This “mad flip” figure is to be done within 3 wingspans distance from the center rotating axis of the glider and the ground. Wings parallel to the ground through the figure. Entry and exit may have minimal height difference. Over or under rotation of the flip will have a deduction. Glider must continue flying level on exit.
Bonus Points – Points are additive to the regular round of figure points only.

This 'freestyle video' example shows what is possible in the areas of originality and creativity. The performance includes at least 3 primary figures ie: tip drags, touch-n-go's, falling vertical knife edges and inverted passes. It also displays fluidic and flowing characteristics as well as clean and purposeful execution. The video can be used as a guide in developing your personal freestyle performance.
