Boomerang Flight Dynamics - More Data!

Boomerang aerodynamics are based upon incredibly complicated math as outlined by Dr. John Vassberg's excellent tutorial at the University of Michigan. As one of Boeing's top aerodynamicists, Dr. Vassberg details the physics of boomerangs at a level beyond anything else we have seen. Dr. Vassberg holds over a dozen Patents related to aerodynamic technologies, and has authored over 100 publications. 

Dr. Vassberg used two of our boomerangs in his study, our Eric Darnell Trifly and a hand crafted Rangemaster by Roger Perry. He has no association with boomerangs.com and Colorado Boomerangs but his lecture is available on youtube at the link below. We hope you enjoy it!

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.

Gona play with the tuning

Boomerang came with little or no dehederal.No worries I'll just tune it up.The elbow is cut a little goofy .One side is wider....I'll make it work.😁

Nice steady flight

Verry cool boomerang.Super easy to catch..😁

This is a fun boomerang!

The Red one is a good flyer!I could throw this one all day and it's easy to catch.

Great boomerang, easy return

This is one of my favorites. It looks great, is easy to throw, and has an easy return. Highly recommended.
