Hanging 1-turn Airplane
« on: 02 March, 2012, 16:21:21 »
I have gotten it twice so far one of which was super sketchy.
The main problem I'm having is catching the ball at the right time and/or being able to recover the hole from a 'bad' catch.

Just looking for a little feedback on this trick, I would really like to have it somewhat consistent in the future.

Thanks everyone,

In a different thread, I wrote this:
I can't seem to figure out the hanging airplane thing - that's a new one to me, it's going to take quite a bit of practice.
I do a small back-swing (about 30˚) then let a highish launch do the work for the rotation[1]. I can get the spin about right most of the time. Trouble is, I get the catch position wrong a lot of the time. :-/

Also, as soon as you release the string, I try to (almost) immediately grab the ball. i.e. after it's done barely more than a quarter-turn[2]. That should give the time needed to adjust the grip/position of the ball before landing the catch.
 2. Okay, after typing that, I just tried it, and it's more like 3/8ths of a turn. :)
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!
