Holy Projectile Motion Bat-Man

This may be the simplest device ever created with the weirdest laws of kinematics surrounding it.

What is it? Well, its a funny looking loop that flies up to 655 feet. This thing has broken world records. Thats over 6 football fields by the way. But what are the laws of physics surrounding this thing??

I wish I had definitive answers. Just be observing the way that it flies, I can see that it moves like a frisbee that is thrown forward, and since a frisbee operates by creating a low pressure zone on top of itself so that it gets lift, I can only assume that this toy is magically creating a low pressure zone in front of itself…any input on this topic would really help me get a weight off my shoulders. This means you physics C!
