By tube, do you mean a tower chimney type design?
Nope its a literal tube. :)
How does that work? Rolling balsa sheet? Just getting an extra light balsa dowel and screwing a hole in the end?

I agree, don’t you need a flat surface to connect tension to compression?
Personally, I wouldn’t try to overdo the design. Trying to put tension sticks on a curved surface seems too complicated. I tend to stick with a simple design and just trying to get that to get maximum efficiency with that boomi mass, then trying to dial down the boomi mass.

Wait how was first place 1200, and 20th and 21st both higher at around 1700.

Bolt for the block was too short so they were tiered for it, even after they were told it was ok

So if 1200 was the score after the tier, how did they still get first?
