ohio state had a probably 100-120 foot ceiling but its sloped with all kinds of obstructions. lots of teams heli's got stuck and it probably affected the results.
division C top score was 2:50ish i didn't see the flight and dont know which team it was
division B (trial) 2:55ish and once again didn't see the flight

the event supervisor ruled that if a helicopter's top prop got stuck and stopped turning that it was stuck and the flight was void/not counted in the score EVEN IF it came down like the FAQ states so the scores were a lot lower than what i would have expected

The French field house (where helicopters and other flight events have been held for years at OSU is ~47 feet tall at the peak, definitely not 100.

:o :shock: :? Did you see the helicopter? Was it a very unique design or did it get stuck and fall down or something?

at 3:48 it must of been a fluke flight. The conditions were favorable, maybe something just stuck for a bit and then came ajar but I dont believe for a second 3:48 happened as planned
