Boomerang Physics

Boomerang Physics 101

Kevin Verbael boomerang physics physics

Despite the simple appearance of the boomerang, the characteristic returning flight is guided by a complex combination of physics and aerodynamics. The returning boomerang is most commonly two wings jointed at angle between 80° and 120°, however, some newer boomerangs have more than two wings. The combination of spin and forward motion create an uneven lift over the wings. As the air flow passes over one wing faster than the other lift is created. When thrown correctly, boomerangs will return. The natural spin of the boomerang twists at right angles, which results in the boomerang's curving flight. Since the center...

Awesome Boomerang!

This boomerang has a wide turn which I like. Looks of air time. You have to tune, but once it's tuned, enjoy!!

Solid boom

Solid boom a little on the thick/heavier side but fun to throw. My boom actually snapped in half the second day on a chain link fence post.

a boomerang for children

This is a great boomerang for my eleven year old son to throw because it will return to approximately where he is standing, which he couldn't manage with the other boomerang I bought. At the same time it's made of foam and doesn't feel like it's going to remain in good shape for very long. We've just started using it and it already has creases and appears to be losing its optimal shape, but it is surprisingly easy for a child to get it to return.

Love it!!!

I can't wait to learn how to 'rang'!, with my new boomerang! It's beauty is awesome! Thanks again for a great product!!! What a great hobby!!👍🤘👍🤘👍

Gave this boomerang a few quick throws as it's going on a prize table. It flies beautifully. An easy 30 yards in medium wind for us. A young thrower will be very lucky to get this one.
