Yeah, I was gonna say part your issue with this concept probably has to with your disc throwing theory. There is no way to throw without oat, however comparing a gyro to throwing is not apples to apples. The goal of throwing is not to spin it, but it's to leverage it to its home. Part of our goal is to change the disc's cog so it can be leveraged like a hammer, and a gyro's goal is to maintain it's cog. Part of the problem with the gyro is that you are only applying another force after it's spun and it's cog is stable, where a disc's spin is more of a byproduct from being leveraged and it's cog is not stable until well into flight where drag dominates any gyro.


Check this puppy out, and it uses drag to stabilize the easier model from the wobble/oat.
