    How to speedsolve a Curvycopter (non-jumbling)?

    I came up with my own method that does last layer completely differently and is probably way slower. https://www.speedsolving.com/threads/curvy-copter-discussion-new.75052/page-7#post-1383498 Basically it involves solving the corners (orientation and permutation) intuitively (not efficient)...

    Thanks for getting the word out. I can only see these appealing to serious big cube collectors.

    [Help Thread] Cubing for 10 months but only average 35 help

    at this speed there is no need for lookahead because f2l is the main bottleneck. if you know every f2l case then each should only take 2 seconds.

    How to speedsolve a Curvycopter (non-jumbling)?

    I measured my LanLan with a protractor and it's about 90 +- 12 deg, or 78 and 102 deg. I'm not good enough with geometry to say the precise angle mathematically. I don't think it's a fixed number, meaning you could in theory make the corners bigger and edges smaller, or vice versa.

    Kilominx timer?

    does it matter? my guess is that with enough moves, you'll reach a pretty random state. although I don't know enough about group theory or Markov chains to say.

    Can't you just use a standard megaminx scrambler?

    How to speedsolve a Curvycopter (non-jumbling)?

    Well F2L is mostly intuition too. My guess is the same applies for first layer. But for last layer, definitely algs exist which will save a lot of time performing commutators over and over.
