    I know how you feel about the scoring. I feel with the challenges, everyone wins when they happen.
    We (the FT community) have another avenue/ more planes/ more plans/ stronger community.

    Um... when is the deadline then? July 12th, 2018?

    If so...

    cool catan concept. alliteration.

    also lol $10? haha. it would cost a couple thousand to make that happen. and that is not including the wrecked ones.

    Hey $10 is $10.... I'm glad to see your entry! Also the deadline is the 12th, for everything, I updated the first post as well.
    There isn't anything a little packing tape and hot glue can't fix.

    the only problem i see is with scoring. you might as well not include me because i most likely will not be at ff and i do not have an altimeter.

    I think height measurement might be an issue, I have an altimeter that Ill be bringing to flitefest for those who are there. For those who do not have one you will be exempt from that part of the scoring.

    Daniel Don't let that stop you. I'll be surprised if mine doesn't turn sideways at launch. I've shot 2 rockets ever. 1 was a 2 liter rocket.

    Both went up. None-looked like a 1950's space rocket.

    Don't worry about it, this challenge is more about fun than anything else. Plus it's just that, a challenge, to push the limits of foam board.

    haha. i might have a slight advantage considering my hobby before i got into rc was rocketry. i have 6 rockets (5 that i can launch, one needs fins bc apparently the recover system included ejecting half of the rocket), 3 launch stands, 2 functional launch controller, and- lets see- one C6-5 and two A10-3T rocket engines (i did a big launch day with my 4H club a few months ago where i went through about $25 worth of engines. this is all i have left at the moment) i will try to attach a picture of the remnants after.

    thats my bucket of stuff after

    i laid out some stuff on my bed after. yummy sulfur smell for a week after.

    **file upload keeps failing. sorry no other pictures.

    edit: just wanted to note i did rockets for a long time. since i was like 8. most of them flew away. recently i have had better luck. needless to say, my collection would be 3 times as large if i had recovered them all over the years.

    I also got into rockets at a young age and even have a gold one that used film to take pictures at apogee. Really cool when I was 5. Then I build some out of cardboard tubes I had lying around and I still haven't lost one yet. Although I did have to make a new friend to get one out of a gutter but that's a story for a different time.
