It would help if there could be views of rooms where events are taking place on the website especially for events like wright stuff and helicopters to plan for how high the ceiling will be. I know that some kids on my team have been trying to figure that out.
The story of the epic fail PSL blade
We cut it with an X Acto, threw it on the floor, it got an amazing score, but it was 1 millimeter too small. Then, it fell, the wing broke off, we reglued it, and it fits the rules and gets our high score. And it got us a bronze medal at Nationals.

I am fairly certain that Wright Stuff will be in the Armory (or former armory), with a 98 foot ceiling.

I sincerely doubt that there will be any limiting factors for Wright Stuff, which should make it really incredible!

Mister Scott Schmucker, it was a wonderful idea for you to make this thread! :D

I'd love to see that Trajectory thing, too. It would be like synchronized swimmers, only cooler. xD

" When completed the Armory was the largest free-span, no center support system, structure in the world. The “drill hall” now referred to as the main floor, measures 200 feet by 400 feet with a ceiling height of 98 feet."

I must say, this was a great tournament. Very well run. Except the swap meet would have been better, say, on the quad. But overall, very nice job!
