a v2 is flying high and fast, air friction is neglectable at that altitude

will the v2 offer the same resistance to roll at 10000km/h than at 0?

i would say no, wouldnt this explain why is easier to balance on one iceskate at a speed?

As long as the IAS is the same it should perform exactly the same.

This might be true if they were Hitler's ice skates and carried several tons of high explosives and rocket fuel and had huge gyroscopes to keep them on target.

This is one of your most bizarre questions yet - and that's saying something.

I think the reason that it's easier to balance on one ice skate at speed, if that is true, is because you need to deflect the skate very little at high speed in order to keep it underneathe your centre of gravity. Small adjustments made by your cerebellum keep the skate under you, where-as at low speeds, you sort of have to swirve around.

that explains it all, thanks homer
