Shuttleworth Long Distance :: Gordon Shuttleworth
Download the print size image here.

Material: paxolin 3mm (4mm, GFEC 3mm ?)

Distance: 100m ?

Update [2005]: Just got this message from Gordon:
The plan shown was not my record boom of the 1993 Sedan comp. I used a Challenger variant for that throw.
The plan shown was/is definately not a variant of a Herb Smith 'rang, the design came from me. The point made about it being prone to breakage when fully wieghted has some truth, but I will point out that a few of Herbs designs had the same attribute. I hope this has been of some use. I am currently experimenting with the boomerang in the plan in 3mm fibreglass and completely different airfoils.

Thanks for clearing this up Gordon! :)

[2001] Gordon Shuttleworth was probably the second most important LD thrower in Britain after Herb Smith. He held the national record over 103.5 m (set in Sedan, F, 1993) for 8 years. We are not sure if this is the record breaking boom, though. The plan was published in the German "Bumerang Welt" magazine, issue IV/90. The name of the boom is not clear, the plan was just titled "Long Distance". It is possible that the shape is a variation of one of Herb Smith's designs, at least it looks very similar to one of them. The original material is 3mm paxolin, but we think 4mm pax or 3mm GFEC might work better (certainly it will be less prone to breaking). The full weighting is two holes of 12mm diameter on the leading wing filled with lead. Beginners are advised to use less weight. The airfoil is the same for both wings, so the plan only shows the crossections on one. It is not very aggressive, rather blunt leading edges and small undercuts. Actually, in the description of the plan it says that the boomerang has to be thrown DOWNwards, which is a clear indication of excesive lift.
