Times and sec/ft

Post by sciolyperson1 » November 24th, 2019, 2:58 pm

What times have teams been achieving thus far? A lot of people are having trouble with parachute deployment consistency, whether or not it be with a folded or draped parachute, so agressiveness vs. consistenty plays a role in this event as well.

I saw a 13sec flight on Sat at our first meet. I think they won, but I'm not sure. Ceiling was 24ft I think.

Deployment is the big issue. I saw many go up and come down with the chute still attached.

But both divisions are the same... lol :lol: So I would assume that to be for whatever division you are in. Also remember that times vary by region/school so a best time of 13 second might not be the best time in your region. (Or it could be an insane time in your region).

What times do y'all think will end up being top-tier at nats this year (just setting like a standard ceiling height of 20 ft as an example)?

I don't have too much experience with predictions, but maybe 17 seconds?
