flight seemed strong but got stuck on a speaker at the top, 6th was a lot of hits with the wall and various obstructions, also a plane landing on the proctor table for flight 1 followed by a stuck plane on the same speaker for flight 2

A lot of teams ended up hitting the basketball hoops, normal, but they had flags hanging that caused many planes to fall until they were below the flag, and then have to recover from there. Also, the air draft was relatively bad, due to the fact the AC system was computer controlled by the university, and they had set it to automatic, meaning the AC would randomly come on during some flights, and some had none at all. On top of that, they had an open door to lead into the field house, with some mild-medium winds throughout the day

Do you have a rough estimate on ceiling height?

30 ft is what I was told, but you can check the official height on the website or rsf fieldhouse at Berkley

Just wondering if all placing teams used FFM kits?

Tbh I was wondering the same thing. The mass majority of teams were using FFM kits. Tokay and Mountain View used FFM kits. Although not placing Mira Loma as well used FFM

Width and length were pretty spacious. Girders were nasty above 18 feet.

I suppose. At SOUP, I saw maybe 6 planes get stuck in the girders. One of which, involved its team having to throw tennis balls at it trying to get it down.

lmao that was so fun to watch
they had to whip out like all kinds of balls
and then eventually they just taped together some sticks and pushed it out
there were a couple vents too but they werent all that strong later in the day
also ngl the supervisors did a kinda poor job like supposedly they didnt even look for the bonuses (panel) for the first two time slots
and they let ppl off the hook a lot
for a v good invite i kinda expected more, but it wasnt like awful
just needed some improvements
honestly, it's not about the medals. go out there and have fun. make progress, learn a few things, have one heck of a time, because that's all that matters.
