Good video. I'm surprised it took you seven years to catch up :wink:

a quick vid I shot of The Crazy Copter King in 2006. 0.11 for the double

Not one of the variations in the vid is like the double, but I really like what he is doing...big thanks for sharing :-)

The one at 11 seconds is the same trick..... it's just that Piero executed it cleanly. Keep at it fella I'm sure you'll get there.

Nope, I have a full rotation more in it, before executing the second copter rotation...go to 720HD with full screen to see better, because the second copter rotation is in front of the green tree and not easy to see clearly. Pierro has overall 2,5 and I have overall 3,5 rotations...but hey, its a trick that I thought it would be worth sharing ;)

Exactly, that is a easier version of the same trick, to have the extra rotation as the kite is slowing down makes it easier to pick the point to add a rotation or reverse it for the cascade. I'm sure you are aware some kites like the DS and NFX will quite happily do four or five rotations of the crazy copter from just the first input.

I'm all for seeing new tricks and was quite surprised no one picked up on your other video the backspin comet was it? A few years ago that would have been a big thing, I guess that's just the way it has gone.
