A stationary flip is one of the basic building blocks of 3D maneuvers. In it’s most basic form, it’s a loop performed without any forward motion. I like to perform them with pause at the inverted position. Let’s take a look at what it takes to do your own stationary flips.
The trick in getting the flip completely stationary is to properly time the collective at the inverted and upright positions. It also involves practicing the maneuver until you instinctively know exactly where the upright and inverted positions are on the collective stick. If you are too early or too late in releasing the cyclic, the flip won’t end exactly upright. Keep practicing and good luck!
