Ok, then how do you explain a frisbee that can curve either way, even though it's always thrown with the same direction of spin. And please include the coriolis effect in your explanation (now that it is implimented in JSBSim.)
Thank you. :-)
Gyroscopic stabilization and tilt.
Which gets us to the one milion dollar question: "Can you frisbee on mars?"
You can, but south of the equator it will break the opposite direction.
It must be a great sight, the first man on Mars playing frisbee with a colleague.
(Now I start to wonder why we always smash our probes on the surface of Mars).
