These are fun on toggles and rears. Just make sure you have a fairly docile canopy and do them above your decision altitude because line twists can occur.
Perform a low speed stall, then right when you are about to stall and rock backwards, keep one toggle buried all the way and raise the other one up. The more you raise that toggle the faster it will heli, but it will be harder to keep it going and control it. They are easier to control on rears, but are fun on toggles too.

So glad that you enjoyed it ..... I love my P.G so much
Yes that was good fun. I was going for a hang-glider tandem but they all were busy with the competitions, and I only had a couple of hours before having to take the ferry. So I got myself a PG tandem.
We were *supposed* to fly a brand new canopy but ended up with one that didn't look quite so HP and the thing had a *zipper*. So you could make the wingload higher by zipping a couple of cells together
How's that for a feature? Maybe we could use it on big student canopies for the featherweights: just lose 2 cells on demand
I didn't have all that much faith in my PG TM, as first he made me leave all my stuff below then found out I didn't bring my wallet for the ski-lift, and also didn't bring anything warmer than a t-shirt because he didn't tell me to when i still had access to my stuff plus my helmet was way too big too so during the helicopter I had to use one hand to keep my helmet (and with it my sunglasses) on... When he told me to run off that mountain and to keep running until no more mountain was left, I did, which seemed to surprise him .
Hmz, maybe I should have asked some kind of credentials other than him knowing our local skydiving PG instructor. It all seemed kinda wish-washy in hindsight, but the ride was good fun Totally different canopy, and awesome visuals. Scary landing though, turning that low!
