It seems like you got your answer, but to others with the same problem submit a rule clarification to your state asking the dimensions. Sometimes, however, the state might not know where it will be held until only a short time before the competition.

Danielle, if you were 3rd last year, are you one of the twins? :?:



Thank you. And yupp. :D

Danielle:

I hope your dad will be helping time again this year. I was the guy weighing motors last year. As I recall, your plane missed the beams in the I.M. Gym by inches a few times last year, so I would say that height was just about perfect! :D Good luck this year. I hope to be helping John Clapp again.

I was just noticing on soinc.org that the summer institute lists helicopter/glider as courses. Does anyone know if that means C may get helicopter and B get glider and will it be balloon launch, catapult or towline glider?

Most likely, Helicopter Duration Div C and Bottle Rocket Div B for next year. It can of course change, but not likely at this late date. There may be other events like glider run as trials since we'll be bringing that back in a few years.
