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 of lift is forward of the center of gravity another tipping force is created, making the boomerang lie down during its flight. The combination of these spinning forces is called gyroscopic precession.

Glow fling ring

The glow in the dark fling ring glows 10 times brighter and glows longer than any other rang I've seen. Lots of fun to throw on a dark moonless night

Great Product

My boomerang shipment was delivered very fast and I was really happy with it.
Beautiful designs and if you follow the directions and practice, you'll find the boomerang coming back to you in no time.
For now the Pelican is my favorite, but every one I've tried is great.

Beautiful flyers

After tuning, performance was excellent! Thank You!

Works Great !

It came back, worked great at first try for 8 year old grandson. Read directions and saw video first.

Awesome

The greatest easy flying boomerang and almost can do two circles

Grandson loves it

Bitchen boomerang!

Big big circle. Threw it today in 25mph gusty winds and still caught it many times. Hit the ground several times but 25mph and swirling winds!
Fast. Easy catch. Love this bitchen rang! Prolly gonna get another!

Wrong item

I ordered the Glow in the Dark Lightning, but received the Color Glow Lightning that turns purple. Highly disappointed to say the least.
