Does anybody know what the height for the SoCal state tournament is for Ping Pong Parachute?
Thanks!

I believe that they changed it to outdoor this year, so there is no room height.

I'm curious for the people flying outside, how high have people been able to get the rocket to go? What's the best way to get the most height? Just reduce weight?

Our state tournament will be in a 90ft high facility so I'm thinking ahead to how we take advantage of that height.

lol i don't think anyone could possibly get tiered. You could probably focus on making your rocket as streamlined and light as possible and try to get it to go as high as you can with 65 psi.

That's my plan, just didn't know how high it could get. Figured the outside fliers in socal have been doing this all season and might have some tips.

Northern California runs outdoors, not SoCal

Yeah, NorCal is outdoor. The location for the tournament is indoors.
