Yeah, that.

GYRO(tm) boosts the inherent gyroscopics with a weighted rim.
The end effect of boosting gyroscopics is that your train conductor, the wing of the disc, stays oriented for optimal flight for a longer period of time.

If the wing is your train conductor, GYRO keeps him awake longer, taking the train farther down the tracks before he falls asleep and crashes the whole thing.

That's what I said. Minus the whole train conductor thing.

Thanks.

He threw the specially formulated fuel into the furnace, exited the cabin, inched his way to the front of the locomotive with the aide of the hoverboard, but upon hearing his lover's voice calling from several cars back, made the decision to let Marty travel back to 1985 alone, save Clara, and remain with her in 1885.

Im more addressing his statement that it made it better in the wind because of the gyro, im trying to say that is stupid and makes no sense

Glad someone like UPS has the patienct to explain it to ignorant masses.

Also, the overmold is the same plastic, it just has weight agent in it, to make it heavier.. thats the whole point. MORE gyroscopic effect. (now i will be flamed =/)

And I'm saying you're wrong. All other things being equal (meaning two discs of the exact same shape), the more weight a disc has further away from its center of rotation, the straighter it's gonna fly, no matter the wind. In theory the gyro should make the disc more stable. Not overstable and not understable, but stable. In other words it should hold its line better. Wind or no wind. In other words, straighter. That is what I'm trying to say.

Okay, but you do understand that a headwind will make a stable disc act as if its understable, so when you say "no matter the wind" that is dumb. The wind is a huge factor in the relative stability of a disc and the flight path it will take. Its a gyro, not a laser. It doesnt just go straight until it stops.

I wish... I've had no time to fap to KP or go to GGGT due to work. 60 hour work weeks since Christmas puts a damper on everything.

Calling me stupid brings to mind your inability to explain in a more civil, educated manner why i am wrong.

I know what a Gyroscope does, it resists change in axis from the initial axis the effect was generated in. That's why when you spin a bike wheel and turn it right side up it resists any change in axis from where you set it.

From this understanding i have, i would say a more gyroscopic disc would more so resist a turn/fade caused by wind than other discs without more weight in the rim.

I'm not saying it would be completely wind resistant, but just a little more because of a larger gyro effect
