Managed to get this one down already (still working on the GT at the end). Sadly, it has made me realise how much I hate tutorials with no voice over or text descriptions. So many tricks could be easier to learn if it was made clear what is going on, or the string being landed on. Took about 20 mins of playing around to work out something that could of been explained in maybe 10 secs (but I’m a miserable old git, so don’t worry too much about me and my own preferences, as I’m likely in the minority).

However, this is a great trick and really fun to do.

Thank you so much Mark! I learned it off of EOS44’s vid playing it over and over, but your hints really solidify it <3.

This just proves how some simple audio descriptions of which string is being landed on, or the motion being done, can be so helpful and minimise the need for repetitive viewing of a video (especially if poor frame rate/angle/resolution).

Good work!

Long way to go to make it really smooth, but another fun one to do!

Its May and I wouldn’t feel right if we didn’t get some 5A going… today’s trick is a fundamental classic… doesn’t mean i can hit it but I’m gonna do my best.

Enjoy!

Bonus points for any variation you can show us!

My electric fan is more like a battery powered fan with cheap batteries from a .99 cent store… but i landed it and i will not get another chance to film this week so here you go.
Where are all the 5A throwers at!

I can’t let you be the only person this week, Mike!

I’m terrible at E-Fans and have neglected 5A for months now, so I’m going to try and improve a bit this month. Here’s my take after about an hour of attempts on this. I’m buckled up for the rest of the T-a-W’s this May!

I think with E-fans maybe a trick is to keep your arm tucked in, firmly planted against the side of your body. I’ve heard that advice for looping, to tuck a magazine under your armpit and make sure your arm stays against your body so the magazine doesn’t fall while you’re looping. It’s so much harder than it seems to keep your TH firmly in place so you don’t tilt the yoyo off plane. That was kind of helping me a bit.
