  • The maximum permitted wingspan is 13 in.
  • The minimum permitted wingspan is 10 in.
  • Motive power must be furnished by rubber band(s).
  • Models will be hand-launched.
  • Timing will commence upon release and will stop when model lands.
  • Any flight of six seconds or more will be counted as an 'official'.
  • Three official flights are allowed, and total will be contestant's score.
