You could also chalk the discrepancy up to RD being overconfident. Like I said, we only ever confirmed 2 pegasi to have reached the goal of 10 wingpower individually. It's entirely possible that they wouldn't have broken the record regardless.

Well, we have to keep in mind that Dash's wingpower was 16.5 BEFORE training, so it's not unreasonable to believe that it would increase. Also, while fluttershy's wingpower only increased by 1.8 in absolute terms, I think the hugeness is in proportional terms, since she improved by 360%. Diminishing returns surely kicks in the higher the base wingpower is, but if other ponies had proportional increaes even a third as strong as fluttershy's, that could make the difference.

I think Cloudchaser is right though, Derpy is the key. My hypothesis is that she has complex wingpower with a large imaginary component, and the anemometer can only measure real-axis speed. So they WOULD break the record if you go by the absolute value of their total wingpower, but projecting the final sum onto the real axis loses enough magnitude that it drops below the record.

You're making my brain hurt.

Because math is fun? Smile

Rainbow dash is the only Pegasus alive to do a Sonic Rainboom and she only has a wing power of 16.

Also kinda getting tired of seeing the Spitfire hate all over you wouldn't ask your science fair judge to help make your project would you? it would be unfair to all the other participants. Ponyville also only required two attempts to make the tornado work so they only failed once which didn't really give Spitfire the chance to help since Rainbow said "One more time I got to know we gave it our all" which means she didn't want Spitfire's help she wanted to do it with out help from her idol or any other Pegasus outside Ponyville as a sort of pride thing.
