Why do RHBH discs turn right?

Factors that increase the right turn of a RHBH disc:

1.Higher spin rate

2.Narrower rim

3.Nose down.  Below 9 degrees Angle of Attack (AoA) contributes to a right turn by precession

4. Being beat in

5. Headwind

6. Lighter weight of the same mold, same disc

7. Lower density plastic

8. Higher dome

9. Air temperature. 

The sub-pages below will examine each of these factors in search of common traits.
