One day by the course there was one of the traffic radar trailers sitting there and I went over and threw a couple of discs past it and I got a speed of 43 MPH. I know I don't have much of an arm so I guessing that isn't very fast.
Are there any measurements of how many RPMs disc has as it leaves the hand? This can be done by throwing a disc dyed 1/2 black and 1/2 white with a high speed video camera over head and counting the rotations in slow motion. This would tell you how much snap you get. I'd love to see a study on rpm vs speed effect on the distance of a frisbee's flight.
