Comprehensive tutorial site.

Recommended Posts

aye m8 :blink: got em all downloaded. :)

I thought this site I listed would be of some help to newcomers as well. It is pretty helpful to me, being as I can write them down in my notebook word for word, make my own descriptions, and bring that out on the field to practice with. :)

Heres that same site, organized by function

AHHHHH taking a break and the link isn't coming up. Hope it's not gone for good cause like a fool I didn't download it. Used this more than anything else. Well I guess I'd better put up the Nighthawk cause it's the best when I fly angry. DANG NAB IT!!!!!!!!

That's why electronic data storage sucks -- things vanish rather easily.

Yup, watch those a lot. Don't emulate videos very well though. Understand what I'm seeing but feeling it is something else. Plus I get excited and forget. The reading seems to stick better. Not so much a whole trick but as I'm flying I can recognize a point of input even if I don't do it.  Reading allows me to see it in my 3rd eye. Makes for quicker reactions and a more intuitive feel.  99.9% of the time the book has always been better than the movie for me.They didn't do to awful bad a job with Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. Trying to turn a Terry Pratchett book into a movie would probably suck. Like in kiting it's the nuances in the LINES that grab ya.C'mon now that's funny. Kite lines. The written lines of a book. Alright maybe not so much. At the start his videos were the only ones I could come close to copying. Since I started flying my range of motion has improved a ton. The crisp mechanical way he demonstrates tricks is pretty much the only way I can fly in high winds.

I stumbled upon this really comprehensive site, listing and breaking down tricks in alphabetical order.

Enjoy. :blink:

Did anyone download these? Or did anyone find them mirrored/saved on an internet archive? 

If so, how could we get permission to share them?  It would be a shame to lose this very helpful information!

And, I should say “thank you” to p.j.f.peters for writing it, curating it, and/or making it available in the first place.

The way back when machine is your friend:

There was an updated version on Fractured Axel called the Tricky Wiki, however I think this is no longer supported following the last site update, although it is still accessible:
