1 2 3 4 5


You have 15 minutes working time to make 5 launches. You must try to fly 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 minutes flights in ANY order, these are maximum flight times. You are allowed ONLY 5 STARTS to make the required time so launch only 5 times in total.

Explanation: 
Try to make a whole minute length flight.

Example:
Flight 1: 170 seconds
Flight 2: 90 seconds
Flight 3: 315 seconds
Flight 4: 70 seconds
Flight 5: 78 seconds

Order them from high to low, and max the score to 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 minute:

  • Flight 3: 315 seconds 300 sec max = 300 s
  • Flight 1: 170 seconds 240 sec max = 170 s
  • Flight 2: 90 seconds 180 sec max = 90 s
  • Flight 5: 78 seconds 120 secmax = 78 s
  • Flight 4: 70 seconds 60 sec max = 60 s

The total for this task = 300 + 170 + 90 + 78 + 60 = 698 seconds

 

Score:
The best time gets 1000 points
Theoretically it is possible to fly 900 - 5 seconds seconds
If someone did make 720 seconds (1000 points) and you did 698, then your score is (698/720)*1000 = 969 points
