I'll probably buy the new props soon as well. I'll test them next weekend and let y'all know how it goes.

Our regionals is next Saturday, so we've done everything we can. Reliable for us is 1'35" each way. We can get upwards of 1'50" each way but only with a conscious decision to increase risks (wider radius, skimming rafters, aft CG/low decalage, aggressive winding). To get two minutes at 25 feet we need all of the above plus one or two hits.
The biggest problem we face is actually that Luke will not hesitate to take those risks. He won his invitationals with huge luck, and he seems stubbornly oblivious to that fact. I keep telling him to fly conservatively but in the end, it's his call. I don't go, to avoid arguing with him and stressing him out.
If he can get to State, he won't be bound by room dimensions, so it'll boil down to how aggressive he's willing to wind. If that happens, we know we can get over 50 feet/2'20" both ways, but IMO it's unlikely we'll get there. We have two 2000 boomilevers and a 12-16 second pingpong at 25 feet, but the gravity car isn't any good and a lot of the testing events are still just folks filling in (warm bodies) . We'll see; wish him luck, er, I mean, tell him not to rely on luck.
Thank you! Good luck at regional's! How many teams can qualify for state?
I wanna say 11?
