2021 Annual Challenge

This year the challenge is to build and fly a rocket using helicopter recovery, the winner achieving the longest flight duration from take-off to touch down.

The rules are simple:

  • Recovery must be solely by auto rotation around the vertical  axis.
  • Maximum motor size A.
  • Rocket may not separate any piece during flight.
  • More than one model may be flown multiple times, subject to time constraints on the day.

The Cadbury Creme Egg  competition in April:

  • Maximum motor size C
  • Rocket may not separate any piece during flight.
  • More than one model may be flown multiple times, subject to time constraints on the day.
  • The longest flight duration from take-off to touch down, winner takes all eggs.
