Has anyone found a sturdy box that fits within carry-on size restrictions and can hold an FF heli? I can't seem to find one online.

Just use a small sized reinforced cardboard box from Home Depot or something like it.

Ye, I think as long as you block wind from it and you are not shaking it this should be fine! Even if it seems like too large of a box.

Lotta crashes into the walls. I did not get many times, as I was in WS most of the day.

Our team won with 3:11. I had heard that Troy was right at 3, maybe slightly better than that, and they took third.

It was a standard racquetball court. 20 feet?

The width was an issue for many teams. We had same for region and state.

I believe biggest factor was altitude, but that was advantage for us as we live at same altitude.

Coach Chuck
I can confirm that width was an issue - an imperfect launch caused the heli to pin itself to the side wall and slide down, resulting in slightly less than a minute. We ended up with 32nd...which goes to show just how many teams had some sort of struggle like this.

On another note, congrats on the win to your students, Coach Chuck! I honestly wasn't too surprised to see your team perform so well. :)
