I thought the piece was a bit corny, but the fact that non disc golf media venues are taking an interest, and discussing how dynamic disc flight can be, is great by me.

Default Philo albatross on science channel outrageous acts of science

https://youtu.be/nWvQVOt6jks
So I saw this the other day on the science channel. It's pretty cool how the scientists break down the physics of flight. Surprising, but I can't but help questioning some of there reasoning with nose up thing which we are always trying to throw nose down on longer shots. What do u guys think? Oh I'm pretty computer illiterate so yea I didn't embed the link.

"The theory of disc golf is actually quite simple. Physically achieving that is something you earn over time."

Well put sir.

I was hoping it would be a bit longer and more in depth, but oh well.

I think the nose up thing is really just referring to the fade portion of the flight. Obviously we are trying to keep the nose down as long as possible in order to prevent the slowing of the disc for as long as possible. This is why high parting line of disc molds is often correlated with overstability in flight.

Philo is a class act. Glad to see him get a shot out nationally on such an epic shot!
