    Does anyone have data (horizontal & vertical position vs. time) for the actual flight path of a trap target?

    Thanks for the feedback Easystreet. I'm familiar with this brochure, but I need more information than it provides. I need the the height and vertical position as a function of time along the entire trajectory. I know the bird leaves the house at 42mph, but it slows down considerably by the time it reaches the apex and much more so by the time it hits the 50 yard stake. I need this info for a computer simulation.

    bevolt, I think I recall Neil W. mentioning that he and Pat Ireland had their radar guns lost sight of the smoked target at about their peak and doing around 30 mph.
