I bet very few, if any, pro discers even know, let alone care, what OAT is.

I had been playing for a long time when I found this site. Always in the pro division and I had never heard of OAT until I read it here. Along with discing down and a few other terms.

Just because those pros don't talk about it doesn't mean they don't understand the concept and have control over it.

It's also worth pointing out that understanding the concept doesn't really have anything to do with how well you're able to control it.

Why not call it "off axis rotation," which would become "OAR" as a TLA? Would that satisfy you, Dave?

Lol, I love how people think there aren't people that are naturally good at throwing discs. Surely, the only people who can properly throw a disc are the ones who have spent the proper time on DGR and DGCR. LULZ!

OAT is the condition of the axis of rotation is not perpendicular to the flight plate. AKA wobble. The axis of rotation starts at the rim (pinch point) and moves to the center of the disc during the flight. The torque is applied as the disc is released. IE wrist roll, or raising or lowering of the arm. In my limited experience i have yet to see a disc turn and burn without wobble.

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.
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.
I have one of these. They're actually really sweet. It's weird how they just seem to float through the air. Although it does kinda suck when it's coming straight at you and you can't see it because it's so thin and it hits you in the face.
