Does this have a name?

Mon Dec 17, 2007 9:58 am

From belly, down nose away, on the ground... pop to fade... half backspin... pop to turtle... lazy susan... snappy landing to tips? Any one know what this combo's called (apart from lots of fun :cool: )?

French Toast to Flapjack = Flappy Toast?
You can make your neighbours think that you have fluorescent lights in all the rooms in your house by quickly turning the lights on and off several times before leaving them on.

Great, now every time I do this trick I'm gonna think "french flaps" and have fits of hysterics! :roll: :lol:

A Flap Jack starts with the wing tips on the ground nose pointing up. Then the nose is allowed to fall slightly forward before the kite is popped into a turtle. it is the half Lazy to landing back on it's wingtips. It is not started from belly down nose away.

Matt was asking if the combo he detailed had a name, I don't think anyone suggested it was a Flap Jack. Consensus (well me and Johnny Depp) seem to like 'French flaps' goodness knows why..........

Curious is all. If someone's going to claim a "trick", it's good to know when they claim it was first shown.

I'm not claiming the trick, I just call it "Mine". Or "The Mine" possibly. Don't you like the name ?

Man, you really get the wrong end of the stick sometimes #-o

Perhaps I don't use enough smileys. It's not the first time someone's taken me serious when I'm being quite far from it.

I amuse myself... and not many others

Cool, so it does exist, people are doing it and it (sort of) has a name :D... I don't know the names of many of the combos I do anyway!
