You don't really believe that is the reason do you? Do you have something to back this claim up?
Because it would come back and hit them?
There are many reason that would not happen, the weight of the controller is the biggest factor. The symmetry is not there.
What is It?
When we talk about boomerangs, we usually mean the curved devices that return to you when you throw them, but there are actually two different kinds
of boomerangs. The kind we're all familiar with, returning boomerangs, are specially crafted, lightweight pieces of wood, plastic or other material.
The controller is not made to be boomerang for hunting or returning.
Why Does It Come Back?
Unlike an airplane or helicopter propeller, which starts spinning while the vehicle is completely still, you throw the boomerang, so that in addition
to its spinning propeller motion, it also has the motion of flying through the air.
Check out the physics of the boomerang, on the same page.
