Whoever can get there plane to lift the heaviest object and keep it in the air wins. And it must be a plane, no multicopters or helicopters. Makes it more interesting :black_eyed:

Hey Mountain,

Neat fixed wing challange, but can we mod that to a ratio of payload to AUW?

Doesn't seem right for a 20 lb plane lifting 1.5 lb payload beating a tiny 10 oz foamy lifting twice it's weight . . .

Also how long? Video of minimum 30s controlled flight + build log for entry?

Interesting.... I like it. I've heard of people doing it with helicopters and such, but never an airplane! I wanna see it too! I love this user generated challenges page!
