Taz machine that launches from the ground and rotates Taz to fly away position, but lands again on the opposite tip? get it?
like a coin toss but you taz in the middle..

tipstand to taz to (normal) fly away position but tip stand again on the opposite tip.

and then reverse... get it?

has anyone on this forum done that trick before? does it have a name?
You guys here seem to know this kind of stuff so could you help me out?

It's called a G-wiz, it's as old as the hills was invented back in the day on the Phantom.

There's a half ass one on my Element vid, and Pierro has a few on some of his (VF last time around?). Never cascaded it though - nice thought.

I've heard the name before somewhere. COOL!
thanks, Pete.

found the description on PeterPeters site:

"Start with a wing tip stand. For example you pull your left wing up and the nose starts rotating in a clockwise direction. Let the nose go right until the leading edge is almost about to touch the ground and then push your left hand forward to pancake the kite, nose away from you. Before the belly of the kite hits the ground, pop with your right hand to initiate the 540 flat spin. The kite spins in an anti-clockwise direction (looking from above).
This trick can be started from a coin toss as well, to get the kite into a pancaked position. The Twisted Sister is a similar trick."

a little different & no mention of landing or reversing but its pretty much all there. Thats tight.

(btw this description is not in your wiki reference)

thanks again gents have a good week end.
