Flapjackin' the 'Fly

Wed May 21, 2014 5:57 pm

.....or not.

Anybody had any great success doing flapjacks on the SF?

The flip back into the turtle and the lazy rotation are give aways, but I can't get the nose back up to land it to save my life, other than by banging the nose on the ground.

I can multilazy and fly away so there must be something I'm doing when it comes out of the ML that I'm unable to replicate when doing the FJ.

Any ideas?

(Quite happy to put this one down to user incompetance. ;) )

Spin it before the turtle gets too deep... Exit the spin with the off hand. ( right hand spin - jam the tips into the ground with the left hand ).

That's sort of what I've been trying to do. Obviously a matter of timing (or lack of it!).

Good to know I'm heading in the right direction.

How I miss the Hinckley BFDs. Ideal for sorting problems like this.
