Electric Fan Help

I am trying to expand my 5A “yo-cabulary” ( ;D yes, I did), and I am trying to learn Electric Fan. I just can’t seem to get both the yoyo and the counterweight going at the same time and still keep the yoyo on a straight plane without it falling of the string or something similar.
Any suggestions or tutorials I could look at?

Have you watched the video found here?

No, I haven’t. I will try that out.
