Buzz Whip :: David Schummy
Download the print size image here.

Material: Glassfiber/Epoxy Composite 3.5 to 2.5 (3mm to 4mm! pax is also possible)

Distance: 90-180m

[1998] That's the boomerang David Schummy used to set a new World Record (174 m, St. Louis 1998). Actually we are not quite sure which version accomplished the 174m, so we simply posted both for you to try out. I (Tibor) made several copies of both and am not sure which is better. I feel like the lower version works better in low wind conditions, while the upper shape works fine in nice winds. (Please if you are interested in purchasing one of Schummys boomerangs, proceede directly to his homepage: http://www.fixaframe.com.au/) I made copy in 4mm paxolin. It works well, but won't go all the wayout. However, I then decided to build an enlarged (119%) version and made it of 4mm pax. Works fine. The choice of material should definitly be a very rigid thin (2.5mm would be best I guess) composite. G10 gets warped quite fast after a few crashes. G11, a higher quality GFEC, should do the job.
The Schummy airfoil is very sophisticated. There are multi-step edges, changes in the center-line, built-in angles of attack an so on. So our "Schummy" airfoil is just a rough guess. However, we are sure that the leading edge is quite pointed and that the undercut is very pronounced, more than half the material thickness at some points.
