    Any advise on 1up lunar?...can't seem to get the Ken under control when the flip is happening.

    You wanna give it the same half twist like you do for pulling it up to lunar.
    Only difference here is you're going to have to give it more of a tug to get it to 1 turn.
    Have you landed 1 turn airplane yet? It's like that trick.
    You twist the big cup and let go, when the ken twists and the big cup is facing towrds you, you swing it up like a 1 turn airplane so the big cup is in a straight position, and then you catch the big cup on the tama.
    I learned a lot of tricks from the Sweets tutorials back in the day so maybe this'll help!

    Thanks for the help. Finally landed it tonight. Hard to explain but my tug on the string was more precise then 1up LH and it smoothed out the flip of the Ken to lunar.

    Dope, glad I could help! I think I know what you mean, that precise string tug is the exact thing that will help you get more rotation for the 2 and 3 turn lunars that you'll eventually land

    Can anyone else give some tips on consistently getting it flipping on the right axis?
    I can one turn airplane 9/10 times but when it comes to lunar it's all over the place
