Has to be something strong enough to handle the grip and force of being thrown by a macro, yet at the same time lightweight enough to sustain a reasonable flight, but still strong enough to not deform, etc.
So best answer... Don't over think it, just enjoy the joke. XD
At least for this one because we don't need to be bringing aerospace engineers into talks about theoretical giant Frisbees.
Hmm, actually, overthinking it MORE because of this ... and now actually thinking of more ways to make it safer. XD
Seems I didn't overthink it ENOUGH before, as I didn't even really think about the construction of the frisbee ... LOTS of options there for minimizing potential damage while also making it structurally sound. (could be a hollow fiberglass or other composite material or a more solid reinforced styrafoam-like material ... and either case with a coating of soft padding on the outer layer ... maybe even an inflated rubber impact buffer of sorts)
Heheh, this is neat, I hadn't even though of ANY of that before ... specialized toys and sports equipment. (both from the safety standpoint and the generally technically plausible end -if you want to take physics into things)
Hmm, something to keep in mind for my writing. ;3
