Vertechx 9.0 - PAPER PLANE - MVJCE

INTRODUCTION

Inspired by the great Red Bull Paper flying event, this event would be one of its kind. This would also be the first time that MVJCE is conducting such an event. As such, students enjoy making paper planes, thereby getting to learn more about the basics of Aerodynamics of a flight.

LONGEST DISTANCE

  • Paper planes must only be constructed out of one piece of paper: standard A4 format (297×210mm), not more than 100gms. The sheet must be modified by folding only. No ripping, gluing, cutting, stapling or ballasting is allowed.
  • Paper planes have to be built at site, with the paper provided by the organizers.
  • The aircraft must be launched by one person throwing the aircraft unaided, from behind a straight launch line marked on the floor. Crossing the launch line would make the attempt invalid. Touching the launch line or any point beyond during the launch, would also be deemed to be an invalid attempt. The thrower may move beyond the launch line, after the paper plane hits the ground or any object.
  • Two trials per participant are allowed. Different planes can be used, the better attempt counts.
  • The longest distance will be measured with a standardized tape measure. For the purposes of measurement, the base point would be the starting line, and the first point where the paper plane hits the ground or any object would be the finish point. Results will be counted in m/mm or feet.

LONGEST AIRTIME

  • All contests will be held indoor, without any wind.
  • Paper planes must be constructed out of one piece of paper only: standard A4 format (297×210mm), not more than 100gms. The sheet must be modified by folding only. No ripping, gluing, cutting, stapling or ballasting is allowed.
  • Paper planes have to be built at site with the paper provided by the organizers.
  • The aircraft must be launched by one person throwing the aircraft unaided from a reasonably static position. The participant needs to have both feet firm on the ground during the attempt.
  • A run-up or fast walk as part of the launch is not permitted, nor is the use of ramps or like devices.
  • Two trials per participant are allowed. Different planes can be used, the better attempt counts.
  • Decisive for measurement are the moments when the paper plane leaves the hand and the first time it hits the ground or any object. Results are counted in tenth of seconds.
