High speed video of Archers Paradox

Recorded at four thousand frames per second (fps) with the Photron ultima APX, this high speed clip shows the 'archers paradox' where a box fired arrow oscillates in the first few seconds of flight...

Arrow spine not heavy enough for bow strength...

Hope you are staying warm or cool. How are conditions in the big "catbox" of the world?
