In my invitationals the 1st place winner had time of around 20 secs. I was surprised at the time. But the top 5 scores were 15-20 with like i said around 20 secs as the 1st place winner.

How's testing going for everyone? I've been finetuning my parachute that I mentioned earlier on in this thread and today it just achieved a new record.

38 seconds in 27ish feet or 1.4 s/foot

Though, I feel like this record may be partly due to luck as I was testing in a gym with HVAC and the drafts may have been pushing up slightly giving it more time.

Nice! Really impressive!

Had some good testing this weekend. 24 sec in 27ft once. Consistantly 20 - 21sec in 27ft. HVAC definitely makes a difference.

21 in a 21. It’s really hard to get the deployment right.
Carbon Fiber and glue are all you need for flying events


My friend says build events are easy. Trying to prove him wrong.

My most recent test was a 10.1 g boom and it held like 14 ish kg. I'm pretty sure I know the problem though so hopefully I'll be expecting to get down to like 9.5 g in the next couple of weeks.

I'm amazed by your progress in Boomilever! 10 g in such a short time is unbelievable! At this rate, you will be at 8 g in no time!
