Aerodynamics of Badminton Shuttlecock - Extended Essay

Hey guys,


so I've roughly chosen my research question to be: Calculating the variation of drag coefficient of a badminton shuttlecock during the period of one parabolic trajectory. Do you guys think it's a viable question? And if so, can you please advise me on some approaches to take that would be a good idea?


I have one idea: Take a video of a trajectory and plug the video into Logger Pro 3 to find the varying velocities.


Do you guys think that data would be sufficient for the calculation of the drag coefficients? 


Please help, I want to get started with my essay as soon as possible as I'm very interested in it. But I'm confused as to what approach to take.


Thanks in advance,
